Options for baby-proofing your home

Whether you’re expecting a child or just hosting a friend or family member’s little one, it’s important to make sure your space will be safe for everyone.

The dishwasher detergent in the kitchen? Hazard. Even that semi-wobbly entertainment stand that you put together yourself could be a potential danger. 

To help keep everyone safe and happy, consider baby-proofing your home with one of these five options.
