Safety Gates are a must have in about any home, it's far easier to baby proof a room or two than your whole home...not to mention keeping them away from stairs. You want to really look at the different options as some of these require screws into the walls or cabinets (Yikes!). There are ways around this so you don't damage expensive woodwork, walls or railings. They make tension gates or kits to attach to stair rails.
Corner bumpers are great for people with stone accents like fireplaces or menacing looking furniture. You have lots of options with these so shop around to find the perfect ones for you. If you want something a bit nicer the Hearth Soft is pretty amazing!
Anti-Scald Devices are also a great idea with kids coming into the house, most newer homes have these already. Basically they limit the water to 120°F to prevent scalding accidents. If you don't want to install this in your home or you rent we can also adjust the temperature of the hot water heater for you.
Spout Covers are an absolute Must...these are typically under $10 and can save your kiddo from stitches, bumps and bangs. If you don't think this is important just ask John about his son and the bath spout...it's horrific, you don't really want to know...trust us just buy the thing.
Outlets Covers are one of the most basic baby proofing products on the market. Be sure to look into child proof power strips and start thinking about your home office...computer wires everywhere? Yep, you may need to get that organized and tucked out of sight. Same thing with TV wires and all those fun electronics, it may be a wise time to mount that TV on the wall & bury the wires in the wall.
Anti Tip Straps are a must for a house with tiny tots....they climb like lemurs! You should make sure your stove has an anti tip bracket, television stands, shelves, bookcases, dressers, desks, and chests should be strapped to the wall to prevent tipping.
