baby gate, need extra wide, where to find

i have double french doors in baby's room
normal gates can not reach the width
anyone else have double opening and found a good sturdy gate?

i have very low window in her bedroom 2nd floor(sill 12 inches from floor)and i think i want to gate off in warm months, i think that she could fall thru screen
any ideas on this, any problems if heaven forbid fire and the firefighter has to enter thru this window or would this be no obstacle for a firefighter

  • toys r us, babies r us. a lot of online places have extra wide ones. as for the gate in the window, i would get one that screws into the wall. call ur fire dept and ask them if it would be an issue with them getting in or whatever. i'm really not sure but you wouldn't want to find out the hard way!
