WELCOME


Kindly note:  Baby Proof is based in Johannesburg, and I currently only do call-outs and installations in this area and surrounding areas within a 30 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 to ascertain which products are suitable and to take accurate measurements is a prerequisite to using my baby proofing service.

Should you wish to do the Baby Proofing yourself, I have written some 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 – be sure to read this before purchasing any product.

Thank you for getting on board with Baby Proof and taking this important first step in your child’s future. 

I would like to welcome you into my safety net!

WHY CHOOSE BABY PROOF

Baby Proof | JHB | South Africa

Your complete, hassle free solution to a child proof home!


★ Approved and tested safety products

★ Owner Installs

★ 14 Years of experience in the industry 


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.

The goal of child proofing 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, child proofing should balance such factors as safety, aesthetics, cost, child supervision level, and liveability.


  

Important Disclaimer:  Please note that under no circumstances does any environmental modification or safety device installed by Baby Proof 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 by Baby Proof 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.
