Baby development: Your 5 month old

Keeping baby safe

Be sure to baby proof your home at your baby’s level.

Having a newborn at home doesn’t necessarily require a lot of babyproofing — but having a 5-month-old, who’s growing more mobile by the day, calls for a thorough sweep of your home. Secure all of your furniture to your walls and take a cruise around your house on your hands and knees. What will your baby see as he or she moves around the house? Identify and address any hazards.
