I'm a paediatrician – we're not being annoying when we ask if your house is child-proof, the proof is just horrific

PARENTS' priority is always keeping their little ones safe and out of harm's way, but there are a lot of potential hazards around your home.

From blind cords to kitchen drawers, sometimes it can feel like people are being a little over the top with their safety measures.


But one TikTok paediatrician uploaded a video making it very clear why you should child-proof your home.

Dr Tiorra Ross said: "So here are reasons why we as paediatricians ask 'is your house baby-proof' and that certain furnitures are secured to the wall."

She explained: "The goal is to prevent falls and/or accidents."

The shocking video then showed a series of clips where dolls, made up to look like children pull on furniture – as children do.

The sideboards and cupboards, that are not attached to the wall, then come crashing down on the "child" showing the potential damage to a youngster.

She captioned the video with: "WARNING."

Parents were quick to comment on the video and one was desperate to know how she could fasten her furniture to the wall.

Dr Ross said: "There are instructions with each furniture but if not hardware stores have items… and they can help you!"

Another parent said: "This knocked the wind out of me. That's so scary!"

A third said: "I'm glad I've seen this! I have a 11 year old so house isn't baby proof anymore and just had a baby so this is a reminder to re-baby proof."
