Before you leave for the long awaited vacation you've been dreaming about, be prepared for childproofing your hotel room. Just because you're going on a vacation doesn't mean that your responsibilities are on a vacation too!
Just use your common sense when planning to childproof your hotel room. Think of the room as a smaller version of your home, taking the same precautions. But before you leave, call your hotel to see if childproofing equipment is available at your hotel. If not, be equipped with all the essentials to do it yourself.
When you arrive at the hotel, give the room a good inspection. Take notice of all the potential dangers for a child. You may want to even get down on your hands and knees and view the room from your child's point of view. Look carefully at the floor, are there any staples or tacks lingering around?
Once you have inspected the room take some time to make your adjustments.
Take extra precautions when you are traveling as your family is in a new, unfamiliar environment and may need more supervision than normal.
