Is your house baby proof??
If not, when do you plan on doing it (if your going to)??

(borrowed from April 2012 PR)

We have a 2 year old so our house is aready baby proofed. We had to baby proof because Jackson gets into everything. If we didn't have the kitchen cabinets baby proofed he would pull everything out and put his toys in there, then climb in and make his own little hideaway. This is what he did right when we moved into our new house before it was baby proofed.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

We have a lot of the house "earthquake proofed" which is similar to baby proofed (latches on the cabinets so glasses won't spill out onto the floor, bookshelves and TVs bolted to the wall, etc).

We still have to do a few kitchen cabinets and get stair gates etc but I figure that can wait until she's mobile.

My almost 4 year old is past the baby proof stage ( except we still have all outlets covered) so once Sofia becomes mobile, we will again start the baby proofing. We never baby proofed our kitchen with my first because we just taught him the kitchen was off limits and he never went in there...so hopefully we can do that again with Sofia.

*Thank you AlexKatieAidenMommy for my awesome siggie*

Our house is not baby proofed. Jake doesn't really get into anything anymore. Once Jax starts getting mobile, we will immediately baby proof the dangerous places (chemicals, etc) and then maybe some other places once we find out which ones drive us the most bonkers. With Jake, he always emptied out the canned goods and we got tired of putting them back

We still have most outlets covered and some cabinet locks left on from having the girls. That's pretty much all we do.

I will be starting all over. Damon never messed with much. Slater got into everything. I will do outlets. The big brick fireplace that sticks out. For sure something to keep him out of the boys room. They have too many small things like Legos.

Thanks PrincessMom08 for my wonderful siggy!

Thanks to Claire1979 for the terrific siggy!

We have to start all over. We are just gating the kitchen though. We will cover outlets and put up a fireplace guard. Oh yeah, and close the bathroom door at all times- I learned that the hard way with Chase. Why are infants and toddlers do fascinated with the germy bathroom? Drove me nuts!!!!

Thanks so much *Kiliki* for my awesome summer siggie!

My son just turned 2, so everything is already babypoofed. We haven't done the cabinets though, so we might do those if Norah(once she's older) likes to get into them.

Considering the baby can't move yet it's perfectly baby proofed. Ours is toddler-proof. I never did a big one-time thing... I just changed things as we needed to, moving things higher up, etc.
