It’s super fun to see Caleb rolling around, rolling across the room and getting more and more mobile.
However, that made us realize…CRAP! We’re going to have to really start thinking about all of this “baby proofing” stuff. Man, I just wish he wouldn’t do stupid things like try and stick his finger in an electrical socket…wouldn’t that just make life easier…?
At any rate – we’ve obviously never done this before. And I feel like if “baby proofing” your home is anything like any OTHER aspect of this whole raising a child…the baby industry will tell us we need this and that, and the this and that stuff tends to add up quickly.
One of the obvious things I’m wondering about is our current TV stand from IKEA. Take a look at that…and I really don’t want Caleb to pull the TV down on top of him. I’d be pissed if he did, because…let’s be honest, I really like that TV. Do any of you have specific tips in regards to TV stands, etc.? I know we could get it wall-mounted, but we’re renting and not sure our landlord would go for that.
Also – what basic tips do you have for how to baby proof your house on a small/limited budget?
