HOUSTON BABY PROOFING MYTH #1

“This dresser to too heavy to tip over.” This is Houston baby proofing myth #1 in a series of myth busting.

When you open all of the drawers on a dresser, this is not recommended by the way, the center of gravity shifts to the front of the furniture. At this point, when a toddler pulls or tries to climb into one of the drawers, the furniture can easily tip over.

Here is the result:

HOUSTON BABY PROOFING MYTH #1, BUSTED!

According to Anchor It , about every 43 minutes a child in the U.S. is injured from a TV or furniture tip-over incident. Properly mounting or anchoring a TV can prevent these tragic incidents.

When you choose Infant House of Houston, we will address furniture restraints in your home. We recommend installing furniture restraints for all furniture that is 3 or more drawers tall, bookcases, grandfather clocks and other unstable furniture. Also, secure TVs on top of furniture using straps. Here is a picture of the professional grade furniture straps that we use currently.
