Baby proofing your hotel room or rental home is a must for traveling families.

One of the items in our VacaDUN Baby Gear Rental welcome package for our traveling family customers - at no charge - are baby-proof plugs for electrical outlets. It’s something parents rarely think to bring nor items hotels or rental homes typically provide. We’re glad to do it and it’s always very appreciated.

There are tons of other hazards to children besides electrical outlets in hotels or homes, of course. From dangling curtain pulls to sharp desk and table corners to unsanitary remote controls, the dangers to children are many and often unexpected.
