I’ll admit that I had never thought that I needed to baby proof our windows when we had our kids. If you are like me, we didn’t start baby proofing until our kids started rolling and pulling up on things. Then all of a sudden it became urgent to make everything baby-friendly.
It is National Safety month which means it is time to take a look at our homes with fresh eyes.
Whether it is looking to make sure all the outlets are covered to stop little fingers, checking for small magnets left out or making sure that furniture is anchored to the walls in case of little climbers tipping them over we need to walk around our homes and check for safety hazards.

Did you know that one of the top 5 hidden hazards in American homes, according to U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, are corded window coverings.
This is my niece Charlotte. Her room has curtains and plantation shutters. She had so much fun doing a little photo shoot in her room. Can you tell that her favorite color is purple. 🙂
My sister and I are also pretty crazy about our kids sleep. These curtains have blackout lining so it keeps the room nice and dark for naps. We also are fanatics about sound machines. Now our whole family are converts and use them in all bedrooms and even take them on vacation.
Windows are one place that I had no idea we needed to worry about. So I feel much more confident knowing that her windows are cordless. She and her siblings love to play in their rooms at night before bed.
Walk through your home and check for exposed or dangling cords. These can pose a strangulation hazard.
In December 2018, a new safety standard was put in place for retailers. Now, only cordless window coverings are available for purchase in-store. You have to special order window coverings with cords. This makes is even more convenient to keep your home baby-friendly.
Look for the Best for Kids™ certification label, to know that you are making the right choice in window coverings.
