so even as i write this i have gotten up 3 times to pick her up and put her back in the middle of the room. and that was just that sentence. okay i have a crawler who just started and i don't want to hold her back by not letting her venture, so therefore i have began baby proofing, what i thought was okay, the things i pushed back under the coffee table, now just makes her climb into the coffee table and she would do it if i would let her. My parents came up this past weekend, and said eventually the coffee table and end tables would have to go. she climbs into them and they have really sharp corners and he said when she does start walking she could have her arm in one of those holes, fall and break it., i don't know even typing this is hard me, i want her to crawl and use her muscles but she goes everywhere i don't want her to , the front entrance which is dirty from the snowy mats, my hubby's chemical covered shoes, i get on my hands and needs and wipe the ( hold on she just crawled their agian) floor, but those nasty mats i don't want her touching them, maybe i can remove them during the day when i know no one will be coming in or out for awhile. but what a pain in the ass to do that everytimeI DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO? i bought a gate but the damn thing don't even hold up right. Any advice on childproofing a home?
