HOUSTON BABY PROOFING MYTH #5

It is a good idea to give the baby a lower cabinet in the kitchen.  This way they can feel like they are helping. This is Houston baby proofing myth #5 in a series of myth busting.

We hear this a comment a lot and our philosophy is to create boundaries for your child. When you give a child a cabinet in the kitchen, they are going to pull all of the stuff out and not put it away. At a minimum, you will have to pick up the items and re-wash them if you want to use them. Worst case scenario is that now that you have trip hazards in your kitchen, you might go from stove top (HOT) to the sink to drain cooked pasta (BOILING). Disaster is about to strike!

Infant House of Houston recommends locking all cabinets below the counter top to avoid injuries, damage and the hassle factor of rewashing dishes that get baby goo and kitchen floor crud on them.

HOUSTON BABY PROOFING MYTH #4

Baby proofing is not necessary, my parents did not baby proof for me and I turned out alright. This is Houston baby proofing myth #4 in a series of myth busting.

You may have turned out alright. However, many children do not survive baby proofing injuries in the home. The facts are that the percentage of unintentional injuries in the home have remained relatively constant over the years. From 2000-2006, an estimated 9.2 million children annually had an initial emergency department visit for an unintentional injury. This is according to a cdc.gov report. These injuries lead not only to excess mortality but also to permanent and temporary disability and substantial economic costs. We can do better and Infant House is here to work with you!

Professionally installed baby safety gates therefore, at the top and bottom of the stairs greatly reduces the chance of your child falling down the stairs .

HOUSTON BABY PROOFING MYTH #3

Childproof lids are too hard for children to remove. Therefore, they are safe. This is Houston baby proofing myth #3 in a series of myth busting.

Not true.  No container is “childproof”, some are child resistant.  To be childproof the FDA requires that 80% or more children cannot remove the lids.  What about the other 20%?  That is why Infant House recommends securing all medications.

Many medications look like candy. These examples are from poison.org :

Medicine can look like candy.

Medication should be secured from toddlers using childproof lids in addition to being out of reach and or locked away. Infant House recommends locking all the drawers and doors below the counter top and storing medication in one of these locked cabinets or in a locked box. The locks we use are the best on the market. They can be turned on and off and are super strong.

Black Childproofing Safety Gate San Antonio & San Marcos Texas

Infant House childproofing experts often recommend a Black Childproofing Safety Gate San Antonio & San Marcos Texas.  When the house interior is painted with any one of the many off-white colors sometimes a professionally installed black child safety gate is the best choice to avoid a color clash.

Some parents are reluctant to have gates installed as they fear the damage to the walls caused from the screws.  Our clients are relieved to find out that our gates attach to walls with tiny screws.  The screws we use are about 1/2 the size of a pencil and the hole is easily repaired with putty and paint.  As a bonus, all of the child safety gates that we currently install are removable and it takes just seconds to take it down or put it back up as needed.

I could not be more pleased with InfantHouse! The detail in the work done is amazing. Not only is the quality of work excellent, but the punctuality and customer service is as well. We had InfantHouse come out 2 different times. The first time they did such quality work, after changes in the house and purchasing new furniture, we asked them to come out again. It was not a surprise when we were just as satisfied with the installation as the first. Go with InfantHouse!!! You will be assured your house is safe for your little ones!!!

[Infant House] returned my call quickly, was up front about pricing, was prompt, cleaned up any mess made by drilling and didn’t even break for lunch. Will call again if needed or to baby proof the in-laws house.

Jennifer H. said:

This is the second time we’ve used Infant House. They baby-proofed our last house for our first baby, then we moved and they are going to do the same service in our new home. Infant House put in gates on the staircase – top and bottom, replaced all the outlet covers with safety covers, put child-proof latches on cabinets in bathrooms and kitchen, an oven lock, slide locks on several doors, toilet locks, and new door stops, and harnessed several pieces of furniture & the [TV] to walls so they couldn’t tip onto my busy toddler.

J.V. said:

I would highly recommend Infant House for your child proofing needs. We tried doing some things ourselves and found lesser products that were not installed properly by us.
Infant House has years of experience and offers the safest, most stable products available. We compared their products to retail and found their prices to be right in line.
The consultation was informative and showed me many hazards that I had not considered. We were able to choose among a few different options in many cases. The gates are great and blend right into our staircase, without any holes in our banister.

Jennifer J. said:

[Infant House] was incredibly responsive, prompt, and courteous. [They were] knowledgeable of products, and gave me terrific recommendations. They performed the job efficiently and were very tidy too! I would definitely hire Infant House again, and would recommend them to anyone!
They installed gates at the top and bottom of staircase, secured three pieces of furniture to the walls, and provided us with a top-of-the-line ladder to use for our “escape plan” from our second story.

Gretchen D. said:

We used InfantHouse to baby proof our first condo when our daughter was born, and then again when we purchased our new home. Years later, we were surprised with twin boys, and we will be using them again to re-enforce what we already have – as well as take a look at new ways to improve and enhance the safety of our home. We love Infant House!

Brad S. MD said:

I had an excellent experience with [Infant House]. Both my wife and I are physicians and have seen so many children with injuries or even die as a result of not having a baby proofed house. We knew as our daughter turned 11 months old and started walking that we needed to do something to make our house safe for our child.
I called [Infant House] and [they were] quick to respond to all questions that I had. [They] had very knowledgeable suggestions about what to do to with our house and even pointed out dangerous things that I had not been previously aware of. I had tried to install gates myself which were flimsy and did not fit correctly. [Infant House childproofing experts] gates were strong and screwed into the studs so they would not fall over. [They were] able to come up with custom gate configurations in areas where the adjoining walls did not align with each other.

On another note, one of our gates had a piece [break] off of it. I called [Infant House] up about it and [they] quickly [were] able to come out to fix it at a time of my convenience. In 5 minutes, it was working like new!

I highly recommend Infant House childproofing experts for parents who want to have a truly baby proof house. There is nothing more important than your child’s safety. [They] did an amazing job and now I have no fear of my child getting hurt in the house.

 – Keep furniture at least 3 feet from upstairs railing – This deters children from climbing over the railing.

Use window locks – Use locks on upstairs window to prevent children from opening them and potentially falling out.

 – Lower crib mattress to lowest setting – This will delay your child from trying to climb out of the their crib and accidentally fall causing injury.

 – Remove child from crib when arm pits reach top rail or before- When the child’s arm pit can reach the top rail it is easy for them to attempt to climb out and potentially fall and get injured.
