When it comes to babyproofing your home there is a running “to-do” list at all times that covers everything from covering electrical outlets to installing safety gates in all doorways. Today, we are going to focus on doorknobs and lever locks to prevent little ones from accessing unwanted internal rooms or potentially dangerous household areas such as laundry rooms, garages and bathrooms.
Restrict access to certain rooms by using our Dreambaby® Door Knob Covers and Lever Door Locks. Continue reading to learn the differences and determine which option is best for your specific space:
Door Knob Covers can be used in all rooms of the house. A door knob cover helps to prevent a child from opening the door by making it more complicated to turn the knob, similar to child-proof caps on medicine bottles. Doorknob covers are great as they remain on the knob and you don’t need to remember to put them back in place each time the door is used.
- Great to use on doors inside the home.
- Made to fit most standard doorknobs
- An access hole that allows you to still use locking push or twist buttons on doors
Door Lever Locks
Doors with lever-style handles are the easiest for toddlers and children to open. By simply grabbing the handle and pulling down, a child can easily access a room that might be off-limits. Dreambaby® Lever Lock
It’s often said, the kitchen is the heart of the home and where families spend the most time together. With that in mind, keeping the kitchen area as safe as possible is vital for children to help eliminate potentially unsafe areas.
Whether you’re planning a long drive to a relative’s house or a flight across time zones, our suggestions below will help keep your family safer, sound and sane during your holiday visits.
As you begin to plan out your baby’s room, your new bundle of joy is sure to spend quite a bit of time in their nursery. The nursery is the place for your little one to rest and grow, ensure its baby proofed so they can rest comfortably - and as parents can rest comfortably too.
Ideally, parenting experts recommend starting as early as three months before your due date to ensure you give yourself enough time - should your little one decide to come a little early.
Our living room is a place we come together as a family and relax. But for little ones, there are many hazards and dangers. Parenting experts say it’s never too early to baby proof your home to help eliminate potentially unsafe areas.
Remember, once your baby starts to crawl (around 6 to 10 months), you'll need to do a second baby proofing round to make sure the house is safer for a baby on the move. After all, a lot of fun playtime happens in the living room so ensuring it’s babyproof will help put your mind at ease as they play.
