  • I will leave my 2 yo alone to play in his room while I'm cleaning, and sometimes I will leave my 7 month old in there with him for a few minutes, but not for an extended period of time.

  • Well, I only have one child (he's 3), but yup. The door is open and he comes and goes as he pleases. It's his room. If I had a younger child I would say, less than 18 months, I might not.....but other than that, yup.

  • I love toys that make noise. I place them all around the room while i'm cleaning . If I don't hear noise, I go check to see what she's doing.
