Ah, yes. Kids. You know what happens when you’ve got kids, right? You can expect a summer outing or vacation is 50/50. 50% vacation and 50% guiding your kids on what to do and what not to do.
In the case of having a quick road trip with your family RV, child-proofing it for your baby’s safety is a top priority. Let’s discuss making your RV safe for your child.
What Is Child Proofing?
In simple terms, child-proofing is a technique parents do to keep their young ones safe around tools, equipment, or furniture. It is to prevent your child from being in an accident or incident that can be a health risk or is life-threatening.
5 Tips For Child-Proofing Your RV
When you have planned a family outing or trip with your RV, you have got to make sure that it is fun and, at the same time, safe for everyone, especially your precious younglings. Here are some techniques you can follow that are as effective as they are affordable and easy to do:
Install A Baby Gate
This way, your toddlers will have limited access to parts of your RV that are not suitable for them as they should be. This is the most basic rule in child-proofing.
Have Your Oven Locked and Stove Guarded
As toddlers would say, “Fire, bad.” You don’t want your child burned or in flames while you drive around in your RV. This should be ensured properly by your fellow grown-ups as well.
Put Covers On Your Outlets
Anything your babies can put in your RV’s outlet is a life-threatening hazard. Have it covered immediately or better yet, don’t let the children near the outlet by all means.
Cushion Your RV’s Sharp Corners
Tables, appliances, and even door knobs need cushions as these items have sharp corners that are dangerous to your toddlers. Running around and uncontrollably bumping on this equipment is prominent at their age, and making the edges softer through cushions can help your child be safe.
Put Screens On Your Windows and Lock Your Toilet
A baby could fall out of the RV through the windows and could be drowned in an unlocked toilet. This is an accident that is a parent’s worst nightmare. Install screens and a lock on the toilet in your RV, so you have less to worry about.
It is best to remember that when traveling in an RV with your family and young ones, safety needs to be a priority. Double the efforts in making your RV child-proof will be needed from you.
This way, all the fun, and good memories can come with the RV trip, not bad ones that can become traumatic to everyone on that trip. Don’t be afraid of tying out these affordable and accessible techniques that are sure to still be as effective in keeping your young ones safe.
