Safe Toddles trusts parents’ instincts! Parents instinctively want to protect their blind babies while also encouraging them to walk confidently without holding their hand.
For toddlers born blind, safe independence is now possible. Thanks to the Safe Toddles Pediatric Belt Cane, blind toddlers now have a safety tool that allows them to be independently mobile and safe as they explore to learn.

The Belt Cane is the only mobility tool that addresses the diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility needs of blind toddlers. Children with blindness or mobility visual impairment, including those with cortical visual impairment from 10 months to 11 years have shown their eagerness to walk on their own once their families provide them with the power of independent safety. Watch this video to see the highlights of many of the children who have benefited by wearing belt canes.
We are proud of the work we have done so far; our belt cane has already made the lives of 1000s of toddlers who are blind safer to explore. But there is so much more work to do. Safe Toddles’ staff work tirelessly to reach every toddler whose life would forever be changed for the better if only the Safe Toddles’ Belt Cane was available to them. Thousands of toddlers remain unserved and unsafe.
We are working tirelessly to increase our ability to reach parents.
EVERY PARENT NEEDS TO KNOW that a real safety solution exists for their blind babies. It is our goal to provide the Safe Toddles’ Belt Cane and wrap around supports to every toddler who is blind in the world. Wearing the belt cane allows blind toddlers to feel safe as they reach their independent walking potential. Independent walking essential to early childhood development, that's why we need to make sure blind toddlers get belt canes whether their parents can afford to purchase them or not!
