If something tastes bad, such as moth balls or detergent gel packs, babies won’t eat it. This is Austin baby proofing myth #2 in a series of myth busting.

Babies eat poisonous products that don’t taste good because their taste buds are not fully developed. This is why parents have to be ”on duty” as their toddler explores their world.

Infant House recommends installing locks on all cabinets and drawers below the counter top so they don’t open at all. This will help prevent accidental poisonings, pinched fingers and damaged possessions. Also, it will limit the number of times a parent has to say ”No”.

Infant House also recommends installing door latches on rooms that are ”off limits”. This makes it safer for the toddler, less expensive to baby proof the home. And finally, it is easier for mom and dad to keep up with the super speedy toddler.
