It is funny how when you first have your baby and during those first few months you think you are very busy. Well, you should think about when your little one starts crawling, cruising, climbing on things and eventually walking.  You will THEN be even busier.

Our little one is a very busy monkey, he crawls all over the place and spends most of his time during the day cruising, walking around the house and climbing all over the furniture. Most of MY time is spent running after him ensuring he doesn’t get hurt and he is safe.

It is fascinating seeing all of the changes my son goes through and all the new milestones but it is also very demanding as I have to be extremely vigilant when he is playing around. I remember the times when I left my baby on the floor playing on his gym while I cooked lunch.  Those are LONG gone. I can’t take my eyes off him for a second because he is fast. Somehow it seems like all babies are attracted to the most dangerous situations.

Because I can’t spend my entire day on the floor WITH him and for those times when I need to do laundry, cook lunch/dinner or clean the house I am now using the Secure Surround Play Safe- Play Yard by Summer Infant.

The Secure Surround Play Safe – Play Yard is a 6 panel gate that helps me create a safe area for my little one to play in.  It is super lightweight and portable and it allows me to quickly set it up when needed and store it when not in use.  It has been wonderful for the backyard as well as I can let him play on the ground (while I watch of course) without having to worry about him crawling or walking to danger.


I find that the size of the gate is just perfect to give my son some space for walking and play but keeping him safe at the same time. He doesn’t like being in the playpen anymore because he can’t crawl when he is in it so this has been excellent for us.

The gate has a door panel that is perfect for easy entry and a handle that you can easily lift up and down to secure.


I love how easy it is to use and that there is no assembly required. You just have to remove it from the box and it is ready to be unfolded and positioned.

Thanks to the Secure Surround Play Safe-Play Yard I can now do what I need to do around the house and know that I don’t have to worry about my little one going somewhere dangerous.  I recommend this gate to any parents looking for a way to set up a safe area for their little ones to play in.
