Keep Toxic and Dangerous Things Locked Away
This seems like it would be a no-brainer. But the definitions of toxic and dangerous mean different things for everyone. Cleaning solutions, razors, hair products, and more can be toxic or dangerous. Bottom line: If they can't eat it or use it safely, put it away. Cabinet locks and high shelving can help keep things away from small children.
Use Faucet Extenders and Spout Protectors
Not being able to reach the faucet is one of many reasons kids might have safety issues in the bathroom. Installing a faucet extender on any sinks can help solve that issue. Hard, metal surfaces can also be unsafe. Try using spout protectors on the sink, shower, and tub to solve that issue. Some faucet extenders are actualy spout protectors, too. Therefore, depending on your faucet, you may be able to solve both issues with one device.
Have a Child-Sized Sink Installed
I previously discussed the convenience of having a child-sized bathroom sink. Safety is obviously a big part of those conveniences. It makes sense that when a kid can reach and use the sink better, less accidents are likely to happen.
Use Wall and Shower Grips
Having a handle to grab onto can help make things much easier for kids - and safer, too. Installing these safety grips in convenient locations is a good idea. Some suggestions include the shower and bathtub areas, on the wall near the toilet and sink, and anywhere else kids might to grab something for safety.
Place a Textured Safety Mat or Safety Tiles in the Tub/Shower
Rubber safety grip mats or tiles can help prevent slipping in the bathtub or shower. THese often come in fun shapes and designs that kids will love. Some parents may also opt to find designs that match the bathroom decor.
Install Toilet Lid Locks
Depending on your child's age, the ability to open the toilet may not be a good idea. Installing toilet safety locks can help keep the lid closed when it isn't being used. This prevents small children from hurting themselves with the lid or accessing the water tank.
Use Outlet Covers and Cabinet Locks
Keeping tiny hands and curious minds away from places they don't belong is very necessary when it comes to the bathroom area. Outlet covers and cabinet locks can help keep kids out of these unsafe areas.
Install a Child-Sized Safety Seat on the Toilet
If your child is old enough to use the toilet, but too small for the large toilet seat, consider placing a child-sized seat over the existing one. These are easily found at many retail stores that sell baby and children's products.
Use a Safety Stool
Safety stools are available in various shapes and sizes and can help your child reach things like the sink and toilet. This can help prevent accidents. There are stools that attach to the toilet or those that can be moved around to various areas. Choose based on your child's intended usage.
Keep Electric or Battery-Powered Appliances Out of Reach
Appliances, such as radios, electric razors, curling irons, hair dryers, and other bathroom devices should not be in easy reach of your kids. Keep them where they can't reach -- or more preferable, locked away in a cabinet they cannot access. Appliances can pose many safety risks, such as burning, electrocution, strangling, and more. Keep any of these devices out of your child's reach.
