A Safe Outlet for Your Anxiety

Boo Boo Busters Babyproofing

boo boo busters babyproofing!

You moved the knives out of reach and placed the tea kettle on the back burner, but when faced with the prospect of childproofing your pad, it seems easier to put baby on lockdown.

Play it safe with babyproofing guru Kimberlee Mitchell’s Boo Boo Busters. Her eagle-eyed consultants scour your home from floor to ceiling before providing a complete safety recommendation — from the basics (safety gates, cabinet latches, outlet covers) to hidden hazards (plexi barriers for loft dwellers, wire management, relocating the minibar).

You can order supplies and go at it alone or choose professional installation. To avoid broken bones without breaking the bank, Boo Boo Busters offers a phased plan tied to your child’s development (toilet locks for toddlers now, window guards for kids later).

Relax. You’ve got this one all locked up.
