I can still remember back to my first child and when the crawling stage happened...my son WAS NOT a calm, relaxed, sit back and look around baby! In fact, he got into everything by four months old when he started crawling - knocking down lamps, hitting his head on sharp corners and pulling things off shelves! I very quickly learned to baby proof my house and prevent my son from injuries!
I am now onto my third child due in July and I am still baby proofing and learning about dangers around the house! The latest one that scares me is flat screen TV's! Due to increasing sizes and new ultra thin designs, today’s flat panel TVs can tip when bumped or pulled, causing them to topple off furniture, potentially causing injury or even death. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics study, more than 17,000 children – one every 30 minutes – are treated in emergency rooms across the country for TV related injuries every year. By following tips from celebrity interior designer Genevieve Gorder, and SANUS®, the #1 best selling TV mount brand in the United States, baby proofing can be a breeze.
Genevieve Gorder’s Baby Proofing Tips:
o Little ones love to crawl, climb and explore; mount your TV to capitalize on square footage as this will instantly add a more open look to any room and ensure safety by putting this appealing device out of little arms’ length
o Ideal for any interior design layout, SANUS® offers a complete line of TV wall mounts including full motion, tilting and fixed position
o While surrounding furnishings are sure to add elegance to the space, clutter is never a good look; amend complexities so the viewer is not distracted when watching TV and your baby is not met with obstacles, etc.
o Avoid placing remote controls or other items in places where little ones might be enticed to climb up or reach for them
Bye, Bye Furniture
o By placing your Roku, BluRay and cable box on a shelf on the wall or behind a mounted TV you eliminate the need for furniture altogether – which means more useful square footage, and the elimination of your makeshift, indoor jungle gym
“Dress Up” Your AV Accessories
o Find essential accessories for your AV system and its surrounding décor, such as the SANUS® cable tunnels to hide TV and power cords, at www.SANUS.com; this way choking hazards stay concealed and everything is perfectly accessorized and styled safely
