Do you ever have times when you wonder who the market is for a certain product or wonder what that thing-a-ma-jig even does?
Before my youngest child, I had electricity points covered by those little plastic socket covers – but I needn’t have, neither of my children ever tried to poke anything into the socket.
I had cupboard locks in place for the oldest as she liked to pull them open and play with the pots and pans. That fad lasted all of about 2 weeks and that was that.
Beau is the child that makes everything make sense. I remember walking down the safety aisle of Bunnings Warehouse one day and seeing an entire row of baby safety products and truly wondering who even bought those things. Have you ever wondered why those things exist?
Now I know what those things are, I know why they exist and I am more than aware who is buying them! It’s Mama’s like me, with babes like Beau.
He is the kid that I have found on more than one occasion standing in the toilet bowl, with his shoes and socks on, after his older brother had been number ones without flushing (thankfully it was not number two’s!)
He is the child that went through a phase of entering the bathroom several times a day, climbing into the basin, putting in the plug, turning on the tap and brushing his teeth – yes, whilst sitting in the basin, with the basin filling with water. You read that right!!
He is the kid that can open the bathroom door. None of my other children ever even tried. We spent a few long weeks with our bathroom door locked from the inside, and kept a butter knife on top of the door jamb to enable us to unlock it from the outside.
He is the child that sticks anything and everything within reach into an electrical socket – at home, at the dr’s office, at friends houses, anywhere he can find a socket that isn’t plugged up!
He is the child that fidgets with the bath, turning the temperature gauge – but without the maturity to know that hot will burn and how to switch it off again! He is the child that undresses himself at other people’s homes and runs their bath, then runs around in the nick shouting “Beau bath, Beau bath!”.
And after making a (mostly) easy transition from cot to big bed at 19 months, both my older two children took around a month to even realise that they could get out of the bed on their own. After putting Beau into his big bed for the first time and tucking him in, at 21 months old, I literally walked out the door and got half way down the hall (my hall way is not long!) and found him behind me. He’d figured it out. Arrrrrgggghhhhh!
So, it was a no brainer decision when Dreambaby contacted me and asked if I would like to review any of their products. If they’d come to me when I was a younger Mama, I probably would have politely declined the opportunity. These were, after all, products I had no real need for and could not therefore speak confidently about or authentically review.
But here I find myself, a prime candidate for testing products that deal with all the hazards I have mentioned when it comes to my whirlwind crazy child, the one that truly keeps me on my toes.
Each of these products have been a lifesaver:
The Ezi-Fit Door Knob Covers have meant we can relax when we don’t know where he is and can be confident that our water bill is not being unnecessarily hiked due to public enemy under-two.
The toilet is safe thanks to this ingenious invention – the Toilet Lock.
And the bath spout is safe too with the Spout Cover.
And my favourite of all is the bed rail – this little wiggly worm is safe and snug in his bed thanks to the Harrowgate Bed Rail.
These are just four products in the very expansive range of Child Safety items from the Dreambaby range. Your child may have completely different tendencies – I’m well aware now that if there is a product for it, it’s because there was a need in the first place.
I have a bundle of all these Dreambaby goodies to giveaway to one lucky reader. To enter, head to my FB page and follow the requirements.
