Charlotte never climbed over hers but learnt to undo it - we had to go out and find one that even me and DF had difficulty opening to stop her from learning to open it - luckily now we have a flat she doesnt need one!

haven't used them with dd3 and 4, yes they've fallen down the stairs a couple of times each but on the whole they've learned pretty quickly how to get down safely (they're up like a rocket as soon as they can crawl, if not before, lol) I did spend a fair bit of time saying 'babies go backwards' and hanging around... mostly I would have used a stairgate to stop dd4 from going upstairs and trashing her big sisters' rooms, lol

we have 3 safety gates still in use one inbetween the room and kitchen ( doesnt get used much)
one at the bottom of the stairs ( dont get used much)
one top of stairs always closed on a night and when the babys loose upstairs.
when jade can walk and try climb stairs then the one down stairs will get closed .
had gates up since aimee was 5 month old
