Steps You Need to Take to Make Your Living Space Safe Before the Baby Comes
  • Opening Intro -

    If you have a little one on the way, you've probably been reading baby books and stocking up on diapers and clothes.

    You might not have thought about preparing your living space just yet, but it's important to make your home as safe as possible before you bring your little one home.


Luckily, these tips can help you get ready for your family’s new arrival.

Get Rid of Clutter

Getting rid of clutter is essential for a few reasons. First of all, you will probably need to clear your place out to make room for your crib, baby swing and other baby items. Having excess clutter around also gives your baby more to get into, so throw things away or donate them if you don’t need them anymore. If you have small objects that you just can’t part with, pack them away safely on a top shelf of a closet or in a storage unit.

Consider Moving Into an Apartment

If you haven’t thought about it already, you may want to consider moving into an apartment. Apartments are smaller and therefore easier to baby-proof and care for, and they often offer added security features. According to professionals at MetCap Living, many apartments and condos also feature playgrounds and more that you can take advantage of when your little one gets a bit bigger. Whether you are living with someone else and don’t want to pressure them into changing their home, or if you are looking for change, an apartment is a great choice for kids.

Baby-Proof the Area

It won’t be long before your baby is crawling, and you might not have the time to baby-proof your home before then if you don’t get started now. Get protective covers for your electrical outlets, and crawl around on the floor to look for potentially dangerous objects. Get baby locks for kitchen and bathroom cabinets that are closer the ground as well.

Invest in a Baby Monitor

A baby monitor is a handy tool for listening in on your little one while everyone is in bed. Pick one up and place it in the nursery so that you can hear your baby if he or she wakes up in the middle of the night. It helps you not worry about leaving your baby asleep in another room, and helps them sleep better by having a quiet space without you opening the door constantly.

Prepare for Emergencies

No matter how careful you might be to adequately prepare your home for your baby, there is always a chance that an emergency could occur. Make sure that you’re ready by compiling a list of important phone numbers and preparing a small first aid kit.

Preparing for a baby isn’t a fast process, so take your time and plan ahead to ensure that your home is a safe spot for your new little one.
