I've been googling and there seems to be a few ways to baby proof drawers, was wondering what people found most effective/ product recommendations? Thanks!

DH has duct taped the bedroom ones closed... <<helpful>> grin

Otherwise, what is your little one into? I've found that by letting DS have a cupboard he can go in, he mostly leaves the rest alone.

We didn't bother tbh. We just took the knives and bleach and stuff and put it higher up.
In the living room though I did use a bobble to fasten the doors together on the TV cabinet!

We actually have an old cushion strapped to a particularly sharp corner on the coffee table, so I'm not averse to a bit of diy!

It's a particular piece of furniture she's into at the moment, the contents of which aren't dangerous. She opens the drawer then pulls herself up though so that is what I want to stop happening!

I took the handles off the dangerous drawers in the kitchen and bathroom. I have broken all of my nails but 11mo DS is yet to work it out. smile

Genius! That could work...

Can you secure the piece of furniture to the wall? Or put something in front of it so she can't get to it? Otherwise, shiteforbrains has your solution wink
