A bathroom is a place of carefree play for your young tot(s), but having children be in such a wet space (often with tile) can be incredibly anxiety-producing for adults trying to ensure the safety of their children! Luckily, there are a few tried and true ways to make your bathroom a safe space for your child. You just need to put the effort in!
Follow the steps below to be sure that your bathroom is safe for the little ones in your life!
Install a lock on the door. If your bathroom doesn’t already have a lock that locks from the outside, it might be time to start thinking about investing in one. Children love to wander, and minimizing the risk that your child might run into the bathroom unattended is a great way to start.
Get a toilet paper holder. We all know that kids love to unravel toilet paper and make a big mess, much to the annoyance of their parents. Ensure that your toilet paper stays in its proper place, nice and tucked away from any potential slipping hazards, by getting a toilet paper holder!
Place a non-slip mat on your tub floor. To ensure that your child doesn’t slip and hurt themselves while they’re in the tub, be sure to purchase a non-slip mat! You will want to make sure regularly that your non-slip mat hasn’t developed mold or mildew spots, however.
Protect your child’s head with a spout cover. Kids can easily hurt themselves by bumping their hands against the bathroom faucet. Ensure their safety by placing a spout cover over the bathroom faucet!
Never leave hair styling equipment turned on and unattended. If you often style your hair with heated appliances, make sure to never leave them unattended. These can be a serious burn hazard for your little one!
