Great babyproofing tips to keep the kids safe!

Babyproofing is a challenge for any parent, but babyproofing an RV? That’s a whole different ball game.

Some RVs come with built-in babyproofing features such as locking cabinets. But babies and toddlers are naturally curious and seem to have a knack for finding trouble everywhere. To help you out, we’ve rounded up seven of the best ways to babyproof your RV.

1. Outlet Covers

Forks don’t belong in electrical outlets. Protect inquisitive kids from shocks with a 36-count pack of outlet covers for $6.64 on Amazon.

2. Knob Covers

Did you know it’s estimated that 486,000 people receive medical treatment for burn injuries every year? Keep kids from turning on stovetop burners with a 5-count pack of clear stove knob covers for $9.88 on Amazon.

3. Oven Lock

That hot oven should stay closed too, and this oven lock is just the tool to make it happen. Get one for yourself for $6.40 on Amazon.

4. Stove Guard

Sometimes you have to cook on the stove. When that’s the case, protect your child from burns with a polycarbonate stove guard. Use the adhesive strips to stick it your oven and you’ll create a solid barrier between curious hands and hot burners. Get your own stove guard for $19.99 on Amazon.

5. Wireless Door Alarm

Keep track of when your child is entering or exiting with a wireless door alarm. Set it to alarm with a four-digit code to disarm, or use the chime function to hear a single tone each time the door opens. Find it for $15.87 on Amazon.

6. Baby Gate

If your baby spends a lot of time in the RV, consider buying a baby gate specifically for your RV. This extra tall walk-thru gate is easily adjustable and only $45.99 on Amazon.

7. Travel-Tot Travel Childproofing Kit

Get all the essential babyproofing items in one convenient kit. The Travel-Tot Travel Childproofing Kit includes pinch guards, outlet covers, corner guards, a sliding door lock, cabinet locks, a thermometer, and more. Find it for $34.95 from the manufacturer.
