Before the baby starts to be mobile, it's wise to move electronics, breakable, toxic or dangerous objects to a place that the baby can't reach, and to have baby gates and locks for cupboards and drawers that they should stay out of. This way, the child can explore and move about freely in the house and doesn't have to constantly be watched or told not to touch things all the time. She is in a safe environment that welcomes her, that she feels at ease to be in, and that holds no dangers for her.

It is also well worth cultivating cooking habits that keep hot items away from a child’s standing reach, and turning pot handles away form the edge of the stove.
