  • i’m american and when you said 37 degrees for the bath i freaked out then i remembered that you don’t use fahrenheit �� and when you were talking about tea i was like “who just has hot tea with them constantly?” and then i was like… ohhhh….. brits……

  • For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

  • Really enjoyed this tip video. I also put my son in his highchair when I’m cooking. I don’t want him to get burnt either on the stove or the oven while cooking. Another thing that I do is we have a couple pieces of gate around one to block any dangerous corner that he can get himself into or covering up cables around the television. Also because he is starting to crawl all over the place and lifting himself up on stuff to stand I am constantly walking around to make sure he doesn’t fall on something that could attentionally putting in the hospital. Right now his room is a bit of a mess only because I’m still going through all the old clothes he can’t fit into anymore. He is at that age now where he rolls around and does not want his diaper changed. Not even after a bath. And the only way I can get him to stay still long enough to change his diaper is to give him a small cup of milk Could you give me any more ideas for that? We don’t have pull-ups for little babies out here we just have them for when they are doing the whole potty training thing. And my son is only nine months old.

  • Hi. We have a IKEA utility cart that we stote diapers and our daughters bathtime supplies. Now that she is 1 she likes to try and push it around. How do you suggest we childproof it. Is there a latch that affixes to the wall somehow?

  • Lol I live in North American [Canada] and most people do not get the tea thing haha [My father was from UK] always had a hot pot of tea on the stove [still do..] and drank it all day. If someone was drinking the last of the tea, they were making a new pot haha. My brother pulled a hot pot of tea on himself when he was a wee thing and he still has a big scar from it. he’s 36

  • My boy drove us crazy. Every Safety Percussion we used was tested and destroyed. He pulled the plugs put of the sockets using a fork at 9 months. He ripped Off Every Plastik Thing we put in edges to play with. He climbed the stare Gate at 11 months…

  • A Stair gate at the top of the stairs isn’t the best idea (this is what my mum told me) especially if your baby is a climber (like I was) and they climb up that gate if they fall down the stairs they have a longer more harmful fall than just falling from the top of the stairs. I know my mum took her stairs gates off because of me because I climbed anything I could so to avoid me having a potentially more damaging accident she took them down and I never had a fall down the stairs

  • Great tips! Great video! I love that you just get to the point and give valuable information:) Some people are just going on and on and on about nothing.

  • Emily, Your face is 4 times orange-ier than your hands. Did you not edit this yourself? Surely you own a mirror. Not attractive on Donald Trump not attractive on you.

  • in UK there is new rules on plug socks covers,

  • Plug socket covers are actually really dangerous. UK plug sockets are already safe, the plug covers actually give them the tool they need to actually hurt themselves x

  • Will need to look back on this video in a few months as my mom is 37 weeks & 5 days pregnant with a boy �� And then maybe in a few years for myself ��

  • Hi emily, first of all, thank you for such great tips. I am a father of 2 beautiful girls 10 years apart one 18 and the other 8 and a new born on the way, my first boy!! which is 8 years apart so its like starting all over again. I was really inspired by his video that I wanted share it on my channel and on facebook. Thank you for such great content.

  • I really enjoy how you talk people through your discoveries. I’m going to be a new mom in January and I find a lot of people turn baby proofing or just child care in general into a scary thing. I feel so at ease hearing your perspective Thank you!:)

  • Love your videos Emily!

    Just wanted to bring attention to the dangers of plug socket covers. This video explains why there cause more harm than good in regards to safety as they interfere with the safety measures already in place in the normal mechanism. You can learn more in the link, explained by a professional electrician.

  • For my baby we put a baby play pen around our fireplace instead of putting them inside of it so they don’t feel restricted or like they are not free to walk around

  • In the clip where you said you have a gate on the little one’s room, I’m wondering where you got the grey foam pit that his toys are in?

  • I am going to be a dad in November and I find your videos really insightful. They’re really making me feel like I’m prepared for parenthood. Keep up the stirling work!

  • Emily you’re a lifesaver my mum saw these hacks and her life just got better because recently my baby brother stared to climb up the stairs and once he fell of the stairs so now that we have the gate he can’t open it!! Thx for all the hacks! xx

  • Hi Emily, great channel.
    I am concerned about the dangerous taps at bath time as my son likes to splash around and could knock his head but my taps are very different to yours and the whale cover would not be at all suitable. I am in the UK where the taps come from the surface out of the bath and not from the wall. What could I use to cover these bath taps?

  • eeks I need to look into this!!! I’m so worried when yahya starts crawling around. hopefully I will start to implement this soon!:) thanks so much x

  • Great video but plug socket covers are more dangerous than nothing at all. In the uk our sockets are not live until the third pin is activated, so by putting a socket cover on you make the plug live. This can be done with a socket cover by a child easily without the lower 2 pins being in! I only discovered this when my son was around 4months old and we got rid of them all! Otherwise loved the video

  • thats why american kinds are not independent. Met a american mother and she did not even let her 10 year old light a candle i nearly fell from my chair cuz i laught so hard
