Have you "baby-proofed" your home? Or do you mostly watch your baby & re-direct them?

Watch and re-direct. I mean, we are a lot more careful about leaving stuff laying around and stuff like that but we arent going insane, I dunno just being careful. I know he will get hurt tho, thats what kids do.

Totally watch and redirect here. We still have many of the outlets covered due to Stella, but that is about all the babyproofing we have!

Watch and re-direct as well We actually never ever purchased any baby-proofing stuff like outlet plugs, cabinet thingies, etc. because my girls weren't trouble makers. Sebastian is A LOT more into getting into everything, but so far, I've just been able to remove him from the situation and re-direct. We'll see how it goes! I am big on teaching "no" and "stop" from early on.

I've baby-proofed as much as possible, I still watch and re-direct though...like if he tries to pull up on the bar-stools for example. They don't tip but i don't wanna take a chance

lock stuff and redirect
More fundamental than religion is our basic human spirituality. We have a basic human disposition towards love, kindness and affection, irrespective of whether we have a religious framework or not. When we nurture this most basic human resource – when we set about cultivating those basic inner values which we all appreciate in others, then we start to live spiritually. - Dalai Lama

We haven't baby proofed much. We mostly do stop and redirect but the things that could really hurt her we have baby proofed. We put covers on the outlets and pick up things like the cats toys that she could choke on. She just started opening cabinets so I want to put a lock on the one under the sink that has all the cleaning supplies.

We already have the outlets covered & the cabinet lock thingys on from DS1. I haven't done anything "extra" since Jason's been on the move. I just redirect. I'm big on allowing him to explore so I don't want to keep him out of much. It will just make it all the more interesting. LOL

Oh wait!.. at dinnertime I do put up a gate so he can't come in the kitchen while I'm cooking. I worry I would drop a knife on his head or something.

She is super persistent... We have two gates so she has to stay in one side of the house. We did put locks on the cabinets and drawers so she won't get fingers stuck and covered outlets. Oh, and we tethered a few pieces of furniture to walls. E know two families who lost toddlers when they pulled large items down. Scary.

I thought we were still ok from David, but I forgot about all of his toys. So we have had to do a lot of moving toys to David's room.
