With baby’s increasing mobility, safety becomes even more important. It’s time for you to create a safe environment in which your baby can satisfy their curiosity and need to move. As your baby is now mobile on the floor, get down on the floor yourself and see what your baby sees – you’ll often find loose objects that they could put into their mouth. You may also consider doing a First Aid course designed for parents of young children.
Buy soft plastic corner protectors to put on any sharp corners on furniture.
