If you have not child-proof your home yet, now is most certainly the last time to do so because the little explorers cannot resist the temptation to reach whatever catches their eye even if it means climbing your bookcase. And since they tend to explore things with their mouth, be sure to remove all potentially dangerous items such as cleaning agents in your kitchen cabinet out of your child’s reach (and sight).
