A: One in four children experience an injury in the home requiring medical attention. Two-thirds of all injuries requiring emergency room visits occur in the home. A few safeguards and some parent education could prevent many of these injuries. (Source: National Safe Kids Campaign)
Q: Why should I use Baby Bodyguards?
A: Baby Bodyguards has safeguarded over one thousand homes. We provide professional baby proofing using products which will be the best fit for you home. We do all this at about the price it would cost you to do on your own! We’re also the only professional baby proofing service based in New York City. While we often service the Hamptons, Long Island and New Jersey our expertise with NYC homes really sets us apart. We specialize in baby proofing brownstone townhouses, modern condos and pre-war buildings.
Q: When should I start baby proofing my home?
A: The best time to begin baby proofing is before your child starts crawling. Your home is where your children will spend most of their time playing, learning and exploring. It is important to make sure their surroundings encourage, not discourage this growth. Turning your home into a safe environment will allow your child to explore, while giving you more peace of mind.
Q: How do I get started baby proofing my home?
A: Contact us and we will perform our expert safety consultation, an extensive room-by-room walk through of the entire house where we identify potential hazards that could injure your child, and recommend helpful solutions or products. We can then install these products and take care of any hazards that are present.
Q: Do you sell gift certificates?
A: Absolutely! A Baby Bodyguards gift certificate makes a unique and thoughtful shower gift for the new parents to be.
Q: How much does it cost to baby proof a home?
A: The cost of baby proofing generally depends on the size of your home, your lifestyle, and the products needed to ensure your child’s safety. At Baby Bodyguards, we will work within your budget to help you choose the most cost effective way to make your home as safe as possible for your child.
Q: I received some safety products as a shower gift, will Baby Bodyguards install these for me?
A: It depends on the manufacturer and quality of the products. As you probably know by now, not all “baby products” are made the same! Some are of much higher quality than others. We will only install those products that meet our strict safety standards.
Q: I’m pretty handy with power tools, can I buy your safety products and install them myself?
A: Of course! We can install as much or as little as you would like! We can install all of the products, some of the products, or provide you with the instructions to install them yourself!
