When you have a baby everything has to be childproof in your house. It’s really important to check everything. I find Ehow Family really useful and they have a bunch of advice on how to make your home childproof.

I also came across a very useful article on my favorite site (believe it or not – it’s parenthacks.com) how to make childproof switch cover. It needs a bit DIY but I’m sure you partner or husband can help you with it.

Laura’s husband came up with this brilliant and frugal idea:

My husband came up with a solution – he took a bottle from the recycle bin (happened to be a Johnson’s baby soap one, but I think a gallon milk jug would be great – the opaqueness looks classier somehow), cut out a 4″ long extended oval and screwed it over the switch with the screws that hold the switch cover on – making it bow out a bit. It curves over the switch and we can reach under it to hit the switch, but our now 2.5 year old can’t quite coordinate getting his fingers under and doing anything with it.
