Baby Proofing Your Home
Beyond the usual danger zones for babies, find out hazards even paranoid moms forget when childproofing their homes

Some models can lock automatically, suffocating a child who might have climbed inside. One manufacturer, Lane, will provide a new lock for free for models made prior to 1987; call 888- 856-8758 for more details. Old-fashioned toy boxes may also entrap a child who climbs or falls into one and then isn’t strong enough or able to lift the lid.
