70+ Baby Safety Resources:

If you’re in search of valuable resources to ensure the safety of your baby, including DIY guides, step-by-step childproofing tips, local childproofing contacts, and useful safety freebies, our website, along with other related sites, is the ultimate solution to meet all your needs.

We started Safer For Baby out of fear for our little ones. Cases of baby monitors getting hacked and perverts harassing kids over the baby cam frightened us to the core and we had to do something. We’ve been building resources, one guide at a time and luckily other safety-conscious parents have also worked on other areas touching on baby safety.

Here is a list of some of the websites I’ve found useful myself but I welcome suggestions:

A resourceful website with tips on how to securely anchor furniture and TVs to prevent tipping accidents. This is a must-visit for parents of toddlers who are constantly exploring their surroundings.

Below are some guides you may find useful on this site:
