Baby-Proofing Your Home

When you have a baby, whether it is your first or fifth, nothing is more important than ensuring his or her safety. A home can be filled with many potential baby hazards, but there are a few easy safety precautions you can take to baby-proof your home:

  • Lock your window latches or window guards to prevent children from falling out of upper floor windows.
  • Ensure window coverings are safe; corded window coverings and blinds can be a strangulation hazard. The Window Covering Safety Council offers free repair kits to make corded window coverings safer.
  • Install cabinet and drawer latches to prevent children from getting into hazardous chemicals.
  • Stay up-to-date on safety recalls for all home products.

Find additional important home safety information at www.cdc.gov/safechild and kidshealth.org/parent/firstaid_safe/.

If your home does not meet your safety needs, contact the Navy Housing Service Center (HSC) for assistance. You can find Navy HSC contact information online at www.cnic.navy.mil/HousingQuickReference.
