Ray White Carnegie’s Matt Hurlston: Tips for childproofing your home

By Matt Hurlston

If you're expecting your own little bundle of joy in the near future, no doubt you're buzzing from the impending changes to your life. One thing that should be taken care of in your Oakleigh real estate is to make it as safe as possible for your child when they arrive.

Some of the things you could consider include putting up stair​ guards at the top and bottom of your staircase in order to prevent any accidents from occurring as the young one begins to move around of their own accord. 

Furthermore, keep an eye out for exposed electrical sockets. These can pose a real hazard to inquisitive minds, so taking the time to either block them with furniture or fill them in with socket protectors should be a top priority in your home. 

Finally, check the status of your home's first aid kit. Small injuries are bound to happen, but being proactive about taking care of these is an essential part of being a parent.
