During the last year my baby girl has changed from being a tiny little baby who couldn’t even lift her head, to a happy girl who is curious and on the move! Her first birthday is fast approaching and the milestone will not only be celebrated by a party, but by an increase in baby-proofing so she can escape the play area and explore the house using her new found skills.
Our living area is open plan, so baby gates will be a sanity saver now that her curiosity is increasing. She is our second child, the gates had been down for about a year until recently so it is interesting getting used to them again.
The Dreambaby Magnetic Sure-Close Gate was recently installed in our kitchen and it does have a few additional features which our old gate doesn’t have. It’s silver which suits our stainless steel and grey / white colour scheme and isn’t glaringly obvious when you walk in the front door.

The gate tells you when it is locked with a green indicator and if it is unlocked it’s red – piece of mind for multitasking parents like myself! The special magnetic design allows the gate to automatically close itself and there is a triple locking feature that even the most dedicated toddlers won’t be able to master.
One of my favourite features is that you can set it to stay open (no propping a chair against it when you need to go in and out). The gate can open both ways, or just one – you choose! Relatively easy to install, there are extra extensions if your opening is too wide and once it’s in there is a sturdiness and ease of use that will give you a sense of comfort.
If you have your gate at the top or bottom of stairs, Dreambaby have a new must have accessory. It’s called the Watch-the-Step™ Gate Ramp and fits under the gate so you don’t constantly hit your toes or tripping over. There is also grip so that it sits securely and doesn’t damage your floors.
A great first step in babyproofing your home and keeping your children safe. Accidents can happen so quickly and having those dangerous areas like the kitchen, stairs and bathrooms blocked off can be extremely important.
