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.
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.
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.
