I have 9 month old DD in a her bedroom on a floor bed, and I love it! The problem is, although her room is mostly childproofed, we have a panel heater in it that needs to be plugged into the wall in her room ( I am living in New Zealand and it is turning to winter here). All of the other electrical outlets are blocked, but this is the only place we can plug in the heater to keep her room warm. I need to find a way to block off her access to the electrical cord and the electrical outlet now that she is crawling and is more mobile. We have a fire guard around the panel heater, but it doesn't extend to the electrical outlet. Any ideas? TIA

this a quite old thread. did you get this resolved, if not i have some ideas.  if you did get it handled, would you like to share how so that the next gal can learn from you?
