Stair gates.: Make sure that drawers, furniture, and lamps cannot be tipped over. Do not place furniture (on which children may climb) near windows or on balconies. Use stair gates. Install window guards on windows above the first floor (unless this is against your local fire codes.) make sure windows are closed or have screens that cannot be pushed out. Don't underestimate your child's ability to climb.

Safety first: 18 month olds usually fall, it’s their way of learning to be individuals and becoming independent. However, it is very important to keep a close eye on them and allow them to play and experiment in safe, well controlled emvironments. Use your common sense.
