Here are some of the highlights of the babyproofing tips from the video:

1. Safety Gates

Mesh gates fit broader spaces great and they retract, so are definitely more discreet! They are also pretty taut so keep little ones out of trouble.

2. Child Safety Locks

Magnetic locks work better than plastic ones and are again discreet. I bought little felt stickers that I placed where the magnets are, so we know where to hover over.

3. Crib Rail Covers

Felt crib covers are great to cover the rails as your children get through the teething stage and want to gnaw on everything!

4. Play Yard Rails and Covers

A play yard is a must-have for a toddler who is busy walking and exploring. I can place my twin toddlers in the play yard and know that they are safe as I run off to the bathroom! A cover for the play yard is important and you can use a felt one with strings to tie around the fence.
