Toddler Safety

Hello!

I wasn't sure where to put this so...I will introduce myself and ask my question here! We have owned our airstream coming up 3 yrs now, it is us parents, one kid one dog in a 34' ltd. We love birdwatching, hiking and canoeing. Last year with the baby we had a great time. Now this season the kid will be almost 2, and he is taller and stronger and (it seems) more mischievious (sp?) than average!

My question is: is there some kind of cover you can put on the gas stove knobs? The kidlet loves to turn knobs and I am worried I will look away for a split second and not notice the gas on. (We did have a new LP detector installed.)

I have found an over door lock that seems to work at home so I'll install one of those on the door, but for now the knobs are my primary concern.

What else can a 2 yrd old get into? Besides the toilet haha.

Thanks for any recommendations!!

We're way beyond toddlers here......but.

The knobs pull off easily.

It's tough being a toddler. For the foreseeable future, it will be a regime of removable knobs, door locks and drawer locks and hyper vigilant parenting. So long to sleep and peace of mind. But then again, they're overrated...

Remove the knobs ... brilliant!! THanks! Me, I am not that smart but at least I am well-mannered.

My kid is 1.5 yrs old and I am thinking soon, (oh god please) soon I will get a good night's sleep. I guess I should just forget about that!! One good thing about camping is that the fresh air tires him out.

We have been through it (camping) for 3 years now. One boy 6 and the other 2, have both kept us busy with the knobs, radio buttons, tv's, etc. One good thing about the camper is at least it is smaller to make it easier to keep up with two. Some one please let me know when sleep gets back to normal.........ours our now old enough to work out a schedule to keep us up on a regular basis. Good luck with your toddler and enjoy it while it lasts.

Take all the necessary precautions you can to protect the little ones. Those tricycle motors will get into everything. Enjoy while you can, these memories will last a lifetime.

Damn! Hadn't thought of that! I am sure my little monkey will do the same.
