Just thought I'd try here to see if anyone has any words of advice.
We have 2 levels, plus a basement. Bedrooms/bathroom is upstairs.
Main floor has the kitchen and a living room. Basement has a
laundry room and like a rumpus room.
We have baby gates at the top of the stairs going to the basement,
as well as at the bottom of the stairs going upstairs. The problem
is the top of the stairs upstairs, where the bedrooms are.
I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions for the top of the
stairs going to the upstairs. An easy fix is another baby gate.
Issue with that is that's not really possible. The top of the
stairs is against only 1 wall - there's about a 2' space between the
very top of the stairs and the wall on the opposite side of the
stairs. It's kind of hard to explain, but to keep is short and as
simple as possible, the 2 walls at the very top of the stairs do not
match up at all. A baby gate would have nothing to latch to on the
opposite wall it was mounted on.
I also have an issue with that little space (the 2 or so feet) that
the wall doesn't match up. There's just a hole there. It's kind of
a concern for me, but I have no idea how to fix it. I am willing to
try just about anything that would be safe to fix this.
Thanks for the pics! I had *no* idea what you were talking about!!!
First of all, I do think it would be a good idea to block off that
hole somehow with a piece of railing.
Second, you might not need to block the top at all if the baby is only
up their for nap and sleeping and you can keep a closed door between
him and the stairs.
Third, I agree with Ericka, putting the gate two or three steps down
would be just fine.
