In part two of Childproofing Your Home, Robin Wilcox from Safe Kids Worldwide goes through a checklist of safety measures to ensure your nursery it up to par. She recommends measuring bumper strings, checking the mattress and installing window guards if you are above the first floor. Also, keep nightlights away from blankets and have a carbon monoxide detector in or near the room. Memorize the number to the Poison Control Center and if you have any questions visit www.safekids.org.
