Giveaway #17 is for another essential baby proofing item, designed to protect your house and your child from each other!

THE PRIZE

safety-1st-nature-next-bamboo-gateSafety 1st is sponsoring AGAIN! They’re giving one reader their new Nature Next Bamboo Safety Gate ($23).

MY REVIEW

Just like the Bamboo Booster seat, the Nature Next Bamboo Gate is made from that eco-friendly, rapidly replenishing, natural bamboo that looks great and is “green” as well. The panels are 100% recycled, and I love the black!

This gate fits door and hallways anywhere from 28 – 42 inches wide, so pretty much anywhere you need to restrict access, this gate will do the job. The pressure mounted system makes setting it up and moving it around fast and easy, and is very effective at keeping your child in or out, whichever you need at the moment! It’s 24″ tall, so you shouldn’t have any fence jumping…I hope!

safety 1st nature next bamboo safety-gateWe recently moved our 2 year old from the crib to a toddler bed, and we use this gate to keep him from getting up in the middle of the night and wandering around or falling down the stairs. I like using a safety gate much better than shutting the door because I can hear him better and feel more confident that he’s okay. Even for a taller-than-average 2 year old, this gate keeps him in his room where we want him. The pressure mounting is strong enough that he can’t knock it over and there’s no way he could jump over it.

I love the Safety 1st Nature Next collection because of the high quality, eco-friendly materials and great appearance! Thanks again, Safety 1st!

We just moved to NoVA where most of the homes have stairs. We’ve never lived in a home with stairs before, and it’ll be a challenge with our almost 2 year old. I expect to need some gates, so it’ll be great to win this attractive one.

I would love to have this on hand for when I’m watching my granddaughter!

6 Stacey Lokovic May 11, 2009 at 7:28 am

I really need that gate!! Since having our last baby, we moved into a new house with FOUR sets of stairs! Now we are expecting another baby and will need several gates to keep her safe once she arrives. This looks like a wonderful gate!

I need to win because I don’t have a gate and my son is everywhere. It makes me nervous how much he loves going up the stairs and he has no idea how to get back down. I have a serious fear that he will try and climb down and fall. I really need this gate!

Well . . . I don’t have any more small children but I do have a little dog that I am trying to keep away from the bedrooms upstairs. She has been with us for over two years and now, all of the sudden, she likes my son’s bedroom – to do things that she shouldn’t be doing inside and never had a problem with before. He moved out about 5 months ago and his room is to become my new scrapbooking room but I have to get this other problem undercontrol but still leave the door open.

54 robin May 11, 2009 at 10:49 pm

I would love this. We have weird stairs in our home and when our granddaughter comes to visit I have to put a chair and an end table up against them to at least slow her progress in getting to the stairs. She still tries to crawl under and squeeze through… so it’s a very imperfect system.
This gate looks like it would fit the bill and it looks great too!
Thanks for the giveaway!

I would really love to win this for my daughter. She has 5 children and my grandson just started walking and is now getting into everything so when she is going after him her 2 year old starts. I would love for her to have this for a way to keep some control to put this gate on her kitchen doorway. Thank you so much!

68 Donnetta May 12, 2009 at 8:56 am

I have two little ones on the move (1 and 3 year old). Knowing they cannot escape from the area would save my sanity. I don’t have enough gates for our 4 level split and constantly need to drag on up or down the stairs.

69 Jennifer S May 12, 2009 at 9:11 am

Our littlest is still just 3 months but she’ll be moving around before we know it and I don’t yet have a baby gate for her. This would be fabulous to protect her from areas where she could get hurt! Thanks!

This is a very attractive baby gate, I just love the look of bamboo. We could use this gate as I have a one year old that wants to play in the bathroom while my two year old is trying to potty…this gate looks like an attractive solution.

101 Talitha May 14, 2009 at 11:07 am

103 Nicole May 14, 2009 at 3:00 pm

I am in desperate need of a gate. my little guy just found the stairs. He has managed to climb a few but still unable to figure out how to come back down. I need to get a gate for the stairs asap!
