It’s best to tackle baby proofing in phases and it will help from both the overwhelming standpoint and the budget standpoint. So I would say first start with the crib and make sure that everything is up to JPMA standards and that that sleep area is completely safe for your newborn. Second, go to the family area – family room, great room – wherever it is that you’re going to be spending time as a family and playing together and make sure that that room is baby safe. And then third, the car is really the third environment where your child is really going to be spending the most time. Make sure that the car seat is the appropriate car seat for your child’s age, height and weight.
