Child-proof your house so that your kid can ex­plore her world freely and safely.

Young Parents (Singapore) - - 3M SPECIAL -

From the time your child learns to crawl, she will start to ex­plore the world around her as she is cu­ri­ous of every­thing. The house be­comes a play­ground that she can ex­plore and where she can make new dis­cov­er­ies. As par­ents, it can be hard to keep up with your kid as she clam­bers onto chairs, runs in and out of rooms, and ex­am­ines ev­ery house­hold item.

All this play stim­u­lates your child’s imag­i­na­tion and en­cour­ages her cre­ativ­ity. But be­fore you let her run around freely, make sure the key ar­eas in the house are safe. Ad­e­quate child-proof­ing will help min­imise your tot’s risk of hurt­ing her­self.

This way, you, too, can have greater peace of mind know­ing that your child’s safety is well taken care of.

LIV­ING ROOM

Sharp edges and cor­ners of chairs and low ta­bles, as well as cab­i­nets with door pan­els can cut or chafe. Low-level elec­tri­cal ap­pli­ances can cause elec­tric shock or, pos­si­bly, elec­tro­cu­tion.

KITCHEN

Open cab­i­nets and doors may lead to bumps and knocks, while sharp edges and cor­ners may cause scrapes. Heavy re­frig­er­a­tor doors can in­jure if opened with force.

BATH­ROOM

Bath­tubs and sinks have hard cor­ners and edges that may cause bruises, while wet floors or tubs can be dan­ger­ously slip­pery.

All 3M prod­ucts are tested and in­ter­na­tion­ally cer­ti­fied by SGS, an in­ter­na­tional in­spec­tion and cer­ti­fi­ca­tion com­pany, which means that the range of prod­ucts is non­toxic, BPA-free and free from 19 heavy met­als.
