When a new baby comes into our lives, we must do everything possible to make our home safe for the new little one. There are several items and pieces of equipment on the market today that protect our little darlings from danger, from escape, and from themselves. One of the most useful and practical items that every home can use is a baby nursery gate. Baby nursery gates are plastic or wooden gates which attach to walls and doorways in order to prevent a mobile baby from entering an area that might pose a danger, or that we simply don’t want him to enter. Baby nursery gates were first invented as rickety wooden contraptions designed to keep a baby from falling down or crawling up a staircase. There are a lot of types of child safety gates that you could pick from. A baby nursery gate could fit on your stair tops and your doorway or could stand on its own.
The older safety baby nursery gates were accordion-styled. These were recalled since they could trap babied in their v-shaped openings in the body. However, contemporary types of baby gates now come in wood, metal, plastic or cloth. They could swing to be opened or slide or roll out. They would have flat surfaces, not providing that toe-hold for the toddler and prevent accidents. And which baby gate to use in your house all depends on where you’re putting the baby gate, how your house was built and how it looks like inside.
