We just got possession of our new house and I started freaking out because when we took Amadeo to there he very enthusiastically started opening EVERY kitchen cupboard and B-lining it right to all the stair cases. I knew that with the parenting approach I’ve been going with since Amadeo was mobile (the sort of laissez-faire approach) I would need to baby proof this home with permanent fixtures, the tape on the cupboards and pressure gate wouldn’t cut it.
You are used to by now me admitting that I’m not an expert on most thing not child education related, and I truly am of the belief that if their are services provided by experts in your area, to hire them. It takes away the guessing, the questions and millions of different opinions on those mom Facebook groups, saves you time from researching and honestly and most importantly to me, gives you peace of mind that something will be done right the first time. No trial and error here.
I knew after I hired Safety Mavens for our at home car seat installation that they would be a perfect fit. (and are the only company in Ottawa who provides this service) They are a wife, husband duo who run the business and a pleasure to work with. They also service Toronto residents.

We had a consultation and found the right fit for our Safety Proofing needs with our family. Its important to do this step because everyone’s home, lifestyle and parenting style is different. It’s great to get a second opinion and recommendations from a professional in regards to child safety.
At the moment our safety needs are:
Installation of a fixed gate at the top of the stairs going to the basement.
Installation of a gate ( we chose fixed and pull adjustable because of the size of the opening) at the bottom of our stairwell on our main floor.
Installation of a fixed gate at the top of our stairs on the top floor.
Magnetic locks (due to the style of our cabinet and the modern look I was going for in my home design) on all of our lower cabinets and pantry.
Here are a couple quick videos of the Installation process.
The products that were installed in my home were gifted to My Little Lamb by, BUYBUYBABY CANADA.

So far all of these products are FANTASTIC and have done exactly what was promised!
Amadeo has given up even trying to open the kitchen cabinets and these locks will also be installed in the playroom once the doors are in.
He cant open any of the gates on the stairs and they are SO easy for me to open up one handed, also BONUS they look AMAZING in my space, and that’s important to me.
Thank you Safety Mavens for such a pleasurable consult and installation, mess free and such a beautiful finished product that works!
Thank you BUYBUYBABY CANADA for providing the awesome products!
Now Amadeo is safe and my sanity is saved!
