None at all It's kind of overwhelming to think about because there is so much we will need to do. We have computers and other electronics everywhere, and there are a million cords and wires all over the place. I'm not sure what to do about all of them. The easy stuff will be covering the outlets and getting gates for the stairs, and maybe a couple gates to block off the kitchen. We already keep cleaning supplies and whatnot in high cupboards so I don't think we'll need any latches for those.
we've been babyproofed for 4 years since Nolan started crawling
I have: plug covers, no hanging cords, locks on all kitchen and undersink cupboards, spinners on bathrooms while they're toddling, baby gates on bottom of stairs, locks turned around on bedroom doors, all harsh chemicals are either in the garage or high up on a top shelf in the laundry room, spinners on outside doors so they can't wander out
Have you done any babyproofing in your house/apartment?
What have you done?
Any other babyproofing you are planning to do?
I have baby gates up that confine her to the kitchen, living room, master bedroom and bath. It cuts her off from the stairs and dining room - I also have a gate at the top of the stairs. I put the nice sliding outlet covers on our two most prominent outlets. I have the cover things on the stove knobs.
It is about time I put doorknob covers on and also the things to keep her from opening the oven door (not that she does, but that she's big enough to do it and that would be awful.)
She's easy - mostly a climber. Her little BFF is into freaking EVERYTHING and I am so glad she is not. He's in the stove, in the freezer, in the trash, in the toilet - ugh!!!!

None and we need to do a lot.
Our house has several stairwells and a bridge/hall type thing that were built back in the 70s. AKA: back before child safe building codes.
The railings on all of them are spaced too far apart and as soon as our babe becomes mobile, he will tumble to his death. My husband is supposed to be getting lumber to fix this but still hasn't. He thinks we have tons of time, but I'm scared that he'll forget until the day our kid is lying in a pool of blood.
