Baby Safety Month With Safety 1st – Home Safety Bundle Giveaway

September is Baby Safety Month and I am so excited to an ounce my partnership with Safety 1st  as a brand ambassador for the company. With Mia now entering toddlerhood we’ve been busy making sure our home is safe and secure. Having stairs in our home it is very important that we have baby gates that are easy to install and easy to use. Safety 1st  is one of those brands that I can always count on for quality, safety and price. Plus so many of their new products fit into the style and actual use of our home.

There are a few products I would recommend for any family who is starting to baby proof their home.

Baby Proofing Around The Home

    • Baby Gates : Easy-Fit® Security Gate – The Safety 1st plastic, pressure mounted high gate is easy to assemble. It has a one handed lock and release handle that is convenient for parents to unlock and relock. It expands wide so as to accommodate different size door openings
    • Décor – Grip ‘n Go Cabinet Lock – The Safety 1st  cabinet locks come in packs of two. The new décor locks also have a sleeker look to match any modern kitchen. Easy to install and keeps kiddos out of cabinets.
    • Cord Short’ner– Use the Safety 1st Cord Shortner to help keep dangling power cords out of your child’s reach.
      • Stores up to 4′ (122 cm) of excess cord

    •  Double-Touch Plug ‘N Outlet Covers – Ideal for outlets your family uses frequently, these Plug ‘N Outlet Covers by Safety 1st are easy to operate on a daily basis and require no hardware installation. Plus they are child resistant!
    • Safety 1st Secure Mount Deadbolt Lock – This easy to install lock requires no adhesives or drilling and leaves no marring on the door after removal. The simple installation takes just 3-steps, making it easy for parents to prevent children from opening doors with deadbolt locks.

    I make sure that all of our outlets are baby proof and check them every week to make sure they are still secure. I also make sure all of our cabinet baby latches are secure.

  2. Brittney House on September 24, 2013 at 7:16 pm

    We use the gates most often because we have a lot of stairs in our house.

  3. Rebecca Lock on September 24, 2013 at 6:46 pm

    Baby gates are wonderful. They can be used to prevent little ones from getting near a fireplace, sharp corners, Christmas tree, hot oven, stairs, and so much more.

  4. Deb S on September 24, 2013 at 2:58 pm

    there are so many things but locking cabinets is important.

  5. Ben G on September 24, 2013 at 8:21 am

    Outlet covers and cabinet locks! The baby gates are great!

  6. Wanda Bergman on September 24, 2013 at 7:06 am

    Use plastic plugs for outlets. They are the most useful product I know.

  7. Jill Myrick on September 23, 2013 at 11:48 am

    The two products that we have purchased so far are the plugs for the outlets and corner protectors. The corner protectors are great. they are rubberized and fit over sharp edges in your home.


  8. Stacey B on September 23, 2013 at 6:56 am

    Cabinet locks are a must! I’ve never encountered a little kid that doesn’t go straight for the cabinets when given the chance!

  9. Christina Strapp on September 23, 2013 at 1:33 am

    I love the cabinet locks that are magnetic. They work really well and helps keep my daughter out of stuff.

  10. Vera P. on September 22, 2013 at 7:02 pm

    I like safety gates.

  11. Cheryl F. on September 21, 2013 at 11:56 pm

    I find security gates and monitors to be most helpful.

  12. Nicole-Lynn on September 19, 2013 at 12:03 pm

    I think it’s important to cover any electrical outlets and to keep sharp furniture protected like corners of coffee tables, etc. I’m expecting my first baby this fall, thanks for the opportunity!


  13. Eileen Richter on September 19, 2013 at 2:30 am

    WAYYYy back when I was a new mommy and doing babyproofing, I got down on my knees and followed my crawler and toddlers around to see how THEY saw the world. How many MORE dangers you can see from that vantage point. For me I found register grills the could cut tender little fingers when they got caught in them. Tiny little toes that might fit under the smallest opening under a door, that you would never think could happen because our toes could never fit there. Or just finding things JUST poking under a couch, like something simple like a peanut that had been dropped unknowingly. Besides keeping electrical cords safe, and drapery or blinds at bay, we found that heavy furniture or even a computer or tv could be tipped or scooted easily…thinking our kids could NEVER be strong enough…but they were.

    New items to keep kids safe is so important, but as a parent the most IMPORTANT item of safety is your eyes, ears, nose, etc…keep watch and use your senses and good SENSe to keep them safe.

    Start early and get down to their level

  15. rebecca norton on September 16, 2013 at 2:32 pm

    i have a lot of out lets in my kitchen so we used a ton of those and we used safty 1st cabinet lookers as well

  16. Rebecca Parsons on September 16, 2013 at 12:26 pm

    I think a baby gate is one of the greatest inventions. I will have a crawler soon and need to get one.

  17. maria c on September 15, 2013 at 4:46 pm

    I think that safety Gates are a must have.

  18. Linda Meyers-Gabbard on September 12, 2013 at 3:05 am

    Cabinet locks and safty gates are useful.

  19. Stephanie Larison on September 10, 2013 at 11:54 pm

    The door knob lock covers are a must have!

  20. JLin on September 10, 2013 at 8:50 pm

    Security Gate

  21. Carol on September 10, 2013 at 3:43 pm

    We use baby gates and the plug in outlets

  22. Sandra on September 10, 2013 at 1:12 pm

    I find the electric cover outlets and cabinet locks most useful

  23. Natalie U on September 8, 2013 at 3:40 pm

    We had to get a door chain latch and place it real high so the kids couldn’t walk out the front door, they did it once, and we installed right away

  24. Kristie on September 7, 2013 at 2:45 pm

    We only put the soft, unbreakable ornaments on the bottom of the Christmas tree. 🙂

  25. Jammie on September 6, 2013 at 3:21 pm

    Our kid was a mess when she was younger it didn’t matter what we did she found away around it, on it, or in it! One thing is keep things up HIGH.

  26. Melissa M on September 5, 2013 at 8:55 pm

    When they can get the door knob covers off use duct tape!

  27. Dawn Monroe on September 5, 2013 at 7:31 pm

    My favorite baby safety product is the gate. That has been a life saver in my home.

  28. claire on September 5, 2013 at 6:48 pm

    We have these – http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B005ZNCGKY/ref=mp_s_a_1_5?qid=1378432033&sr=8-5&pi=AC_SX110_SY165 – and they have saved my son’s fingers so many times!

  29. Ashley C on September 5, 2013 at 6:41 pm

    We use doorknob covers so my kids stay out of certain rooms – they glow in the dark too!

  30. Brandy W. on September 5, 2013 at 5:45 pm

    Covering the electrical outlets and putting the doorknob covers on so the little ones stay in the room are my go-to items!

  31. Jessica w on September 5, 2013 at 5:27 am

    Outlet covers

  32. Patricia Wojnar Crowley on September 4, 2013 at 6:59 pm

    I think it’s important to cover the outlets. I keep it simpe with the little plastic plug covers.

  33. Jennifer T. on September 4, 2013 at 2:19 pm

    I think those spinner doorknob covers are helpful. My tip is to secure TVs and furniture with anti-tip brackets.

  34. latanya on September 4, 2013 at 12:38 pm

    We use baby gates and the plug in outlets

  35. Monique Rizzo on September 4, 2013 at 11:55 am

    I love the bumpers for corners of tables etc… they saved my kiddo many times.
    Thanks for the chance.

  36. Cynthia R on September 4, 2013 at 6:04 am

    i think cabinet locks are the most useful, don’t want them getting into cleaners and soaps and stuff. thank you!

  37. Blessie Nelson on September 4, 2013 at 1:29 am

    We went to IKEA and get outlet covers and corner guards for our baby.

  38. Olivia Rubin on September 3, 2013 at 11:25 pm

    An easy to use, durable baby gate. Furniture anchors for tall narrow bookshelf to prevent tipping

  39. Amanda A on September 3, 2013 at 7:41 pm

    love our baby gates!!!

  40. Tamar on September 3, 2013 at 6:52 pm

    I usually put things out of arm’s reach but I also exercise a lot of “NO”s

  41. christine jessamine on September 3, 2013 at 6:48 pm

    I use cabinet locks, outlet covers, the ones I have found the most usefull with my daughter is corner covers on the sharp furniture
