Essential Guide to Baby and Toddler Home Safety

Confidently create a safe environment for your little one with the guidance of internationally recognized child safety expert, Holly Choi.
A safe place to grow.

The Essential Guide to Baby and Toddler Home Safety is a comprehensive video “encyclopedia” for all things home safety for families with a baby or toddler.

If you have ever wanted to borrow the brain of baby and toddler safety expert, Holly Choi (@safebeginnings), to keep your little one safe: now you can! Holly’s goal was to create a course that caregivers could work through to solve a number of challenges around the home from a babyproofing perspective, and easy strategies to prevent serious injury.

The course starts off with “The Safety Mindset” module, where she talks about how to approach safety decision making and how to look at scenarios through an injury-prevention lens, without needing to feel like a “helicopter parent”. She provides you with all the information so that you can make solid choices for your own family, choices that fit your personal risk tolerance.

"the right amount of thoroughness"
I love the course. It is the right amount of thoroughness without being too overwhelming or scary. I also love that now as certain milestones come up, I have easy to find resources to rewatch versus videos on Instagram where it's hard to find the right one when you need it.
