Kitting out your home’s stairways with safety gates is one baby proofing measure you’ll need to take once your baby starts toddling – here’s a stair gate three-for-two deal we’ve spotted that could come in useful.
Even if you’ve only got one set of stairs at home, you may want to invest in more than one stair gate to place at the bottom and top of the stairs.
Stair gates can also be useful to stop inquisitive little ones entering areas of your home such as the kitchen.
That’s why the three-for-two offer on baby safety products currently running at Mothercare might come in useful.
Three-for-two on stair gates
We’ve safety and lab tested one of the gates included in the deal – the BabyDan Flexi Fit wood extending gate – and found it was easy to open and close with one hand. Once assembled it can move in either direction.
Each gate is priced at £34.99 at Mothercare, but you’ll get three for the price of two (the discount is applied when you get to the online checkout), plus free delivery when you spend over £50.
The three-for-two offer extends to selected baby monitors, sterilisers, playpens and more, so you can mix-and-match your choices.
If you’re only after one of these stair gates, however, give Mothercare a miss. Single BabyDan stair gates are cheaper at Amazon – £29.99 plus free ‘Super Saver’ delivery.
