A new laundry detergent ad from Tide showcased all these common hazards around the house, which pose the biggest risk to under five-year-olds. See below for the video.
To baby-proof your home and minimise the risks, there are a few things you can do.
You can go to your local Bunnings and get some baby locks to put on cupboards, and also a baby gate.
Get down low to the floor – your child’s level – and look for unattended power sockets and bits and bobs on the ground. Check heaters, animal food, pets, over-spilling handbags, potentially toppling TVs or coffee tables, medicine or cleaning products in easy-to-reach spots, and even water from a dogs bowl.
Blind cords are also important to manage as they are a huge risk to health. In Australia, one or two children in Australia die from strangulation of blind or curtain cords.
So, long story short – check EVERYTHING.
