Here is the evolution!
Set up #1:
|First baby set up when they first learned to crawl/walk.|
Set up #2 (Opened up the space a bit, kept "safe zone" in living room with TV where kids couldn't get). We also blocked off the kitchen for a while but took out the kitchen gate eventually to give them more room to roam.
|Gate between living room and entry way.|
|#2: Gate across the room block TV area.|
|Gate blocking lamp (not always effective!)|
|TV watching increases lol. The magic of Disney.|
|Fire place child proofing!|
