I thought by the time our son was two that we’d be done with baby proofing, or at least have set ways of keeping him safe, but as he’s grown he’s only become more and more curious. We’ve had to seriously up our baby proofing game!
Since he was just learning to crawl, we’ve had the traditional outlet covers that you pull in and out as needed, but I have two major complaints with them. Firstly, if a cover gets pulled out, it is immediately a choking hazard, and little hands find them in the blink of an eye. Secondly, you have to remember to put the cover back in when you’re done with the outlet. I know this sounds SUPER simple, but when you’re exhausted, in a hurry, and chasing around a toddler, these things can (and do) happen.
Another bump we recently ran into was needing to use an outlet in our son’s room that we couldn’t find a way to cover. This meant that if he ever unplugged the cord, he’d have direct access to the socket. Not want you want.
For this reason, Safety Baby’s Self-Closing Outlets could not have arrived at a better time!
They’re absolutely amazing! Now, if our inquisitive toddler decides to unplug something the outlet immediately closes and reduces a ton of danger to our little man! They were easy to install, fitting snugly in the place of the old cover, and they are very easy to use. They’re the perfect balance between simple for adults and blissfully frustrating for toddlers.
If you’re unhappy with your outlet covers, I highly recommend checking Safety Baby’s Self-Closing Outlets out on Amazon. You won’t be sorry you did!
