Ugh! It must be something with that generation, because they mostly do not believe in baby proofing.....our parents think they should just learn that "No means No." Its very unrealistic and frustrating! So to answer the question......No.
My mother babyproofed her house a bit... added a gate at the stairs, removed her most breakables from the low tables.. but that is about it...so we still need to watch the kids when we are there... The IL's and my Dad have not made any changes to their homes.
Not really. My mom would put dangerous stuff up if we were over. But she would never get mad if they got into something that they shouldn't have. Rich's mom ran a day care out of her home when Noah and Abby were young so her house was PRETTY much baby proofed.

So ditto! Many times it's a lot more work on my part when visiting the grandparents and not so relaxing at all.
My mom and dad put a baby gate up at the top of the stairs when we come to visit. (They live in a bi-level.) They started doing that when Kira was old enough to crawls, and they will continue to do it until I tell them to stop.
I think they may have also covered the exposed outlets in the den, where we put the Pack N Play when we visit.
Other than that, no baby-proofing at my parents' house and none at all at either set of in-laws'. I do actually agree with the "no means no" philosophy, though. As long as it's not something overtly dangerous, of course.
Nope! Well, Kaeli has never been in my MIL's house- she needs to start with cleaning before she worries about babyproofing! My parents have a gate that we use to block off the basement stairs if we need to, but it doesnt get used much (there is a door at the top, so we only need it if we are downstairs and need to block off the bottom).
We actually havent really done any babyproofing in our house either, except for a few outlet plugs in Kaeli's room and around the crib in our room. Which is a good thing after Kaeli decided to stick a tweezer in an outlet at my parents house yesterday!
No not really. However my Mom will move breakable things but that's about it. MIL doesn't have much out (breakable) when they come over and doors are shut.....however she watches and plays with the boys non-stop when we come over. We hardly have to watch them at all. She's wonderful with them!
