Children are naturally curious and adventurous. Although this is of course a good thing, it may also put them in unnecessary danger. This is the reason why baby proofing is very important. Baby proofing refers to a wide range of activities that are designed to keep the child safe as he or she explores all over the house.
One of the most common baby proofing items used these days is actually the extra wide baby gate. Baby gates are mostly installed on the staircase. Kids who are yet to walk or those who have just learned to do it will not be able to climb up or down the stairs. There is always a very huge risk that the child can fall over and roll down leading to significant injuries. A baby gate ensures that this doesn't happen. It closes access to the staircase for the kid making sure they are at least safe from potential falls. Extra wide baby gates feature a wide variety of designs.
However, it's important to consider a few tips before you buy. First, the gate must have options to screw it deep into the wall. This will enhance the safety even further. In case you have a wider staircase than standard designs, consider getting gates that come with extensions to cover up this space.
The gates should always remain installed on the stairs until a point where you are 100% confident the kid can walk up and down the stairs safely.
