Why should I baby
proof my home?

Children, especially under age four, are most likely to be injured by falls, poisonings, choking, drowning, and burns. Each year, more than two million children age four and under are treated in hospital emergency rooms for injuries incurred in the home (National Safe Kids Campaign). Your home is where your children will spend most of their time playing and exploring. It is important to make sure their environment is safe.



When should I
start baby proofing
my home?

The best time to begin baby proofing is before your child starts crawling—but even if your baby is already crawling, it’s not too late. It’s important to make sure your baby’s surroundings encourage growth and allow him/her to explore safely. Baby proofing is an on-going process and can be done in phases.



I always watch my baby. Do I need to baby proof?

YES! Child proofing your home is not a substitute for adult supervision or educating young ones about safety. Likewise, infants learn about their environments through taste and feel, and quickly develop motor skills that lead to independence and exploration. Baby proofing will provide a safer environment for your child to explore, play, and grow.


How do I start baby proofing my house?

The first thing to do is to get down on the floor and crawl around. This will help you get an idea of what your child sees at his/her level. Then, contact Baby Proofing Montgomery. We perform an extensive room-by-room evaluation of your home, recommend helpful solutions and products, and provide an estimate with the recommended products and their costs, as well as the associated labor fees.

Why should I hire
Baby Proofing Montgomery?

We take the guesswork out of choosing the best safety products for your home because we have in-depth knowledge of childproofing, as well as access to many products that you won’t find online or in stores. We also provide safety awareness information covering topics such as poison prevention, fire and electrical safety, drowning, entrapment, strangulation, and burn prevention, and more. The more you know, the safer your little ones will be.

Do you provide installation services?

YES! We offer professional and convenient installation services. Once installed, we show you how to operate each product, so that you can keep your home safe at all times.

How long do I need
to have my home baby proofed?

Baby proofing is an on-going process. As your child grows, you’ll need to re-evaluate the precautions you have taken and decide if they are still adequate. We recommend that you continually reassess your child’s surroundings as they grow and develop. Get down on the floor and take a look at things from your child’s viewpoint every so often. This is an eye-opening experience!

I have some safety products. Will you install them for me?

It depends on the products. We know which products work, which do not, and why. We only install products that we normally sell and meet our standards for quality and safety.

How much does it
cost to baby proof
a home?

The cost of baby proofing generally depends on the size of your home, your lifestyle, and the products you decide you need–how many gates and cabinet latches, for example, and where you spend the most time with your baby in your home. We work within your budget to help you choose the best way to make your home safer. Some parents also choose to baby proof in stages.

Can’t I find the
same safety
in stores?

Probably not. Most stores only carry two or three different brands of safety products and their staffs don’t know how to select and install the products. We carry products from a variety of manufacturers, which allows us to select the most appropriate products for your home.

Can’t I find the
same safety
products online?

Many parents come to us after they have invested a lot of time and money into trying to baby proof on their own. There are so many products on the market that it’s challenging for parents to identify the most appropriate safety products for their home. Baby Proofing Montgomery knows what products work best for your situation—and we’re experienced at installing them. We also take extra measures to keep your home visually appealing.
