I think for my first child, I would have thought this just a paranoid bit of baby paraphernalia, but now with my second, I find my oldest is old enough to open gates and doors on her own, and the baby often toddles off after her. I can definitely see the use of a gate like this, both for reminding her that her sister is too small to know what’s dangerous and she needs to remember to close the gate, and to let me know when she’s simply forgotten!
