Summer is in full swing and with it comes longer days and warmer nights, most of which are likely spent BBQing with friends and family. But after becoming a parent, these shindigs aren't strictly fun and games anymore. As you already know, there's a whole new level of safety that must be thought through when there is a baby around. Believe it or not, baby proofing isn't just limited to things like stairways, make-up drawers, and cabinets of cleaning supplies. You should also know how to baby proof your BBQ, because every parent knows that kids are masters at getting into things they shouldn't.
Whether your child is rolling, crawling, walking, or not such a baby anymore, there are still necessary precautions to take to ensure that everyone is as safe and happy as possible. Although most of these steps will probably be second nature to most parents, it's still worth making a few mental (and maybe even physical) notes of them to make sure that there aren't any reckless accidents due to lack of foresight. Since summer should be a carefree, casual, and relaxing time for everyone, do yourself (and your baby) a favor and prepare before your next BBQ or outdoor party using these tips.
