  • We put everything up & out of the way... and we also put up gates around our living room so that she was contained in a small area that was safe & fuss free for us..

  • Take everything you dont want her to get to or into and lock it up, put things out of sight, putting things up high are not always a good idea when they learn to climb, so out of sight and locked away is a good place to start, shut the doors to the bathroom and bedrooms you dont want her in, buy plug ins to keep her from putting things in the outlets, buy saftey latches for the cabinets.

  • Either put it all away or put her in a play pen
    You could also block of part of the room w/ furniture and keep her i just one section.

  • Put it out of reach.
    Put locks on it.
    Patience, patience, patience. She'll slowly learn what is and isn't allowed. Then she'll start to realize that the rules change as she gets older. Patience, patience, patience.

    And I'd either modify or delete this question - you should NEVER post your email on a public site. Spammers have special search engines that scan these sites and harvest any emails they find.
