Here are our top 10 areas to concentrate on when baby-proofing, and some tips to help you keep your little one safe. Stairs First things first, if you have stairs in your home, install baby safety gates.  A tumble down the stairs can cause serious injury to your little explorer!  You never know when your baby will start crawling, so do yourself a favour and install gates for the top of your stairs while you're getting the nursery set up. Kidco Safeway gates are great, because they're designed with quick release hardware that lets you pop out the gate and store it safely, leaving the hardware installed. Then, once baby's...
