The Easy Weddings Forums have now been retired to make way for a brand new discussions area!

Over the years the Easy Weddings forum has been a great place to ask questions, post stories and meet other brides (and grooms).

Unfortunately as our community has grown - the forum has no longer been able to give YOU, the best possible experience on our site.

SO - we've decided to retire the current forums to make way for a simpler, easier and more fun community experience! It's now easier than ever to start a conversation, contribute back to the community with helpful answers or just share your wedding journey with others.

Best of all, the new discussions area uses your existing Easy Weddings account to sign in!

Visit the new Discussions Section

P.S. To all our existing forum users - please note that you will no longer be able to login, post or reply to any topics in the old forum. We encourage you to visit the new discussion section instead. We don't plan on removing any of the old content so you can still dig up any old conversations you may have once had :)

After todays news story about a Melbourne babys pram falling on the tracks (where the baby miraculously survived) I found the Kidsafe recommendations for travelling on trains with prams (particularly 3 wheelers):
Some is common sense (buckle baby into the restraint at all times, apply brakes when not in motion) and others I might not have immediately thought of (exit trains rear wheels first).

The main Kidsafe site is here: and I'm having a peek around at it now.

I don't want to totally wrap my children in cotton wool and bubble wrap, sheltering them from everything but I'm sure there is plenty that I should learn about to be a responsible mum.

Was wondering if perhaps we could make a sticky thread on safety?

What has/is everyone else doing to child-safe their homes or has anyone found some safety products they really love?

Yeah,,,I too read this news in one local magazine in India. I don't think without god's grace he was saved. Really the saving credit all goes to the pram itself...I am not going with pram to a railway station. I carrying him with my hands although I go for shopping also...

I've found cupboard locks are a life saver, especially with two toddlers running through the house! I found these were great. The kids couldn't get into them and it's easy for us to unlock them:


I still use them to this day and they are 3. Yes my girls are curious pains in the butt :lol:

I also found this a bit "unconventional" but when my girls where between the ages of 1 and 2 they had this obsession with getting into my kitchen drawers and pulling everything out. As well as annoying I was worried they would pull the drawers right out on top of them or pull out something sharp from the kitchen instruments drawers. I ended up stopping them by sliding a broomstick through all the handles so to pull out one drawer they had to pull out all four at once - no easy feat! It was a hassle when I wanted to get something but as long as it stopped my girls it was worth it
