Babies are very curious. They tend to put things in their mouths. They always need attention. Before your baby starts walking, you need to make a lot of changes to your home. Your drawers need to be kept locked. You should not keep glass and other brittle items out of reach of your baby. At least up to the age of 2 years, a child needs constant attention.
