childproofing on the go

  1. Do a childproofing check upon arrival anywhere your child will sleep overnight and move breakable or dangerous objects out of reach.
  2. At friends’ houses who have older children, watch out for older toys that may not be safe or may have small parts.
  3. When staying elsewhere overnight, be sure any borrowed cribs meet safety standards. It might be worth bringing your own portable crib.
  4. You might stock up on extra outlet covers for trips to hotels or for the room your child will be staying in when visiting friends or family.
  5. When visiting older relatives, beware of medications within reach.
