baby-proofing made modern {Rhoost} + Giveaway

So, I’m here again.  Baby-proofing.  My son is rapidly approaching 6 months and with that, lots of movement.  With a goal of keeping up with his big sister, he’s showing early signs of crawling.  I’m already cringing a bit as I hear boys are a bit more adventurous.  My daughter wasn’t much for climbing or exploring cabinets, so I know I need to amp up my baby-proofing game for baby boy.  But, wah, I don’t want our pretty house to look all… baby-proofed and I definitely don’t want my furniture ruined.  Keep it safe while keeping it furniture-friendly with awesome products from Rhoost (cute name, right?).

It feels like just yesterday I was meeting my son for the first time, but alas, he is sitting up and just dying to crawl already.  I know once he crawls, life will continue racing by and he will be up and motoring around in no time.  Commence the modern baby-proofing!

great packaging!

Rhoost is a welcome find in a world off ugly baby-proofing products that destroy kitchen cabinets and furniture.  Safety is, of course, number one but now you do not have to sacrifice the look or function of your home.  We know to keep harmful chemicals or sharp objects up high, but the cabinets with handles still need to be locked.  The Cabinet Closure from Rhoost is a chic way to deter prying fingers without causing damage to your furniture… no sticky adhesive or invasive screws.  They come in brown or black, are simple to unlock (for adults) and fit most standard knobs and handles.  Easy peasy.  Moving on.

I didn’t realize until now that we don’t have any handles or knobs on any of our cabinets!  Tricky.

Once baby is cruising, those coffee table corners become a very dangerous space.  It seems that every young tot has an encounter with the corners at least once in their lives.  Protect your baby and your furniture with the Rhoost Corner Protector, a sleek guard in black, brown or plum.  Once again, there is no adhesive or screw to cause damage to your favorite coffee and other low tables.  I was a bit befuddled with these, even after watching the installation video.  She makes it look so easy!  It is actually pretty simple but the first time was tricky.  Definitely watch the how-to video. This Corner Protector will fit tables of 0.5-1.5 inches thickness, which does not include my coffee table, sadly.  It does fit my office desk though on the second adjustment (there are three notches) which is about 3/4″ thick.

Is it just me or are those standard outlet covers impossible to remove?  I wouldn’t dare attempt to remove one with a freshly manicured hand because they are guaranteed nail chippers!  I get it, because if I can pry it out simply, my kids probably could too after some time.  The Rhoost Outlet Covers fit just as tightly but can be easily removed with the plug of an appliance.  So next time you need to vacuum, remove the cover with a prong of the plug — your manicure is safe!  Just remember to place it back in the outlet when you are done.  I confess — I have used this method many times with the old outlet covers, but with less success and a lot of damage to the covers (and plugs).  Brilliant idea, Rhoost!

Another hazard to tiny fingers is the door and its hinges.  The Rhoost Finger Guard hooks over the door hinge and makes it impossible to close your fingers in the door.  This is absolutely the item in the collection I wish I had the most with my first child.  She was always sticking her fingers in that dangerous space between the jamb and door.  These would have prevented quite a bit of pain for her, but at least babe #2 will be spared!  Super duper easy to use, remove and replace, the Finger Guards are a no-brainer.  I will probably leave them always on the french style doors to my office that I never close.

These Rhoost products can be purchased online at Rhoost and a host of other retailers like Target, and Giggle.  They are nicely priced in the range of $7.99-14.99 in packs of multiples.  I say Rhoost could really charge more for these stylish yet functional products, but I am happy they don’t.  All products are BPA, Lead, PVC, Phthalate, and Cadmium Free.  No flame retardants or foam chemicals added and are 100% recyclable.

The only listed con, and the only I could find, is that these products may increase tantrums in exploratory babies not getting their way!

    First of all I want to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your head before writing. I have had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Thanks!

    I have been browsing on-line more than 3 hours nowadays, yet I by no means found any interesting article like yours. It’s lovely value enough for me. In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made excellent content as you did, the net will probably be much more useful than ever before.

    I am really loving the theme/design of your weblog. Do you ever run into any browser compatibility issues? A number of my blog readers have complained about my site not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox. Do you have any ideas to help fix this problem?
