Mirror: One in 10 parents of kids aged under three admits their house isn’t baby-proof


Research, into 1,000 mums and dads with young children, revealed that despite over half deeming themselves worriers, nearly a quarter have never baby-proofed their home.

A quarter believed there would never be an issue to worry about, and only 17 percent had checked their home for potential hazards regularly when their kids were up to three-years-old.

Installing security steps, putting medication out of reach, fitting baby gates and keeping small items out of sight were the most common changes made by those who took any.

However, just over a quarter admit their child has swallowed something potentially harmful – with 86 percent of these ending up seeking medical attention for their child.
