Baby-Proof Your Life + House Before You Bring Your Bundle Home: Part Two

Once you’ve got your finances and space for baby to sleep figured out, it’s time to baby-proof the rest of your home. Consider getting a play mat for your baby to play on, which can be easily wiped down and kept as a sanitary play area. Install play mats as they will help protect your baby if they fall. Install baby gates to create a safe play area, and also consider installing a specific top of stairs gate which is the safest to use in order to protect your baby from falling down stairs in the future.

A discreet bed bumper or secure bed rail can not only be helpful for them but also helpful in giving you peace of mind that they will be safe even when you're not right there next to them during every second of bedtime.

5 Tips to Help Introduce a Dog to a Baby

* Allow your dog to get used to the sounds and smells of your new baby before introducing them up close. This convenient bassinet allows your dog to be close enough to smell your baby, but with an added barrier for baby’s safety. As sweet and gentle as your furry friend is, a new baby can be extremely stressful for a pet, and they may behave unpredictably. But with a little work, you can introduce a dog to a baby and maintain harmony in your home for everyone!
