Walk into the home of a family with a little tyke crawling around and you might notice the array of strategically placed bumpers, barriers, monitors and an ever-accumulating number of other safeguards installed throughout the house to make it babyproof. On the other hand, you might not notice them — because they’re stealthier than ever. Stronger too. Beyond highchairs, strollers and car seats it's clear that manufacturers are looking to invent the next petroleum-based product that could help keep babes safe at home.
