Yes, see that image above? That is what is called an extra tall baby gate that I purchased with my Amazon Gift Codes, it was cheap only about $67 to get it delivered and well with Amazon Gift Codes it was no cost out of my pocket so worth a try. Let’s back this story up a bit, a week or so ago my two year old learned how to get out of his crib, prior to that my four year old was getting out of his bed mid night and climbing in our bed. Mind you the four year old was very quiet about it because I would wake up to him in the bed but not be woken up when he attempted to climb into our bed. Basically the boy is lucky because I would have walked him back to his bed if we woke me up.
The two year old also learned how to shimmy up the current hinged like a door baby gate we have. It’s about 26″ tall and not sure how tall he is but that doesn’t matter, it is the style of baby gate that sucks. The kid is a monkey or something, he can climb anything … he puts his little toddler toes right into that gate and climbs up with all his might, then gracefully plops over the gate onto the floor standing on his two feet. The kids is a genius!
Hubby and I were talking about what we can do to keep the boys in their bedroom because after all it is not safe to have a four and two year old wandering the house by themselves, really! Especially our sons, they are curious little boys! Usually my sons will wake us up but not always and that is dangerous. We have no clue what time they actually wake up from their slumber. I have set my alarm for as early as 5am and had them not be awake, then tried 6 or so and they would be awake. It’s never the same time and since I work nights as well as the hubby we like to sleep until at least 6 or 7am if possible.
So I am going to have this baby gate set up by the hubs and we hope that these boys will not get out of this one! Do you have little climbers in your home? Have you found a baby gate that they can’t climb or get through? I am really hoping this Regalo Easy Step Extra Tall Walk Thru Gate is our answer to the problem at hand!
