“Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body” (Elizabeth Stone)
Baby Bodyguards was born out of our love and concern for children everywhere.
Part of the inspiration for our company came when I was pregnant with my first child. I made sure that I took the best possible care of myself. I wanted my son to have the best start in life. I ate right, did moderate exercise and got plenty of rest. Once I gave birth and my son became part of the external world, my fear and anxiety kicked in. After all, as Stone said so well, my heart was now walking around outside my body. Suddenly, motherhood gave me an insight to my formerly “over protective” mom.
In an effort to learn more about how we could ensure the safety of our child without getting completely neurotic, my husband and I took an infant safety class, We became certified in Infant/child CPR. My husband became a Certified car seat installer (Child Passenger Safety Technician).
We began learning and training ourselves about what we needed to know to safely “childproof” our home. After a time we were able to congratulate ourselves for providing a safe environment for our baby… And then, my son started crawling, cruising, and then walking. Once again, there seemed to be potential danger around every corner.
I felt truly lucky that I was able to spot a problem and fix it before my son got himself into trouble. What started as a personal project, has grown into a baby safety crusade.
Today the Baby Bodyguard family consists of hand picked Pediatricians, Nurses, Emergency Medical Technicians, Firemen, Contractors and Craftsmen, all of whom share the same passion for child safety. This blend of expertise from so many safety professionals gives Baby Bodyguards a very unique approach to babyproofing your home from the real dangers without fear mongering to sell you products.
Having a baby made me a mother and being a mother instilled in me the need to protect and make the world a safer place for all children.
