Ways to childproof the home

There are many ways to prevent your home and keep your child safe.  You can do this by removing furniture with sharp edges out of the room until the chils is old enough.  You can also bolt heavy furniture that is likely to fall to the wall so your child does not get caught underneath.  To prevent your child from falling you can place no slip mats under rugs and also place no slip mats in the bathtub.  Some other ways are baby gates, door knob covers and cabinet locks.
