as miss a can now crawl and make her way around the house, i am going to need to baby-proof the kitchen cupboards. at the moment i am using rubber bands

not too fussed about the break-ables as they arent really in reach, my main concern is the cupboard under the sink containng cleaning products etc.

are there any cupboard lock thingys that you would reccommend?

TY

We haven't had to do any baby-proofing yet as E isn't mobile.

I do know there is one particular brand of things that baby shops and k-mart/bigW stores have that cover everything and all types of doors etc.

A lady came to talk to our mothers group from Kidsafe, and they recommended putting EVERYTHING in high-up cupboards, but I'm not sure we have a cupboard in the house that will fit all the cleaning stuff - we can keep washing liquid on the window ledge, but I hadn't ever considered moving the other stuff.

We have had to cat-proof a few cupboards after our cat learnt to open them all, and self-cater if we didn't wake up promptly enough to give him breakfast rolleyes.gif

I must ask my parents what they did because I don't think they baby-proofed any of their cupboards when I was little.

We still haven't baby proofed most of our cupboards. He tends to get into one repeatedly for a few days, and then gets bored and gives up. We've moved anything really precious/breakable, and it's done the trick.

We also haven't locked our 'under the sink' chemical cupboard yet, which I must say we've been meaning to do for ages- he just has shown no interest whatsoever in the kitchen cupboards, so I keep forgetting!

Some friends have these magnet things that seem to work really well - I'll have to look at getting some myself. I don't know the name of them but I am sure that someone here will. The only tip I have from friends if you do use them is to get two of the magnet opener thingys as they have all closed cupboard doors with them in there and have had to wait until they have bought a new opener to be able to get back into their cupboards.

We got ones that you have to screw in or glue on. They are both from the 'Dream Baby' brand which is in Kmart/Big W etc. Most cleaning products are in a really high cupboard in the laundry. The few things I have left in the kitchen is in the only cupboard I still lock. I allowed my boys access to a couple of drawers and cupboards and so they don't seem to bother with the other ones.

I have just started baby proofing and found a $20 pack in T@rget that is great!

Comes with the power point covers, two plastic locks for fridge/shower door etc, a few cushion thingies for sharp corners, two foam block things to stop slamming doors, safety latches for cupboards as well (two different types) - which has been fantastic.

Now all I need are the little magnetic drawer locks for our drawers!
