Safety Gate for Bryan

We hoped over to Babyland @ SS2 to check out some safety gates. Lindam's was going at RM50 off, so it only cost RM149.90 for a basic unit instead of the usual RM199.90. We had to add on an extension to make it up to 110cm in width cos my staircase is pretty wide.

If I really want to be extra safe, I need 4 sets of these cos I have stairs that are going both upstairs and downstairs.

We have also decided to add clear polycarbonate sheets to my staircase railings, so that my "hero" wont have any opportunity to put his foot on those railings and try to be super or spideyman!

He is in the "jumping" phase now. Jump from bed to the floor, jump from one chair to another, jump from first staircase to the next and all the way down to the last staircase. Jump even when walking. Meaning he does not walk step by step. He jumps step by step. *pening*

my experience tells me you don't have to invest too much in child safety. He'll grow up and what are you going to do with the polycarbonate sheet on the staircase ?
We tailor made the railings upstairs so she won't climb over the sofa and over the railing etc and guess what ? After moving in for 8 months, she can climb stairs steadily and do not need much supervision. There are other safety aspects to look out for too, eg.. if you keep him away from kitchen, is there anyone looking after him in the living area ? He'll also find other stuff to amuse himself, my girl climbed and toyed with the dining chair and fell back hitting her chin and got a cut.. What I'm saying is, with safety items, we still need to keep an eye on them 100% until they are almost close to 4 and know the meaning of DANGER ! Good luck !

What Elaine said is very true. When we moved to our old house 3 years ago, hubby invested RM400+ on a safety door which was custom-made at the split level. Huh, that door posed more hazard than w/o a door coz my #2 monkey climbed on that door and the corner of the door was very sharp. A few mths later, we tore the door down!!! We need to watch over our little monkeys like a hawk until they are 3 or 4 yo and knows what danger is. This also depends on the child. At almost 5yo, my #2 is still fearless of danger.

Yes, it is good to get a safety gate.
For mine, I just get the cheapest type, but it is quite usable:-)
