DS has been able to open doors since he was about 14 months old. He has been able to unlock them since around 16 months. So we have had our issues keeping him out of rooms and inside the house. As soon as he hears someone knock on the door he will go open it. He lets the dog outside and other things.
Along with doors we have had our issues with anything that is suppose to baby proof includeing baby gates. He can open the latch ones and the ones with the arm across the middle. So we bought one at Target that is solid across the middle but you can see through it. So he can't climb it. It also has a peice on the top you have to slide across and pull up at the sametime to open. he can't undo this one so we have been able to keep him blocked in places. It's been a miricle worker at nap time.
Well it's nap time now and he got out. You wanna know how? He pushed until the bottow came loose and the whole baby gate flips up like the trunk of a car. I'm out here folding laundry and he comes running saying "ha ha I see you!"
I couldn't help but laugh when I seen how he got out. Guess he showed us to spend 30 bucks on a baby gate, LOL.
