Nothing is better than having my twin grandsons visit. They are so adorable and fun to watch as they play and interact with each other. Being toddlers they are busy and can go running in different directions making it difficult to keep both of them in sight at the same time.
But, they are at that age where they are into everything and want to go everywhere. It’s hard enough to chase after one little toddler, never mind two, and they’re fast. That’s when the safety stair gates come out. My children always liked to scramble up the stairs but would get stuck at the top, afraid to come down. It’s scary to look up and see your toddler at the top of the stairs.
We always put the safety stair gates at the bottom and the top of the staircase. It was a little inconvenient for us, but it was worth it to make sure nobody took a tumble down the stairs. As a former EMT, I can say I saw my share of children who were injured because of falls. Nobody wants to end up in the emergency room with their toddler because they fell down the stairs. Especially when it could easily be prevented by installing some safety stair gates.
As much as we keep an eye on our children, there are times when they are out of eyesight and even more so when you are trying to keep track of two children. How many safety stair gates do you, or did you, have up for your toddlers?
