When we bought our house, both our children’s bedrooms had blinds with long dangling cords that could have become caught around their necks. Recognising this to be a safety risk, we swiftly removed them.

We were particularly concerned about our toddler. If anything, the risk is greater as she’s a bit older and in a ‘big girl’s bed’ so can wander around her room at will. Now she’s out of a cot, I can see just how much of a risk a blind cord poses to a curious child.

The infographic below was produced by curtain and blind supplier curtains-blinds.co.uk. It gives a few pointers as to what us parents should keep in mind when installing a blind to ensure the children can’t have an accident with it.  I hope you find it useful.

    Blinds always scare me when children are around. You always hear the horror stories online so we now have curtains instead of blinds for this reason!
