We love the BabyDan Guard Me retractable stair gate, it’s the perfect gate for stairs as it really doesn’t get in the way. It is a folding stair gate which means it doesn’t stick out, it sits nicely near the wall. It also retracts automatically when you unclick it, you just need to ‘control’ or guide it back into place. It’s very easy, not likely to trap fingers.
- It pulls right back ✔️
- It is easy to use ✔️
- It’s one handed! ✔️
- It seems very sturdy – she it hangs off it! ✔️
- It has lasted for over two years with daily use ✔️
We had recently stopped using the gate all the time to let Toddler H be more independent now she is 3, however, it’s now firmly back in use! 🙉 See my last Instagram post if you want to see why!

DETERMINED 🙉 This little one just loves to crawl out to the hall and try to climb the stairs. Just after this she tried to put her knee up. She's just determined to do things when her sister did or before. Little monkey 🐒 I might have to start calling her Little Monkey, it seems a much better name 😂 P.S. Yes we do have stair gates everywhere, we just need to use them again! 😂 . . . . . . . #crawling #7monthsold #baby babyspam
We’ve a few other tricks to share so do check back, or have a look at how I first did baby proofing when Toddler H started to crawl – baby proofing tips of a first time mum!
We also tried some new kitchen cupboard locks once H was toddling about which were great, just make sure you clean the area the pad will be stuck really really well – Magnetic kitchen cupboard locks
Meanwhile, have fun chasing your crawling little one! I know I’d forgotten how relentless they can be!
