When a baby starts to crawl you know you need to get everything in order. I wasn’t one of those super prepared mums with locks on all doors or corners covered with pads. The whole idea of baby proofing can be quite daunting. You start to worry you’ve missed little things and your precious little bubba will hurt themself. Jasper has bumped his head several times already, fallen down a step and fallen off the bed. One thing that has helped us massively is the use of baby gates. We have them on entry to our kitchen, covering both exits to the lounge and now one at the top of our stairs. Jasper loves to be crawling and exploring and these are small ways to help maintain his safety as he finds his feet.
The Safety 1st securtech™ flat step metal gate has been an ideal addition to our home for securing safe area sin our home. It was relatively easy to fit, albeit I’m clueless with these things and struggle to secure anything. We used absolutely no screws and didn’t have to drill (HOORAH)! Thanks to the sticky adhesive points and the pressure fit of the gate it was easy and no walls were damaged.
The opening of the gate is wide, which is fabulous for when you’re heading up and down the stairs with your washing as sometimes they can obstruct the space. You can also buy additional extension add ons for those folks with a wider space.
The gate is made out of metal meaning it’s very strong for those babies who, like Jasper like to try destroy frail frames! I’ m sure this will keep him from exploring the staircase.
If you like this particular stair gate, you can pick it up at Mothercare for £30.00.
Have you been baby proofing your home? What would you recommend for me? Or perhaps you can suggest a product to avoid?
