Win a Safetots Stair Gate – Giveaway

Toddler safety was an important issue for us when my two where younger.  With a long flight of stairs and one of my children’s bedroom door being right at the top of the staircase, stair gates were an essential for us.  Both at the top and the bottom we found them invaluable and it really helps when you can find a good one that’s simple to use.

Safetots are one the largest retailers offering a wide range of baby equipment, in particular child safety products.  With everything from stairgates, highchairs, changing bags and travel essentials there is a huge choice available.  In fact just checking out the range of stairgates is vast, with something to suit everyone.  I just wish I’d known about this site a few years ago when I was looking for one for my extra wide staircase!

stairgateWith brands available such as BabyDan, Dreambaby, Safetots, Bindaboo, Lindam to name just a few, I’d definitely suggest checking out  their stairgate range if you have a baby who’s getting ready to take those first few steps, before you know it they are off toddling on their own!

Safetots have kindly offered one of my readers the chance to win one of their Safetots Self Closing Gate worth £24.99.  It’s pressure fitted and fits openings between 75-82cm.
