A Must Have
Dressers and large pieces of furniture, especially those with drawers on the bottom pose a serious risk as children can easily open the drawers to use as steps to reach items on top of the dresser or on higher shelves. The open drawers and weight of a child stepping on them make the furniture unstable increasing the chance of it tipping over. Toddlers and small children are no match for the weight and force of a large piece of furniture tipping over which can result in serious injuries that are sometimes fatal. In the US alone, someone is injured every 15 minutes from a tipping piece of furniture.
Did you know that every 23 minutes a child is treated at an emergency room for injuries sustained from tipping televisions and furniture; some injuries are fatal bringing devastation to a family. According to Health Canada, more than 70% of injuries caused by tipping televisions and furniture happened to children between 1 and 3 years of age. In the US, on average, a child dies every 2 weeks when a television or piece of furniture falls on them.
These are horrifying statistics and can be prevented with a little knowledge and taking a few moments to secure televisions and furniture. There is never a substitute for supervising your children, but we both know how quick toddlers can get into mischief.
It is strongly recommended not only securing your child’s dresser and larger heavier pieces in your home, but dressers in all bedrooms. Remember, your toddler has no boundaries when it comes to quickly exploring around the house; adventure is now their middle name. The KidCo Anti-Tip Furniture Straps install quickly and include installation hardware. There are two straps per package which is recommended for heavier pieces. These products can truly be a life saver.
Any home where your child will be spending a lot of time should be evaluated and childproofed. Learning to be a parent while being a parent is a monumental responsibility to say the least. You love them, teach them right from wrong, and sit back and watch their little personalities develop bringing unending joy to your heart. So take a few moments and ensure their safety.
