Now that Xavier has mastered the art of walking and running he is working on jumping and climbing. The jumping so far I am not too worried about. However, the climbing always makes a mom nervous. It is hard to think of all the things he can get in or on top of, or even use as a stair to get up higher.
Children under the age of five years old are at risk for injury due to furniture falling on them. As crazy as it sounds the furniture and televisions we buy today are made sleek and lightweight so they can easily fall on children who climb on or near them. Televisions are falling on children all over the place due to not latching them properly. At the tender age of two your child can open and climb drawers and dressers; which are not as heavy duty wood as they used to be they topple over easily. Try out your furniture for yourself you will see how easy it tips and you may consider getting some furniture anchors. I would highly recommend any one with children or even who takes care of young children that they get some anchors for their furniture.
We had already anchored our television when we did the first child proofing, but now that Xavier is getting around and into things more I wanted to make sure some of our other things were secure. My main concern was Xavier's dresser. He now can open all the drawers and even puts his clothes away in them. However it is so lightweight it would fall the minute he tried to climb it. We decided to try out the Dreambaby
