Nothing’s written in stone, but we’ve made a compromise decision regarding how much of the living room to give Red access to. We bought a 12′ x 8′ area rug, rearranged the living room furniture to maximize open space, and bought the North States Superyard XT play yard (plus a two-panel extension). The play yard won’t take the place of baby-proofing, but it’ll give us some time to get it done and still let Red roam around a bit. In the meantime, he’ll have about ~35 square feet of crawling space.

Red is nearing full mobility. Crawling is a skill he will soon fully possess and master. His days of contentment in his playpen are numbered. He’ll soon want to explore more freely.
That’s a problem. Our rented house has no carpeting, and the living room has old, bumpy, sorta splintery, poorly maintained hardwood flooring. DW and I are planning to rectify this by purchasing a large area rug or carpet fragment. My question to you, kind readers (both of you), is this: Should we use modular gates to pen Red into a limited region, probably half of the living room, or completely baby-proof the living room and give him full reign of it?
