Our LO has just started crawling and we are baby proofing the house. We have done all electrical ports and cords, working on a few other things like drawers and cupboards but we are stuck on anchoring, our tv is on a tv unit and at risk. What did you do to stop your LO’s getting to it. Also did you anchor any shelving to the wall for support?

  • We didn’t anchor ours. In fact the only baby proofing we did was the cor we covers which now that she’s 1 bub pulls off the second she sees them.

    If it’s at risk of toppling try a baracade of some sort if not wanting to anchor. A play pen works as does a coffee table or ottamons.

  • Ours was not a big risk due to size and being low dwn. Friends put a playpen fence around theirs.

  • I think it’s better making sure your home is safe for children.This could prevent a serious accident.Don’t wait until it’s too late.Last year one of my friends tv smashed on the floor by her 3 year old.

  • Can u put playpan around it or something like it?

  • We did not anchor our tv to the wall but we bought a safety anchor that attches to our entertainment unit
