We look forward to the day where our little ones learn to crawl, and quickly that crawling leads to walking and walking somehow turns into running. For me it has always been something that I swear happens overnight which leaves me little time to prepare and get the house “baby proofed.”
My top 4 items I think that is a must have when baby proofing are:
• Outlet Covers
• Cabinet Locks
• Corner Guards for tables
• Baby/Safety Gate
The first three are easy to buy and you can pretty much buy any brand and it’ll do the trick but when purchasing a baby gate it is important to purchase a good one. It can be a little overwhelming with all the different brands and styles out there but trust me… you do not want to buy a cheap gate. It’ll save you loads of frustrations by purchasing a well made baby gate the first time around.
We are big fans of Summer Infant in our house. We used their products with both of our kids and highly recommend their baby gate!
Summer Infant has a wide variety of baby gates to match any home’s structure and decor. Our favorite is the Stylish&Secure™ Extra Tall Decorative Walk-Thru Gate. Not only is this an absolutely beautiful and modern baby gate, but it is completely easy to assemble and put up. Another HUGE bonus is that depending on where you are putting the gate up at, you may not need to use any screws! Our last baby gate ruined the hallway wall (and yes we even used drywall anchors). I also like the freedom you get without having your gate mounted to the wall. I like being able to move the gate around or bring it to my parents when they are watching the children. Another great feature is that the gate can be used at the top or bottom of the stairs and comes with hardware to secure it in place.
This specific Summer Infant gate is pressure-mounted. So no holes in our walls anymore! I was surprised at how secure and stable the gate is with this method but take a look for yourself:
There is no way that gate is coming down. We even had our 5 year old test it and it wouldn’t budge!
Summer Infant has really put a lot of time and thought into their baby gates. Not only is the door on the gate completely easy for adults to open, but the hinged door swings easily in either direction with one hand. It also swings closed automatically.
The gate comes with extra rod panels so you can adjust your gate to fit openings from 28” to 48” wide.
