Once a baby begins rolling over and crawling, one of the most dangerous places actually becomes the home. In fact, more children die each year from injuries that could have been prevented than from every childhood disease combined! That’s a scary statistic, but there’s plenty parents can do about it. Baby-proofing your home is the number one way to help safeguard your child against many injuries and deaths. But how can you be sure you’ve done everything you can to make your home safe? Long Islanders can turn to All Star Baby Safety, a professional baby-proofing company based in Levittown. There are many do-it-yourself products out there to keep baby safe, but if installed incorrectly, these products can become ineffectual and even hazardous. Parents may buy a supposedly simple mechanism to baby-proof kitchen cabinets, only to come home and find that it has quite a few pieces and parts that must be drilled into cabinetry. An opening into your den may be too wide for standard childproofing gates, and attempting to install a makeshift gate can get complicated and messy, not to mention that it might not work. This is dangerous for your child and your home, since many parents inadvertently scratch, chip, or break cabinets, drawers, furniture, or walls when trying to baby-proof, and their attempts are often unsuccessful.

Let them assess your specific needs and install an individualized set of gates, locks, barriers, and whatever else you require.
