H is in full exploration toddler mode 24/7 lately. This makes mama very nervous. He has no fear. He jumps off of things, climbs everything, opens every drawer and cabinet. He is very busy and keeps me on my toes. The other day, he figured out how to get in our cabinet even with a childproof lock on it. He is a smart one. He grabbed one of my spray bottles of cleaning solution and it scared me half to death! I ran over to him and grabbed it and gave him a very serious talk. It got me thinking though, have I read many child safety tips and how safe is our house, really?
After reading a little bit from Smith and Noble, I realized that there are far more dangers in our home than I realized.
Here are a few basic child safety tips for your home:
Cover Your Outlets
Have Child Friendly Window Treatments – Smith and Noble recommends you move all climbable furniture away from windows and use cordless window treatments in homes with small children due to strangulation risks.

Window treatments are definitely one thing I did not think about when buying our home. You learn a lot after owning your first house. Our next house, I am definitely looking for safe window treatments. In the meantime, I would love to win $1,000 worth of window treatments from Smith and Noble! How awesome would that be?
