Depends on your home

We purchased a baby play area but never close it off. We use it to block off the TV and computer and one of the exits. The other exit we close the door. The room is well baby proofed and my son can safely play in the whole living room. I would say it depends on your set up and what is safest for your child.

I had my first child in April 2013, just before our one year anniversary. Riley has been an absolute joy and I love every minute of being mom. But I am the first among my friends to have a child, so there isn't always an easy place to go for advice.
