If you had asked me, before I had kids, how many baby gates I thought I’d end up using, I definitely would not have guessed that I would end up purchasing three different types of safety gates for our first child alone! Not until I had a mobile baby who was curious and wanted to get into everything did I truly appreciate the value a stable, secure gate added to our home.
Finding the right baby gate for your space is just one part of baby-proofing your house, but it’s certainly an important one, especially if you have a multi-level home. There isn’t one gate that’s right for every spot in your house, so I’ve got the rundown on the different types of gates and top recommendations for each category to get you started.
If you already know what type of gate you are looking for, you can jump ahead to see my recommendations for each type.
