We are moving hopefully next month. The owner of the house was talking with us and telling us all about the things he did to baby proof the house which included baby gates, socket covers, and childproof locks on the cabinets. He offered to keep all those things there since he and his wife divorced and he no longers has the children.
I told him no. We don't need to baby proof stuff. We didn't baby proof anything other than the sockets when she realized she could stick stuff in them. We just taught her what she could and could not get into and kept an eye on her so we could catch her if she tried to do something she wasn't supposed to.
Did you baby proof?
If so, why and are you happy you did so?
If no, why and do you wish you had?
