    Subject:  Baby proofing service
    Comment:  We used and loved Baby Bodyguards. They did an initial consultation, which was so helpful to us first time parents (who knew a tablecloth could be a death trap!?) They did all the installations, too; we needed it because we're super un-handy but you can also buy a la carte from them if you're more skilled with a drill than meGood luck,

    Subject:  Baby proofing service
    Comment:  We used Baby Bodyguards and they did all of that. Came to our home, made suggestions, took a practical approach and didn't try to sell us on unnecessary items or bubble wrap our apartment, and installed everything.

    Subject:  Help Installing Baby/Toddler Gates
    Comment:  We used to baby body guards, and thought they were fantastic! They install gates all the time, so they can do it very efficiently and know how to deal with any unique installation problems. I would highly recommend them.(Review submitted Jan 2016)

    Subject:   Back ISO excellent baby proofer
    Comment:  I used Baby Bodyguards about 1 1/2 yrs ago when my twins were getting mobile and scary. I did the Home Evaluation, as well as had them install window guards. I thought it was a good deal - I checked out the cost for some of the materials they used (latches, outlet covers, etc) and if I'd bought them on my own, it would have cost about the same (plus I would have had to install them).

    Comment:  I wanted to post a recommendation for Baby Bodyguards http://www.babybodyguards.com/. We used them recently to child-proof our 7th floor deck with plexiglas and to provide a few child-proofing products for inside our apartment. Fred, the owner, is a very nice guy, doesn't try to sell you stuff you don't need and is reliable and timely. We had a very good experience working with them.

    Comment:  I want to highly recommend a local, professional baby-proofing business called "Baby Bodyguards" that was recommended to us by friends in Park Slope. It's owned and operated by a husband/wife team who live in Bklyn with their two small children.I'm not a shill for Baby Bodyguards, and have no affiliation with them whatsoever except that they baby-proofed our apt two weeks ago. Trust me when I tell you that no one was more skeptical of a baby-proofing service than my husband and I. (In fact, we were the first people to make fun anyone who would hire a baby-proofer!) But as it turns out, Baby Bodyguards are not new-parent-chasing fear-mongers.Fred (BB's husband/co-owner) arrived right on time with all his own tools and supplies (which are included in the package price). And he doesn't just throw some outlet plugs at you and leave. Not only did he thoroughly assess our entire apt, but he also asked me questions relating to smoke/carbon monoxide alarms, fire extinguishers, infant/child CPR, fire escape plans, window guards, lead paint, radiator covers, emergency contact lists, etc. He made suggestions about furniture/storage changes and safety tips, but never once tried to sell us anything extra or install safety devices that we didn't need. He's not an alarmist; he's a very pleasant, professional, non-judgmental fellow. (BB works with the NYFD re: fire safety, residential building codes, etc.) Fred also did a few hugely helpful extra things (anchoring standing shelves and a dresser to the wall, installing a doorstop, etc.) without charging us extra $$.And their service doesn't end there. Afterward, BB emails you a document with all the relevant baby-proofing information, links, etc. relating to your apt and any further steps you (or your landlord) may want to take on your own.Yes, we could've baby-proofed ourselves, but realistically, we weren't getting around to it. All of a sudden our son was crawling and we hadn't done anything to make our apt a safer environment for him. The fact that Fred did just that in 2 1/2 hours with his own supplies was, to us, completely worth the $300.* Oh, and if you're a Park Slope Parents member, you get 10% off their service.Again, this is just for what it's worth...I get no kickbacks!

    Comment:  Just wanted to give a major shout out to Baby Bodguards. Frederick came over to install the monstrous car seat that the Car Seat Lady told me to get (a star for him, strike for her). He spent an hour with me, teaching me how to install it in my car and other cars, and then gave me a list of appropriate recommendations for my tiny little car, since the one I got wasn't a good fit.The real gift came later, when my car got stolen, and the giant car seat with it. I bought another car seat and Frederick came back and gave me a free lesson with the new seat, spending just as much time and fielding just as many questions about all things related to car and kid safety. I highly, highly recommend them.

    Comment:  Fred did a fantastic job babyproofing our house. Every single piece of advice and product he installed has come in handy with our wild toddler boy, especially now that I'm home full time raising him. My house would be a huge "NO!" from my child's perspective if it weren't for Fred's help. There were so many things I wouldn't have thought of. Like the nifty product that stops your windows from opening past the window guard height. Now that my toddler pulls things to the window to climb on them and get as high as possible to see outside (which was not the case when Fred first installed them), I can really see the value! I wanted the peace of mind that my house was safe, and also convenient for the adults so that we could allow our child to wander into another room without a looming danger that we either would or would not know potentially existed. Fred also made himself available after the consultation for unlimited questions about child safety. Thank you, Fred! You made our home safe and toddler-friendly!
