So, I find the term sort of a misnomer, because even when things are babyproof, you still need to watch the baby all the time. Ours has already figured out how to remove the protective outlet covers from the outlets. That said, I have found one amazing babyproofing aid: the retractable baby gate, as found at I'm not sure this link works, but if you google retractable baby gate, it should pop up. It folds away into nothing when baby is in bed, but allows us to use our living room without worry that she will fall down the stairs :).

Thumbs up. I can't tell you how awesome this is. I'm thinking about valentine's day stuff for tomorrow's post, but right now, the miracle of the baby gate is too awesome not to share :)


  1. thanks for sharing, baby proofing in my near future.

  2. Oooooh that baby is on the move! Baby Coco is into EVERYTHING.

  3. We replaced our outlet covers with ones that have a sliding guard. We got them at lowes. You change the whole cover, and then you don't lose anything. Even Nana took a while to figure them out.
