MODERN FITTED KITCHENS AND BABYPROOFING

MODERN FITTED KITCHENS AND BABYPROOFING

 

Once your child reaches toddler age, life can get pretty busy.  You’ll want to make sure you baby-proof the home before your child starts crawling, toddling and exploring.  Here we take a look at the kitchen area and recommend the best babyproofing products for the kitchen, from cooker guards and socket covers to fire safety equipment, everything you need to know for keeping young children safer in todays’ modern kitchen.  Here’s a quick guide to useful babyproofing products that will keep your active baby or toddler safe in and around the kitchen and make your life as a parent easier.

 

KEEP YOUR TODDLER SAFE AROUND CONCERTINA DOORS

 

In todays’ modern, open plan kitchens concertina doors are becoming increasingly popular.  Heavy, robust, hinged doors which can be lethal should a child’s tiny fingers get caught up in them.  Doors that open from the kitchen into the garden where young children may be in and out of frequently can be made safer with a few simple steps.  An under door gripper such as the Clippasafe under door gripper prevents doors from being slammed shut and can be used on a wide range of floor surfaces.  Door stoppers are ideal for popping on to a single door edge.  A door stopper to prevent a door being slammed shut is a low budget item that can be popped with ease onto any door and can save tiny fingers from injury.   Finger trap protection strips are the best way of protecting your child’s fingers from doors.  The Safetots front and rear door finger protection strips and the Clippasafe finger trap protection strips provide full protection to the hinge side of a door preventing fingers from being able to enter this lethal area of a door.

 

INVEST IN SOME GOOD CUPBOARD AND DRAWER LOCKS

 

Some of the most popular and best kitchen safety products are kitchen cupboard and drawer locks.  By installing a few locks to kitchen drawers containing sharp utensils or cupboards containing cleaning goods, infants are prevented from accessing these areas and kept safe from coming into contact with potential dangerous kitchen items.  Magnetic kitchen drawer locks such as the Safetots magnetic cupboard and drawer lock are becoming increasingly popular with parents as they are installed with adhesive pads and there is no lasting damage to kitchen furniture. Locks for kitchen units can either be installed internally or externally depending on the type of lock purchased.

 

KEEP YOUR TODDLER SAFE AROUND A COOKER AND HOB

 

Scolding oven hobs, hot oven doors, boiling kettles, exposed sockets, leads and potential wet, slippery surfaces are just a few of the potential dangers infants face when entering the kitchen.  As parents we are wired to instinctively know what we need to do to protect our children and keep them safe, however, it’s not always possible to have that watchful eye over them at all times around the clock.  Babyproofing products for the kitchen enable you to child proof cooker hobs, oven doors, sockets and generally keep children safer in a potentially hazardous zone of the home.

 

COOKER HOB GUARDS

 

Hob guards and hob screens, are clear glass screens that clip onto a stove and prevent infants from reaching up and touching a hot hob.  Before ordering a hob cover, make sure it is compatible with your style and brand of oven.  Hob guards protect infants from burn injuries caused by contact with a hot stove.  Cooker guards often have a dual function and rotate downwards to cover the knobs on an oven, preventing children from switching the oven on and off and potentially leaving gas running.  Clippasafe Oven and stove knob guards are separate fixtures that fix to the dials, suitable for stove and oven knobs.

 

CONSIDER FITTING AN OVEN DOOR GUARD

 

The external door of an oven can reach considerably hot temperatures and it’s very easy at toddler height to come into direct contact with the oven.  Oven door guards fit over the glass front of an oven door and protect children from the hot temperatures should they come into contact with the door.  The Safetots oven door guard is adjustable between 40cm and 60cm.

 

INSTALL PLUG SOCKET COVERS

 

Young children can sometimes find fascination with plug sockets, poking their tiny fingers into the holes or better still squashing objects or food into the sockets.  By Fitting socket covers to unused sockets, children are kept safe and the cost of replacing a socket due to damage is avoided.  Ensure any sockets in use have leads that are safely tucked away, tied back or sealed beneath cable ties to avoid any accidents from being caught up with a cable.   

 

KEEP FIRE SAFETY EQUIPMENT CLOSE TO HAND

 

In any kitchen where gas and electric is present there is always a risk of fire breaking out.  Be prepared in the event of a fire breaking out in the kitchen by keeping a fire blanket or a fire extinguisher close to hand.  Keep a small extinguisher in an accessible area of the kitchen, in either a cupboard, under the sink or better still, fixed to a wall.  A first alert fire blanket will extinguish small fires immediately when the fire is smothered by a blanket.  The first alert multi purpose fire extinguisher will enable you to extinguish or control a small fire in the home. 

 

INSTALL A BABY GATE AT YOUR KITCHEN DOOR

 

The key to baby safety is prevention.  By installing a safety gate at your kitchen door, your child will be prevented from entering the kitchen unless supervised by an adult.  Safety gates can be pressure fitted or screw fitted and come in a range of sizes and styles to match various interiors in todays’ modern homes.  Install a baby gate to the entrance of your kitchen and take comfort in the knowledge that your child cannot enter the kitchen without you.

 

KEEP PANS AND KETTLES OUT OF REACH

 

Make sure that any hot pans in use and recently boiled kettles are out of your infants reach.  Many accidents in the kitchen occur from infants, reaching and grabbing hot pans and boiling kettles. Easy to avoid incidents with just a bit more thought.

 

KEEP WET SURFACES DRY

 

Be sure to mop up any spills from kitchen surfaces and floor tiles as quickly as possible.  A wet tiled floor surface can lead to slips and falls and dreadful injuries.

BABY PROOFING

BABY PROOFING

 

TOP TIPS FOR BABY PROOFING YOUR HOME

 

Happy New Year and welcome to 2018!  To help you keep your little ones safe throughout 2018, Safetots have come up with top tips for child proofing the home and the best time to child proof.  Thinking ahead and being prepared and proactive can prevent all kinds of incidents from happening with your crawling baby or inquisitive toddler.  Most babies begin to crawl around the age of 8 months but some are younger.  It’s a good idea to have everything in place ahead of your baby exploring the home to enable them to explore their surroundings safely.

 

So how can you baby proof your home and where do you start?

 

THE LITTLE THINGS

 

FIRST STEPS

 

From the age of 6 months your baby may be sitting up unaided or showing signs of sitting up unaided, and it won’t be long before they are frustrated with sitting still, they have found their little legs and the rest of the home becomes a whole new ‘play zone’.

 

FASTEN YOUR FURNITURE

 

Up until now your home has felt perfectly safe with no potential risks to any family members, but once your little one starts to crawl, the home can very quickly become a hazardous playground.  Take a good look around your home to see where there may be potential risks to your child. 

 

FURNITURE STRAPS

 

Be quick to fasten and secure any large items to the wall such as the TV, little ones love to pull themselves up on anything in reaching distance and fitting simple TV straps such as the Babydan anti tip TV strap can prevent the TV from toppling over.  Take a look around and identify all your heavy furniture such as wardrobes, drawers, bookshelves and any units that if potentially grabbed by tiny hands or climbed into or onto, could quickly topple and cause great harm.  Fixing furniture to the wall with furniture straps is one of the most simple, low cost yet one of the most important ways you can baby proof the home.  Furniture fastenings or furniture straps are designed to prevent infants from pulling heavy, unbalanced furniture on top of themselves.

 

PROTECT LITTLE FINGERS & FACES

 

CABLES AND PLUGS

 

Keep any cables out of reach or keep them tidy with a ‘cable tidy’ unit or wrap them up with suitable tape to prevent access.  Install plug socket covers to any open sockets, babies can be fascinated with open sockets and may find fun in poking their tiny fingers into the exposed holes or filling them with food or quite simply enjoy playing with them.  Plug socket covers are inexpensive and can be fitted quickly throughout the home, basic baby proofing equipment that can prevent endless toddler injuries or electrical problems.   

   

FURNITURE EDGE GUARDS AND CORNER GUARDS

 

Fit table corner guards and table edge guards to tables and units with sharp edges and sharp corners.  Babies are inclined to pull themselves up on tables and units and unsteady toddlers are inclined to topple and fall as they learn to walk.  Take a look around each room in your home for any furniture with sharp edges that your child may come onto contact with should they trip, stumble or fall.  If any of these furniture items are at a level that could lead to injuries particularly to your infants head or eyes, it may be wise to fit table edges and corner guards.

 

THE ULTIMATE SAFETY – LOCKS & LATCHES

 

Window & cupboard locks

 

Cupboard locks, drawer locks, kitchen locks and bathroom locks are invaluable little items that can prevent big problems.  Locks and latches for drawers and cupboards enable you to lock up any dangerous cleaning products, medicines, electrical items or sharp objects that could be harmful to infants.  Magnetic locks or adhesive locks enable you to secure your furniture without leaving any permanent damage.  Window locks enable you to have windows open without being open to a dangerous level where a child may topple out.  Window locks prevent young children from opening windows independantly and should they manage to open a window, it won’t open fully. 

 

THE BIGGER THINGS

 

STAIR GATES

 

Top on our list for keeping your toddler safe in the home are ‘Stair gates’, fitting a safety gate to the bottom and top of your stairs prevents children from climbing the stairs or falling down the stairs. Learning how to use the stairs safely takes time in the early days of crawling and toddling and it’s not always possible to be there at all times to help and ensure your child is safe around the stairs.  Installing baby gates enables your child to have freedom in the home, upstairs and downstairs without the risk of injuries from stairs.  Once a child has progressed from a cot to a bed, many parents choose to install a safety gate across their child’s bedroom door, keeping them from roaming around the house should they choose to climb out of bed unannounced.  Safety gates can be used throughout the home to create safe play zones for children to play or to prevent them from entering kitchens and bathrooms when your back is turned.  Consider fitting safety gates throughout the home when your child is showing first signs of crawling or toddling and if possible, don’t leave it until they are on the move.

 

FIRE GUARDS & RADIATOR COVERS

 

To keep young children safe around open fires, log burners and even gas fires consider installing a fire guard.  Unlike a fire screen which is a stand free guard, a fireguard is fitted around a fire and securely screw fitted in place.  A fireguard prevents children from having any contact with fire, and as they are screw fitted in place they provide the ultimate safety for children around fire.  If you have an unusual size fire place consider choosing a flex fire guardFlex guards are made up of individual panels from as small as 20cm through to 72cm in a range of sizes in-between, enabling you to connect fire panels of various sizes to make your own bespoke configuration. 

 

If you have radiators that get particularly hot, consider fitting a radiator coverFabric radiator covers enable you to cover radiators with ease without eating into the space in your room.  The dual mesh fabric is lightly padded and heat resistant preventing bumps and burns should your little one come into contact with a radiator.       

 

BANNISTER GUARDS

 

Something many new parents often overlook are the gaps between the spindles on a bannister.  Some gaps are quite large and tiny bodies with flexible soft bones are able to squeeze through.  If your little one is able to squeeze through, a fall from a height onto a wooden surface below could prove to be fatal.  Not all bannisters have wide spindles, but if you do have a young baby who is on the move, take note of your bannister railings and ensure they are safe for a baby to be near.  If in any doubt, consider fitting a bannister guard.  Bannister guards consist of a clear, unobtrusive film that encases the spindles preventing infants from putting limbs through or throwing items through.  Bannister guards and simple to fit and remove when no longer needed, leaving no lasting damage to furniture. 

 

MORE TIPS.......

 

Cut that BLIND cord

 

Childproofing the home can seem like an endless task and often when your baby starts to crawl you will suddenly find potential dangers in so many items and areas in the home once deemed perfectly safe.  Have you checked your blind cord or blind chain is fixed to the wall, OR at a height unreachable by your toddler? Make sure they are unable to climb on to near bye furniture and fall into a blind cord.  Blind cords should be cut short, out of reach and/or securely fastened to the surrounding wall.

 

KEEP THEM SAFE FROM SCALDS AND BURNS

 

Keep infants safe around hot stoves and kettles.  Ensure kettles are out of reach and there is no easy access to hot taps and hot kettles.  Install cooker guards to prevent toddlers from reaching up and pulling hot pans onto themselves.  Keep them safe from scalds and life-long scars by a cooker guard or ensure pans are placed to the back of the hob with handles out of reach.  Some ovens can get exceptionally hot and by simply fitting an oven guard, should your child come into contact with the oven surface they will be kept safe from burns.

 

Child proofing the home is all about being vigilant and attentive.  Take note of potential dangers in each room and make the necessary changes to make each room a safe haven for your child, or simple close off areas with Safetots child safety gates.

BABY RESCUE CARRIER

FIRE SAFETY IN THE HOME

Being prepared in the event of an unexpected fire breaking out in your home is key to giving you and your family the best chance of escape and survival should the worst happen.

 

During these long winter months when fires and log burners are in frequent use, candles are lit and Christmas lights switched on to create the perfect Christmas setting, the risk of a fire breaking out is greatly increased.   Arm yourself with the knowledge of what to do if a fire breaks out in the home? How to escape? How to get the children to safety? And what steps to take to give you and your family the best chance of survival.

 

Every year children of all ages start around 35,000 fires.  A fire can start quickly without warning and progress into an inferno in a matter of minutes.  Being prepared, knowing your escape routes in the home, making all family members familiar with the right steps and actions to take in the event of a fire and investing in a few ‘fire evacuation products’ could save your life and the lives of your loved ones.

 

So how can you safely evacuate your home in the event of a fire?

 

  1. NEW - Baby Rescue Carrier

The baby rescue rapid evacuation carrier, invented by a firefighter provides an easy solution for safe evacuations of infants and small children.  Designed to enable families to lower their baby up to 75lbs from up to 5 stories.  The Baby rescue gives parents peace of mind and comfort in knowing in the event of a fire they have a fast and easy way to get their babies to safety.

 

  1. Fire Escape Ladder

For families living in a two storey or three storey home, consider keeping one or more fire escape ladders in accessible locations throughout the home.  Ensure all family members know how they work and where they are kept for ease of access should a fire break out.  Fire escape ladders hook on to window sills and retract for easy and compact storage.  A fire escape ladder will carry weight up to 510kg enabling more than one family member to be on the ladder at any one time.

 

  1. Fire Alert Blanket

Ultimately if you find your clothing on fire, you may find your natural reaction is to run.  Running around encourages flames to spread and not distinguish.  A fire blanket can be used on clothing, a chip pan, waste bin, bbq, and many items in the home to quickly and safely distinguish a fire.  A fire blanket is ideal for keeping close to hand in the kitchen, near an open fire or close to the barbeque. 

 

  1. Fire Extinguisher

Small 1kg fire extinguishers are ideal for placing around the home.  Although not capable of putting out large fires, the First Alert Multi Purpose 1kg Fire Extinguiser fights small gas, oil and electrical fires, plus wood and paper.  If you do install a fire extinguisher, make sure you read the instructions for use and make yourself familiar about how to operate the extinguisher.

 

The ultimate fear of any fire breaking out in the home is being trapped and unable to escape, particularly if you are on an upper floor with young children.  Being prepared with fire escape ladders and baby rescue carriers arms you with the best chance of escape should a fire break out on an upper floor.

 

Install a smoke alarm and frequently check it’s in working order.  If a fire breaks out in your home during the night, a smoke alarm may be the first indication that you are in trouble.  For best use, install an alarm downstairs and upstairs in the home on landings and hallways.

Keep your family safe and install a few fire evacuation items throughout the home.  Visit Fire Safety websites for expert advice on the best actions to take if a fire breaks out in the home, from checking for smoke under the doors (before opening a door) to crawling as apose to walking to your escape exit to limit the inhalation of smoke.  There is a great deal of expert advice available on what to do in the event of a fire, familiarise yourself with the best course of action and educate all members of the family.

 

Safetots have a range of fire safety equipment available to purchase with next day delivery available on all items, from fire blankets and baby rescue carriers through to fire extinguishers and smoke alarms.  Providing comfort, safety and peace of mind for all the family.

HOW TO BABYPROOF YOUR STAIR RAILING

HOW TO BABYPROOF YOUR STAIR RAILING

 

Stair railings or bannisters are one of the areas of the home often overlooked when it comes to childproofing the home for a young infant.  Most parents are often aware of the potential hazards a stair case presents and are quick to install child safety gates to the bottom and top of the stairs and in doorways leading to kitchens and bathrooms yet often overlook the potential dangers of bannister railings.

 

Bannister spindles if widely spaced can be hazardous to slight, small, inquisitive children, particularly at the top of the stairs on an open landing with a sheer drop beneath.  Homes with wooden floors and stairwells provide further potential danger as should a toddler, fall, slip or trip, their landing will be less cushioned.

 

Stair railings can also quickly become a form of entertainment to children once they discover the fun of throwing toys and other objects through the gaps to see them drop to the floor below, often damaging the floor or furniture or potentially hurting a parent of sibling in passing. 

 

By following a few simple steps, Safetots can help keep your crawling baby or toddler safe around your stairs and landing in the home. 

 

 

BANNISTER GUARDS

 

Unfortunately houses are not designed with child safety in mind and as parents of young children it’s our job to ensure the stair case and landing are safe.  Each year tens of thousands of children are hurt from stair related injuries, thankfully many result in treatable bumps and bruises but other injuries are less treatable and sometimes fatal. 

 

Bannister guards are designed to keep infants safe around stair railings with wider gaps between the spindles.  Bannister guards fit across the length of the bannister covering all gaps and spindles and prevent infants from putting their arms through, throwing objects through or even squeezing their tiny bodies through.  If in any doubt about the space between your spindles being safe for your child, install a bannister guard. 

 

The KidKusion Bannister Guard is a clear plastic, simple yet strong solution to closing off the wide gaps of bannister posts along the staircase and landing.  Made from plastic the KidKusion guard is the most robust option to fabric/net alternatives which are more prone to shredding and tearing.  The KidKusion bannister guard comes complete with tie straps enabling you to secure the strong plastic sheeting to the bannister.

 

The KidKusion bannister guard further benefits from being clear and unobtrusive in the home.  The clear plastic enables you to see through to the bannister as apose to creating a solid block screen that fully covers the bannister railings.

 

Bannister guards are a safety essential for any households that have wide gaps on bannister posts.  They prevent falls and objects falling from landings to the area below.

FIRE SAFETY IN THE HOME

FIRE SAFETY IN THE HOME

 

Being prepared in the event of an unexpected fire breaking out in your home is key to giving you and your family the best chance of escape and survival should the worst happen. 

 

What do we do if a fire breaks out in the home? How do we escape? How do we get the children to safety? These are just a few of the questions that many of us mull over yet often put to the backs of our minds thinking ‘it won’t happen to us’ or ‘I’ll think about it later’ or ‘I must buy one of those escape ladders just in case’ but never seem to get round to it.

 

Every year children of all ages start around 35,000 fires.  A fire can start quickly without warning and progress into an inferno in a matter of minutes.  Being prepared, knowing your escape routes in the home, making all family members familiar with the right steps and actions to take in the event of a fire and investing in a few ‘fire evacuation products’ could save your life and the lives of your loved ones.

NIGHT LIGHTS FOR BABIES

NIGHT LIGHTS FOR BABIES

 

A night light enables many children to feel safe and secure as they drift off to sleep on darker nights.  Many children struggle with the dark and fear can often creep in once lights are ‘switched out for the day’.  A night light provides a soft, low glow in a child’s bedroom, taking away the ‘pitch black’ that can often be quite frightening for many infants.  A night light is also ideal for children who may get up in the night to go to the toilet, or for early rising toddlers who are up before the sun rises.

 

Some baby night lights such as the Little Chick London Bed Time Soother Plush Star Projector, have a built in projector that creates an instant gorgeous starry night in a baby’s bedroom, plus an integrated music box that plays baby lullabies, helping baby to drift off to sleep and sleep soundly.  These multi-functional adorable night lights are ideal for new borns through to toddlers and beyond.  They have a great life span and loved by children of all ages.

 

Other popular night lights have built in sensors, switching on automatically once the dark sets in and switching off once daylight returns.  Childrens night lights such as the Pabobo automatic sensor nightlight are simple in their design, they glow gently and enable you to check on your children without waking them up.  Suitable from birth this is a great solution to keeping infants calm and comfortable during those darker evenings.

 

If you are looking for an infant night light that rotates and enables you to focus the light in a range of directions then look no further than the Dreambaby Swivel Light Auto-Sensor.  This versatile night light rotates 360 degrees and casts a soft light anywhere in the room you require, prevents stumbles in the night and enables little ones to see where they are going should they climb out of bed in the night.  It’s neat and compact design is ideal for bedrooms, stairways and nurseries.

 

When choosing the best night light for your baby, make sure you are buying from a reputable company where products have been safety tested for use around children.  Be sure they meet todays required safety standards and particularly with electrical items ensure they have been tried and tested.

 

All Safetots night lights have been designed for use with babies and infants, all have been safety tested and meet the required safety standards.  Create a safe and soothing sleep environment for your child during these wintery, dark nights with a Safetots night light from as little as £3.45, or install a night light on your landing or stairwell to enable wandering tots to stay stafe from stumbles and trips.

Keeping toddlers safe from hot radiators

KEEPING TODDLERS SAFE FROM HOT RADIATORS

 

As Summer quickly turns to Autumn, winter looms and the cold days and evenings take over, fires are lit, the heating is switched on and child proofing the home for winter begins!  When child proofing the home it’s important to look at all areas of the house that may prove potentially hazardous to young infants.  One potential risk to children that is often overlooked is a ‘hot radiator’. Protecting children from potential burns from open fires and hot stoves by installing a fireguard seems obvious and most parents are quick to install a fireguard, less obvious and frequently overlooked are the potential bumps and burns infants may acquire should they come into contact with a boiling hot radiator.

 

Fireguards are vastly available to protect children from open fires and hot stoves and radiator covers are also readily available to enable homes to be heated and infants kept safe.  Radiator covers are no longer ugly, solid structures that take up floor space in the home, today there are various, simple, fabric radiator covers available that neatly cover radiators, take up no floor and wall space, radiate heat efficiently and keep cool to the touch.  Padded, fabric radiator covers are the best radiator covers for keeping infants safe from bumps and burns.  

 

Safetots supply white fabric radiator covers to fit radiators vertical and horizontal.  Size adjustable radiator covers that fit snug to most radiators thanks to the pull tie fastenings in a range of sizes to suit most radiators large and small.  Safetots padded radiator covers, cushion and prevent toddlers from the sharp edges and corners, the 25mm soft padding ensures any harm to infants is vastly reduced should they stumble and fall into a radiator and the heat resistant fabric prevents toddlers from burns. Fabric radiator covers enable 95% of heat to radiate a room, very little heat is lost from covering the radiator and the stretch fabric ensures they are simple to install.

 

If your baby or infant has just found their feet, take a quick look around the home, asses the radiators in the rooms they play and sleep and cover where possible to prevent and reduce risks of injury.  Fabric radiator covers are the most energy efficient radiator covers, their clean, simple design looks good and blends in almost unnoticed with the furnishings and furniture of todays’ modern home.
