There are so many wonderful milestones new parents enjoy. That first smile your baby gives you, the first time they roll over, they first start to crawl, and especially their first steps. Once your child becomes mobile, however, the moments of worry start coming through. What if they get into a cabinet and hurt themselves? What if they pull an item off a shelf and it breaks? What if they electrocute themselves? Your one safe home is now filled with a lot of things that can harm a child. Thankfully there are items out there to help protect our little ones. Here are our favorites.
Safety gates are much needed in the home. Whether you have stairs or want to keep baby out of certain rooms, you will need a good quality safety gate. We love the Regalo Safety Gates! They are sturdy, well made and come in a modern design perfect for any home decor. These safety gates also come in many sizes. We have a 60″ opening to get from the living room to the kitchen and many safety gates do not fit the opening. Thankfully Regalo has Extra Wide safety gates that can fit it. They even have Extra Tall ones!
Regalo Baby Safety Gates are easy to install and are easy for adults to go in and out from.

Keep cabinets and drawers off limits to curious little ones with the 9-Piece Complete Magnetic Locking System by Safety 1st.What I love is the fact there is no need to drill a hole into your cabinets. Simply install the lock inside cabinet or drawer and then use the powerful magnetic key to open when needed. This set includes 8 locks and 1 key, allowing you to secure multiple cabinets and drawers. The magnetic key is easy to store high up and out of reach from children and the locks install inside cabinets and drawers, keeping them out of sight.
Did you know that on average, one child dies every 10 days when a TV or furniture falls onto him or her. 46 percent of tip-over fatalities occur in a bedroom. 91 percent of tip-over fatalities occur in the home. Please secure all furniture and heavy electronics in your home. There are a lot of products sold out there to help keep those heavy items from falling.
Here are some helpful tips you should know: meghanshope.org/resources.
Once your baby learns to pull themselves up or can stand on their own, you need to start thinking about what they can grab. Stove knobs can easily be turned on without notice and you need to be able to protect them.
There are so many different outlet covers out there. Each one will be just fine depending on what you are looking for. I personally love the basic clear ones that go right into the outlet. No need to replace the plating and it’s easy for an adult to remove if needing to plug something in.
I received a safety gate to review, all opinions my own.
