How do I stop my toddler climbing over the safety gate? First things first. As soon as you bring the baby gate home and install it you will have to teach your child politely on his/her level that the gate is not meant to be climbed and he needs to be away from it at all times. Be very clear and humble so that your child listens to you carefully and understands you.
Are pressure-mounted baby gates safe for top of stairs? Pressure-mounted gates are not secure enough to use at the top of stairs, so never use them that way, no matter how much you want to avoid drilling holes into your walls.
What age do you stop using a stair gate? Falls in toddlers
Carry on using safety gates at the top and bottom of stairs until your infant is at least 2 years old. Start to teach your child how to climb stairs, but never let them go up and down on their own (even 4 year olds may need some help).
