BABY PROOF SERVICE AREA

KINDLY NOTE: 

Baby Proof is based in Roodepoort. I currently only do call-outs and installations in this area and surrounding areas within a 40 km radius


IMPORTANT NOTIFICATION: 

I no longer do quotes or installations based on photo’s, videos and measurements provided by clients alone. There are no shortcuts when it comes to child safety.

An assessment and detailed discussion at your home is necessary to decide which products are suitable and to take accurate measurements.  This is a prerequisite to using my baby proofing service – CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO.

Should you decide to do the Baby Proofing yourself, I have written useful articles to guide you. All child safety products available on my online shop have been tried, tested, and approved.

The products have detailed descriptions, images, and installation instructions if you scroll down the product page – be sure to read this before purchasing any product.

Your Complete, Hassle Free Solution to a Child Proof Home!

Approved and Tested Safety Products
★ Owner Installs
★ 17 Years of Experience in the Industry 

STEP 1 IN THE CHAIN OF SURVIVAL IS PREVENTING INJURY


Medical Professionals only administer the FOURTH and FINAL link in the chain of survival. This means 75% of your child’s chances of survival fall into your or your child minders hands.

Without making your child’s environment a safe one, getting up to date on safety, learning how to administer CPR, and keeping EMS numbers in accessible places at all times – even a well-trained and experienced medic has little hope of saving a child’s life.


SOUTH AFRICA'S #1 CHILDPROOFING SPECIALIST

With parents’ busy lifestyles and with 85% of South African parents both being breadwinners, Baby Proof SA has become a life saver for many.

Having a dedicated Nanny to watch over your precious cargo at home is a luxury not many can afford.  Often parents are forced to ask their housekeeper to look after the baby as well, this can be a daunting task.

Baby proofing, when done professionally provides a fixed solution to help keep your baby safe. Childproofing products have evolved over the years and there is a solution to just about every possible problem area.

All products installed by Baby Proof have been tried and tested, narrowing products available on the retail market down to those that are practical and that do not compromise on the safety of your child or pet.

In combining experience, knowledge and out of-the-box thinking, Baby Proof SA will leave you feeling confident that your little one is protected.


THE GOAL OF CHILDPROOFING


The goal of childproofing your home is not to turn your home into a prison-like setting that completely inhibits a child’s ability to explore and develop.  Rather, childproofing should balance factors such as safety, aesthetics, cost, child supervision level, and liveability.

Each home is different; as well as each room in your home being different.  Baby Proof has been owner run for 17 years by Michelle Jacobs, SA’s renowned Childproofing Expert, who has seen and conquered many home-design challenges that pose potential life-threatening injuries to babies, toddlers, and pets.


WHEN TO BABY PROOF

Baby-proofing has never been this easy!  From identifying potential hot spots in your home; choosing child safety products specific to your needs; to installing these devices properly & effectively – we cover it all!

So when your little one’s just cruising for a bruising, our uncompromising service will cushion their fall. By Baby proofing not only will you gain awareness of the possible dangers in your home but you will obtain solutions to help keep your Baby Safe.

On average babies start to crawl at 8 months, which means many get moving even earlier. A crawling baby will soon start pulling up too, which means counters and other surfaces are no longer out of reach. We, as adults take a lot of things in our home for granted, because we have learnt to handle them. Getting down on all fours helps us see the world in a new way & opens up our eyes to potential dangers we may not have thought about. This simple exercise will really help you recognize the dangers that exist for children & you’ll be well on your way to a healthy & safety conscious frame of mind.

DISCLAIMER:

Under no circumstances does any environmental modification or safety device installed act as a substitution for an informed caregiver.

Adult supervision is ALWAYS a prerequisite when infants & children are present – with or without baby proofing. Child safety products installed must only be seen as a deterrent.
Toxic, dangerous substances & plants as well as sharp edges, pointed objects OR glass objects should always be placed “high up” – totally inaccessible to small children.
