Navigating the Exciting Milestones of Baby Proofing

As your little bundle of joy grows and begins to explore their surroundings, it’s time to consider baby proofing your home. Witnessing your baby’s rapid development, from adorable coos to curious crawling, can leave you both amazed and on high alert. But fear not! First Steps Safe Steps is here to guide you through the journey of baby-proofing, ensuring a safe haven for your little explorer.

When is the Right Time to Baby Proof?

Every baby has their unique timeline for reaching developmental milestones. However, certain signs indicate that it’s time to embark on the baby-proofing adventure:

  • Commando Crawling or Crawling: Usually observed between 5 to 10 months, crawling signifies your baby’s newfound mobility and desire to explore.
  • Attempting to Climb or Pulling Up: When your little one starts trying to climb steps or pulls themselves up on furniture, it’s time to be extra cautious.
  • Interest in Low-Lying Objects: If they show curiosity in objects on low shelves, it’s a sign they want to explore the world around them.
  • Multiple Rolling: Rolling multiple times in quick succession demonstrates their physical growth and eagerness to move.
  • Curiosity in Environment: A sudden interest in their surroundings and an eagerness to investigate further signify their readiness to explore.

Remember, each baby follows their own pace, so observe their cues and take baby-proofing steps accordingly.

Making Baby Proofing a Positive Experience:

Baby proofing need not be a daunting task; it can be an enjoyable experience for both you and your child. Here are some tips to get started:

  1. Assess Your Home: Conduct a thorough assessment of your living space to identify potential hazards like sharp corners, electrical cords, or unsecured furniture.
  2. Tailor the Solutions: Not all baby-proofing products are the same. Select items designed to address your unique needs and home challenges.
  3. Seek Professional Advice: If you’re unsure about the best baby-proofing practices or products, our experts at First Steps Safe Steps are ready to assist you.
  4. Stay Up-to-Date: As your baby grows and explores, regularly review and update safety measures to ensure ongoing protection.

Embrace this exciting phase of your baby’s life by creating a safe environment where they can thrive and explore freely. Whether you’re preparing for a newborn or already have an active crawler, First Steps Safe Steps is dedicated to supporting you throughout the baby-proofing journey. Let us help you make baby-proofing a positive and empowering experience, allowing your little one to discover the world safely.

Fantastic Service

Fantastic service. Mitch gives great advice on baby proofing. He opened our eyes to where we needed to baby proof and also saved us money by making sure we didn’t “over baby proof” our house. He was tidy and did a great job installing baby proofing around our house. Thanks again we will definitely refer you to our friends and family!

Greatly Appreciated

I would like to thank Mitch for his help in “Twinado” proofing our living areas. His prompt and efficient service is greatly appreciated (though not by the twins, they were less than impressed that they could no longer get into my DVD cabinets!)

Prompt & Reliable Service

I contacted First Steps Safe Steps to install safety gates. They offered an appointment 2 days later and came at the agreed time. Mitchell was able to fix all our problems on the spot and provided further advice. We choose the roller blind gates that have a slim and discreet look. Thanks so much Mitchell for the prompt and reliable service. We now have more freedom and peace of mind while caring for our little 1 year old. I definitely recommend their services.

Fantastic Experience

I had a fantastic experience with First Steps Safe Steps today…

It was SO easy…I rang Mitchell (the owner) to arrange a time, he then visited our house, assessed what was needed to ‘baby proof’, provided a quote, and then installed all requested items…all within two hours!

Mitchell was super friendly and polite, did a great job, cleaned up afterwards, and even offered to do an odd job that he noticed while there. I can’t recommend it more highly!!
