Planning on having a baby? Mothers have a lot to content with. Babies are cute, loveable, and tiny forces of destruction. They pull on furniture to support themselves as they start moving around, they put any and all objects in their mouths, and they will get into just about anything if they can.
Unless you take protection measures, your little one can harm either themselves or their surroundings.
You’ll want to maintain some areas of the home as being completely baby-free. Sometimes that’s to protect your sanity and have a getaway spot when a moment of quiet is needed. Sometimes keeping a baby out of a particular area is much easier than trying to babyproof the space.
Will the baby really be in the laundry room or the garage on a regular basis? Probably not. Identify areas or “zones” within the house that you anticipate having the baby in on a frequent basis and focus your babyproofing energy there.
