For now E is still in her crib, but I think once the day time potty training is solid, we'll start night training this summer and I'd like her to be in a big girl bed by then so she can get up and potty herself (or at least I hope she will).
But the idea of her having free reign in her room, unattended scares me. Of course we'll anchor her furniture to the wall, put baby locks on her drawers (she'd pull everything out of the drawer otherwise), etc. But what about cords? Between her monitor, nightlight, sound/light machine, and lamp there is a lot plugged in.
How do I keep her out of her closet? She has two bi-fold doors that I modified to open like french doors.

We moved in Jan and still haven't set up DDs room. So it just has her bed, area rug, sound machine, and potty. Her clothes are in her closest on a open shelf. So I'm not the norm but I LOVE not having to worry about her getting into things/hurt. She is very busy and gets into everything. She does Play with her clothes and changes her outfit and folding laundry is pointless but I know she's safe in her room.
As for cords, I arranged J's room so that most of the outlets are behind pieces of heavy furniture. He has not shown much interest in them though.
We did this to.
The only other baby proofing I did in his room was to block the closet doors. He's not a climber and when he wakes up at night he comes straight to our room. Something tells me that when we get to this point with 2.0 we won't be nearly as lucky.

Ok so for the cords I got one of those outlet things where you plug everything in and then rotate it so furniture can sit up flush against it, so I'll just cover the cords with her nightstand. So that problem is solved. Now I just have to find a way to keep the closet doors closed.
Tonight I saw that she can fully hook her leg over the crib bars. That's as far as she's gotten, but a few months ago she couldn't do that. So we may be transitioning sooner than planned if she starts trying to climb out.
You may put a eye bolt and hook high on the door. We live on a very busy road (people drive like a bat out of hell) and DD can easily open the screen door so I put the eye bolt and hook up high so she cant reach it to open it and is it strong enough to keep her from opening the door. I also use the outlet plugs. DD loves to put things in places and I really worry about her sticking something into an outlet. Anchoring the furniture is next on the list. I leave her floor potty in her room at night and put a baby gate outside her bedroom door. She doesn't get up at night but if she does she is confined to her room only and not the entire house.
