Get the babyproofing basics

Televisions, TV Stands, Bookcases and Dresser Drawer
Most children like to crawl up to a television and touch it. Some like to climb up on bookcases. They like what they see, and they're very curious. If a television or bookcase isn't secure, it can, and often will, topple onto an unsuspecting child. Children naturally like to open dresser drawers. If they open a few or all of the drawers at once, the unit can topple over.
Helpful Hint: Be sure to fasten furniture to the wall. Install childproof latches to insure baby can't open drawers.
