Todays post is by guest blogger Kimberlee Mitchel of The Safety 1st Squad.  Kimberlee Mitchell, child safety expert and founder of Boo Boo Busters Professional Babyproofing Service in southern California, is chief advisor to the Safety 1st Squad development team. This enterprising “momprenuer” has partnered with Safety 1st to expand her home childproofing service expertise
to the east coast through the launch of the Safety 1st SquadSM

After reading about Kimberlee and her business, I couldn’t wait to have her do a guest blog for Mighty Mommies.  Childproofing is so important and yet very tedious.  It’s not one of the fun parental tasks that we look forward to doing.  I know my husband and I put it off until the very last-minute which came rather quickly because Dominic hit all his physical milestones early.  He was rolling over at 3 months, sitting up at 4, pulling up at 6 months crawling by 7 and walking by 9 months.  One day he stayed where I put him and the next he was across the room.  It was very stressful trying to get all of the childproofing completed.  So, take some advice from the expert and do it early.  Here is what Kimberlee has to say.  ENJOY!

Get Ahead of the Curve: Childproof During Pregnancy

Most new parents consider childproofing “something they’ll get to later”
and then “later” they find themselves in a panic when the baby begins to
crawl.  Times flies! A newborn requires an inordinate amount of time and
attention and your days rush by at a rapid pace.  Before you know it,
your little one is mobile!  Be proactive and get parental peace-of-mind
by getting ahead of the curve and childproofing during pregnancy, when
time is abundant and sleep is plentiful.  The average baby begins to
crawl at about six months, at which point the job of parenting becomes
more exciting, as well as, scary when your child no longer stays where
you put him.  Some industrious infants can even roll before they sit up
and surprisingly lay some serious tread all the way across the room!
Your little one’s curiosity sans (yet to be developed) common sense,
propels him into harm’s way time and time again and it’s your job to be
one step ahead of your little one paving the way of safety.  With
unintentional injury being the #1 killer of children between the ages of
1 and four claiming more lives than violence and all disease combined,
parents simply cannot afford to procrastinate.
