We are (hopefully) days away from moving into our 1st (purchased… in 78 years) home! It’s also the first place where I will need to child proof. It has stairs and my little love is into everything! I believe in child proofing for obvious safety reasons, but at the same time I don’t want everything to be protected with duck tape. I want my child to learn what is acceptable and safe to play with, and what is not.
- Two gates for the stairs- or maybe just one? One at the top most definitely.
- Cabinet locks
- Blind holders (things to hold blinds in so they don’t dangle)
I think I want one that mounts in the wall (?) so I don’t have to worry about it. It’s going to be there for a long while, I imagine. And one that is easy to open so I don’t have to step over it with a baby on my hip! Knee pedal, foot pedal, elbow pedal? Oh Lord I need to hire someone to do this stuff.
