Q: My 19-month-old recently jumped out of her crib so we've been rushing to get the room completely child proof before we move her to a toddler bed and give her complete freedom to walk around while we may be sleeping. The thing we are stuck on is window guards. We live in South Florida and these are basically unheard of here. We used to live in New York and remember that it was the law there that anyone who lived above the 2nd floor and had children needed to have them. So, my question is: what are our options? What is an effective, budget-friendly, stylish way to prevent our little one from jumping/failling out of our low windows?
