We anchor all dressers and bookshelves to the wall.

by msjoecoolOctober 9, 2012 at 8:51 AMIm so glad your little ones are OK. My nephew died less than a month before his second birthday because of an unsecured dresser.

That IS scary. I'm a paranoid mom... was before my first was even born. lol. My husband thinks I'm too paranoid and that really angers me because my attitude is "better safe than sorry". Time for me to start insisting he buys brackets for those things that don't even seem wobbly.
Glad your little one is ok. I'm sure you'll be watching her like a hawk over the next 48 hours.

I am one of those really paranoid moms too. These kinds of things DO happen, frequently. I would rather be considered too safe than too sorry.
That said, we have those plastic storage drawers, I had two stacked on top of each other, six drawers. One morning I guess DS thought he could climb and they all fell on him. I was SO scared and worried and sad. We secured them immediately and he was 100 percent fine since they were pretty light weight - but I was mortified.
Glad your LO's are fine!

scary. glad they are okay.
We had a similar experience with our son when he was about 4 1/2. One day during his nap strike I walked into his room and he was sitting on his window sill with the window OPEN and he was leaning on the screen. I yelled (out of fear) and grabbed him down as fast as I could. His window opens side-to-side with the lever that you hold down and then pull. I had NO idea he had learned to open them and he had never climbed up there before. There is nothing but a 2 story fall out his window so it was absolutely a miracle that he didn't lean too far back on that screen and fall out. I could have died. Needless to say I rushed right out to Home Depot and got a thing that goes in his window track and tightens with an allen wrench and now his window doesn't open up enough to get his head thru. Man I've never been so scared in my life! I also put the video monitor facing his window for a couple weeks after that to make sure he didn't climb up there anymore...and he didn't.
I'm so glad your kids are okay.
