Baby proof: Go room by room and start looking for outlets, reachable things than can break, medications, cleaning products, glass, pointy tables, stairs, loose cords, toilets, it takes times, you can get plenty of gadgets to help baby proofing on the web, or any baby store.
Dr. Jane Lande
Specializes in Pediatrics
6 months: As soon as your baby can move - around 6 months.
Dr. Anatoly Belilovsky
Pediatrics 35 years experience
0 months: The earlier the better; if you have your electric plugs, cabinet locks, stair gates, etc, in place for a while, it will be easier to figure out what you've overlooked before your child does.

What are the best ways to baby proof my house?

Pool Stairs Caustics: Gates along the bottom of stairs that are sturdy are a must. Toilet covers, door locks, and locks to drawers need to be in place. Remember the garage! everything out there is toxic! gas cans, pesticides, bug sprays, and windshield wiper fluid are all deadly to a toddler. In the home be sure and put cleaners in a high locked cabinet. I recommend removing drano from the home entirely!

How do I baby proof my house to protect my crawling baby?

Crawl!: Hit your hands and knees and look from the floor! infants have a view that you can't appreciate from 5+/- feet up. Get down on your hands and knees and crawl around. Look for sharp and rough areas. Look for what they could pull down or what they could bonk their noggins on. Look for electric - anything electric. Look for ways they can find trouble - 'cause guaranteed they will!
