Large custom sectional baby safety gate in Rancho Bernardo For most parents who begin thinking about childproofing their home, a baby gate is the first item that comes to mind. If the house is in fact equipped with stairs, it is almost certain that sooner or later your baby is going to want to climb them. It is always best when installing a child safety gate to place one both at the top and at the bottom of the stairs, to prevent as much as possible the risk of falls. The best time to install a child safety gate is before your child starts crawling and walking, which is usually around the time your child turns six or seven months old. The gates must then remain in place until your child is old enough to know how to safely walk up and down them without the need for adult supervision. Pictured below is a large custom sectional child safety gate installed by Baby Safe Homes San Diego at the bottom of a flight of stairs.
