Babies need your full attention and there’s no room for taking chances as a parent, that’s why we all like to take as much safety precautions as we can for our child. Like all parents you will want to make sure your child is safe 24/7, but at the same time that’s impossible. All you can do is make sure you are around as much as you possibly can, never leave them unattended and make sure you have some safety measures in place. One of those safety measures we recommend is a baby stair gate. You should NEVER leave a child near open stairs as this will only end in disaster, as can be seen regularly in the news. You want to get a sturdy gate that will protect and stop your baby going anywhere near the stairs. There’s lots of different options online to choose from, so first check out a guide to the best baby gates for stairs. You want to ensure that you get an adjustable gate that actually fits your stairs, most models are adjustable and cover a good space. Getting the right fit and dimensions for your stairs is a tricky task though, and around 50% of the people that buy a stair gate to protect their child return it due to being the wrong size. Stair gates can be bought relatively cheaply and are very affordable, however you really don’t want to compromise on quality. The worse thing that could happen is you buy a poor quality model and it ends up failing. Just check out some gate reviews online and see what the best rated manufacturer is for them, that’ll give you a better idea as to which model to spend your money on. A little tip if you want to save money on one is to buy a pet stair gate for a dog or cat, you can easily get a less expensive model, but again you have to ensure it is adequate enough for your needs. We hope this has convinced you to buy a stair gate for your child, and have laid out some points to consider when buying one. There really is no reason not to get one, and it could end up saving your child’s life.
