is there such a thing as a stove lock?<br><br>
ds is 9mo and walking all over the place now. last night he was pulling up onto the cupboards and things in the kitchen and grabbed the stove handle and opened the stove! he fell right to the floor holding onto the handle,kind of sliding under the door <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> the stove was not on thankfully and he is ok but it scared all of us. DH & I were both right there, less than a foot away but it happened so fast! we feel so bad <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/mecry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="crying">

My Ds LOVES the oven so the first thing that we did as far as babyproofing was get a lock for the oven.<br><br><a href="http://www.safeandsecurebaby.com/xcart/home.php?cat=20" target="_blank">http://www.safeandsecurebaby.com/xcart/home.php?cat=20</a><br><br>
I got mine at Toysrus.<br><br>

Not only should you have a latch on the oven door, you should anchor the whole range to the wall so if he ever does catch the door open, he won't pull it over on himself trying to climb up. With gas ranges, it's a code requirement.

I got our stove lock from Home Depot. It's the one that keeps the oven door closed.<br><br>
Surprisingly, I couldn't find it at BRU, TRU, Target or even Walmart. I was just about ready to order it online when I found it at HD. Now if I can just find something to keep DS from moving the kitchen table chairs all over the house...
