In nesting mode? Along with painting the nursery and organizing baby clothes, it’s important to prioritize safety throughout your home.

Here are three baby-proofing tips to keep in mind:

  • Make sure outlets are covered and cords are inaccessible.
  • Use back burners on the stove to cook, so little fingers won’t touch hot burners.
  • Use safety gates to block access to stairs and rooms to keep babies within eyesight.
