To baby proof the house.. or not to baby proof the house, that is the question. Seriously, this has been bothering me for the past few weeks now that Everett is able to open the cabinet doors and drawers. He is a pretty good listener for an 11 month old but I am getting tired of saying "no" all the time. I don't want to be "that" mom that is always nagging after her kid!
I want Everett to have a safe place where he can have fun and enjoy playing without having to be constantly moved away from things that he wants to get into that he shouldn't be getting into. Right now, our living room is set up to be a playroom of sorts however there are still a few things that I do not want him to play in. How do you keep your kids from getting into things? If I baby proof everything will he ever learn to not get into things? If I don't baby proof will I be rearranging my house and cabinets for eternity?
What are y'alls thoughts on baby proofing? Did you go through attempting to teach your children not to get into things or did you buy all the gear and baby proof your house?
