  • ParentWonder’s 101 Child Safety and Childproofing Tips for Parents

    I don’t know how anyone finds the time to make a list of 101 things, but you can find this handy checklist here. I’ve only skimmed the tips, but this one caught my eye:

    28. Cover the bathtub spout with an inflatable safety gadget to prevent bruising and burns.

    The first spout cover we got didn’t fit well and our current spout cover doesn’t seem to offer much protection. I might give this one a shot.


    1. Cathy, thanks for the mention. Appreciate it. Glad that you’re doing something to protect the kids 😉

    2. Our pediatrician’s office had free Dove soap samples that came with a blow up spout cover for the tub. Best free thing I ever got!

    3. Patti – I wish our pediatrician’s office was handing those out! :)
