Exploring is what your little one does best and as soon as they find their crawling skills, which can be as early as 3-6 months, it's time to start thinking about safety proofing your home. Otherwise you can wave goodbye to things being where you left them as little hands get hold of items previously out of reach!

Now is the time to take a good look at your house through the eyes of a toddler and assess where the danger zones are. Your moving baby will find mischief in areas that you would never expect, so put yourself in their cruisers and get set to baby proof that home!

Stairs: To your toddler – this is the best playroom in the house! The joy of exploring and climbing up your stairs will soon be diffused if they tumble from top to bottom. A huge range of stair gates are available to keep stairs strictly off limits. Gates should be fitted to the top and bottom of stairs to keep your little one safely behind bars! Stair gates are also a great option for open doorways leading onto landings, kitchens or large open hallways.  To give your home the royal treatment, the premium Lindam NUMI Extending Aluminium Safety Gate (RRP £79.99) is both stylish and conforms to the highest safety standards...

Doors:  Opening, closing, swinging, banging…a door provides a wealth of delights for little hands. Door stoppers can protect those busy fingers from traps and squashes by either stopping the door from moving, or stopping the door before it makes contact with the frame.

Corners: If your toddler is cruising and pulling up on units and tables, the corners can be a disaster area for bumped heads and sore eyes. Corner cushions are designed to soften the blow and reduce the need for cuddles and cold compresses!

Cupboards/drawers: Items in cupboards offer endless delight for curious toddlers. Give yourself sanity and protect hands from hidden dangers by fitting safety latches which prevent doors and drawers from opening. Peace of mind for all!

Appliances: It may be a familiar sight to see toys floating around in your washing machine drum! However, the serious element of toddlers climbing into appliances cannot be ignored. A simple latch can be fitted onto the door of most appliances to keep it safely shut.

Sockets: Those little holes are perfect for little fingers…so take the temptation out by using socket covers to block the temptation and reduce the risk of unwanted, and dangerous shocks.
