Give away glass tables. As soon as your babies / child can cruise around holding on to the furniture, it’s time to get rid of your glass tables. If your children doesn’t damage themselves on the edges, sooner or later, they will have a go at jumping on them.
Have enough side tables so that hot cups and fragile glasses aren’t put down on the floor, and these tables out of reach of little ones.
Mask sharp corners with corner guards or improvised solutions, such as Blu Tack covered with masking tape or if edges need to be covered temporarily a pillows or a cushion would do.
Use socket covers. A cheap safety essential for every home with young children, they look like thin platting plugs and cover sockets completely, making them impenetrable for playing fingers.
Keep flexes well out of reach, particularly the flex for the kettle, and site the kettle itself as far as back possible from the edge of the kitchen surface.
Give them a toy camera to snap some photos, some research shows that earlier age is the time they pick up their creativity. Maybe one day your kids may turn into a famous photographer??
