27 Baby-Proofing Items Every House Needs ASAP
Floor Register Covers
If you live in a dwelling with floor vents of any kind, for air conditioning or heating, it won’t take long for a curious toddler to discover them. And, if they’re not attached to the floor, before you know it your child will be pulling the register cover up all the time. Throwing toys into it? Possibly. Trying to climb in? Who knows?!? A parent’s best bet is to secure the registers in some way. Screw them into the floor. Get a cover that either goes on the outside or the inside, so nothing can be stuffed inside. Put furniture over it. Just make sure you do something to keep curious hands away.
