But now that you have left it behind, you need to do everything again and fast. As a parent, you might be fast to react as our professional movers Las Vegas are fast packing for a move. But you can never be safe enough with kids, so keep reading to hopefully learn something new about baby-proofing your Spring Valley home.
What should you keep in mind about Spring Valley?
Spring Valley is a fast-growing suburb in Las Vegas. Even though it is one of the best places to live in Nevada, not many families live here. Our movers Spring Valley NV are usually busy moving young professionals in this area, but that doesn’t mean that families cannot enjoy it too. Since it is a densely populated suburb, not many people have access to a backyard. This makes baby-proofing your Spring Valley home mandatory since you will spend the majority of your time indoors. It would be best if you also did it fast, on top of all the tasks that you need to complete. To keep your baby safe, you need to:
- Get on your baby’s level
- Cover every sharp corner and outlet
- Bar the stairs
Get on your baby’s level before you start baby-proofing your Spring Valley home
Babies are curious creatures. Their curiosity knows no limits. But instead of denying them the satisfaction of exploration, you should make the whole home a baby-safe space. While you can get on their level, you also need to think as they do. They will reach for everything that is not a toy, and what they have never seen or touched before. Since everything will be in boxes or around the floor after moving with some local movers in Las Vegas, you need to get all potentially dangerous items out of the way.
Cover sharp corners
No matter how many corners you cover, babies will always manage to hurt themselves on the uncovered ones. For that reason, you need to cover all corners that are at your baby’s height. This is especially important if your baby recently started walking, and they are still in the wobbly walking phase.
Stairs are a potentially significant danger for babies and young kids, and they need to be barred ASAP. While it might be more logical to bar the top side first, you need to do both, to prevent unwanted trips upstairs. If you cannot get a baby gate right away, you can even use packed boxes to close the passage and prevent serious injuries. You will also be able to focus on tasks better, knowing that the stairs are off-limits to your kids.
You can dedicate time to baby-proofing your Spring Valley home if you have moving helpers
Your child’s safety is a top priority but hiring relocation services Las Vegas should also be one. This way, you as a caregiver, will do what you are supposed to, while movers will do their job. We wish you good luck and plenty of patience while getting used to a new home!
