Babyproofing Through the Ages

When we were getting ready for Baby C’s arrival, we wondered whether we should begin babyproofing at the same time, or at least as soon as she arrived. All the babyproofing guides were super extensive, and after reading a few, we decided that until Baby C could realistically get hurt by something (aka, until she […]

Our Munchkin Loft Safety Gate – The Best Gate Ever!

We live in a small 2 bedroom ranch, and initially we hoped that we would be able to get by without purchasing any safety gates.
