Safety at Home and Away
Hello, I’m Alison Rhodes, The Safety Mom. The folks at Evenflo have invited me to
address some typical home safety issues – important to you and your
family. Each month I’ll offer some tips
and advice about keeping your home safe while providing baby a safe and secure
place to grow and play. I’ll also answer
a reader question each month, so please send me an email at
Alison@safetymom.com if you have
something on your mind.
With Mother's Day and Memorial Day right around the corner
you are in the process of planning a few road trips or family barbeques, which
means you need to be safety- ready at home and away. Having the right home
safety products will put you at ease while entertaining your guests and will
allow baby the freedom to play in her safety zone. Choosing the right home
safety products that are convenient when traveling can make all the difference
when trying to pack for the kids and get everyone out the door. Evenflo has a
variety of products to help ensure you have the right tools to keep baby away
from those danger hot spots while at home and away.
Planning a neighborhood barbeque at your house for Memorial
Day means people constantly coming in and out the patio door. Guests need to be
able to move with ease from room to room without feeling trapped by your superb
baby proofing skills. The Easy Walk-Thru™ features a simple one-handle operation and
swings in either direction, perfect for wandering guests. The gate makes it
easy for any adult to maneuver around, especially your guests who are juggling
a plate piled high with macaroni salad in one hand and an iced tea in the
other. There are no tools required for installation and width extensions allow
the gate to adapt to various doorways.
For the Weekend Traveler
Packing for a weekend trip can sometimes be more than you
bargained for. Trying to remember what you need, as well as what baby needs can
leave you stressed, instead of looking forward to getting away. One less thing
to worry about is baby's safety while away from home. The Soft & Wide™ Gate
lightweight and folds up in seconds, and comes with a convenient carrying bag
for travel to and from home.
The stairs are a big concern for parents, especially when
baby begins to take her first few steps. Before you know it, she will be an
independent toddler looking to explore her surroundings. The Home Décor Top of
Stair™ Gate can be mounted for use at the top or bottom of the stairs to help
keep baby away from these danger hot spots. The gate also features one-handed
controls to making maneuvering around the stairs easy for you, but not for
baby. The stylish wood frame easily blends into your home décor and a hardware
mount ensures a sturdy hold.
The All-Around Option
Whether you are at home or visiting family, the Memory Fit™
Gate is the perfect option to ensure a fast, secure and proper installation
every time. Secure Memory Lock remembers doorway size and a pressure mount
design eliminates the need for tools; saving you time and energy. The gate
features a child-restraint, one-hand release that requires two actions to unlock,
helping to ensure that this gate will help to create a safe area for the most
curious and determined of babies.
To make home safety even easier, Evenflo has a simple tool
to help you find the right gate for your family. For more information, visit www.evenflo.com.

safe and secure will help you create a little peace of mind.
