Boots Door Stopper
Advantages: Does what it should, available in most Boots stores, decent price if on offer
When my daughter got to the crawling around stage, we know it was time to start baby proofing the house. While I didn't go mad, one thing that I did buy and would recommend was a door stopper. Lauren started crawling during the summer months and that particular year, it was quite warm which meant we had the patio doors open quite a lot. Unfortunately, in our house if you have these open along with any windows, the slightest bit of wind causes the internal doors to slam shut.
The door stoppers retail for around £4 for one, I purchased mine as part of one of Boots Mother & baby Events and they were on 3 for 2 (if you are signed up to Boots Parenting Club, you also 10 Advantage points per £1 spent too). The products its Boots own brand so not available elsewhere but you can buy online and instore.
The door stopper is white in colour and made from quite hard foam. To use, remove all packaging and slide onto the door. This needs to be placed quite high up to stop your little ones from playing with or removing. The door stoppers are easily removed should you wish to shut the door (we have a cat and when we go out, there are certain internal doors which I have to shut to ensure the cat doesn't enter rooms and set the house alarm off). Because the stopped are made from foam, they don't mark the doors or scratch any of the gloss off which is a bonus. Although the door stopper is not the most attractive one for sale, I find that because it is white it doesn't stand out too much against my white internal doors.
Overall, I would recommend these door stoppers, although Lauren is nearly 5, I still keep these on during the summer months and I hate to hear the doors slamming, and I am still worries she could have her little fingers somewhere she shouldn't if a door was to slam, so they have proved a good investment.
Thanks for reading.
