Health Tip: Childproof Your Home

To keep little ones safe

(HealthDay News) -- Taking a few precautions to childproof your home can help your curious little ones stay safe.

The University of Michigan Health System makes these suggestions:

  • Make sure that all blind cords are out of a child's reach.
  • Make sure that your child never has access to plastic bags or coverings; use only modern baby gates, to prevent serious injury.
  • Make sure that children cannot become trapped inside refrigerators, freezers, dryers or other large appliances or devices.
  • Guard against TV and furniture tipovers.
  • Keep children away from home exercise equipment and reclining chairs.
