When/where should I start baby proofing?

Make sure you leave yourself plenty of time! Take a look here for more.


Ideally, you need to baby proof your home before your little one starts crawling or walking, because once they start moving, they won’t stop! Very quickly you will begin to realise how dangerous your home is, we recommend you start baby proofing at around 6 months so you are ready in plenty of time for baby to start crawling.

It can be daunting to look at your whole house and try to work out what you need to baby proof, so we recommend working your way through the house room by room.

Get down to your toddlers level by crawling around on your hands and knees (yes really!) so that you can identify the dangers and then make a list of everything you need to move or safeguard in that room before moving on to the next.
There are some great starter kits available on our website.
