In brief: Vigilant parents

There are a lot of products for "baby proofing" the house.
Some, like stairs guards, are important in certain situations, but common sense and vigilant parents are the most important.

In brief: Yes, for a safe baby

Homes are just chock full of things from which little ones can get hurt.
Sharp corners and edges, electrical outlets and cords and devices, kitchen utensils, hair dryers, poisons - our homes are filled with potential booby traps for unsuspecting and prying little ones. You can make many things safe using basic common sense, but some things, like electrical outlets, will need some special tools.
