Babies are brand new to this world, and thus tend to be curious about everything. However, their curiosity can often put them in dangerous situations.
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, one child dies every two weeks due to a TV, furniture, or an appliance falling onto them. In this potentially life-saving video from the CPSC, you”ll see some precautionary steps to take as a new parent. This includes anchoring large furniture, televisions, and appliances to avoid these terrible tragedies from happening to your family. This may seem like common sense, but you”d be surprised just how many people don”t know about the dangers of not securing their furniture.

The thought of this happening has always made me feel anxious and worried about potentially unstable furniture, especially with things on top of it. Seeing what the impact can do made me feel quite sick to my stomach. Be safe and childproof your home.
