Baby-Proof a Bathroom in New York

Bath Time can be Safe and Fun

Baby-proofing a bathroom in New York can be tricky because of the tight space normally involved. That said, here are a few tips we picked up from some of the best baby proofing experts in NYC and on Long Island.

Baby Proofing Tips for the Bathroom

The easiest child-proof tip for bathrooms is to keep the door closed, but this is not possible around the clock. Plus, eventually, they'll be able to reach the door knob anyway.

Scalding
is the number one threat to your child's safety in the bathroom. One way to prevent this is to set your water heater to 120 degrees Fahrenheit.

With a baby or young child in the house, the last thing you want is an open "pool" of water. The toilet definitely qualifies as exactly that, but you can keep the lid shut with lid locks that are both inexpensive and easy to find.

Medicine Cabinets should be stocked only with child-proof capped items and obviously need to be high up enough that they are out of a young child's reach.

As we all know, wetness on counter surfaces or on tile floors is bad enough, but having a hairdryer plugged in and unattended is a recipe for disaster. Unplug anything not in use, from blow dryers to curling and straightening irons, to electric toothbrushes and find storage for these items that is not within your child's grasp.

Non-slip rugs and mats can prevent your baby from falling in the tub or on a damp bathroom floor.
