Baby Safe Cupboard Ideas

I'm interested in suggestions for securing a lazy susan type cupboard. Our toddler is starting to show an interest in opening the cupboards and drawers in the kitchen and we are concerned about him pinching his fingers in the lazy susan. Has anyone found a resolution to this issue? Thank you!

use the same type of rotating bar that is used on the back of picture frames. Put one on each side the door can't go past them unless you swing them sideways

We didn't childproof the home...we homeproofed the child. We have a lazy susan too and our son (who will be two in August) has also shown an interest in playing with it over the months. Yes he did pinch his fingers, but we taught him that it was a "NO". Children can learn what they can touch and what they can not.

Put a babysafe latch on the door of the cupboard.

I found that a large rubber band on the door knob and the one next to it works wonders for my inquisitive 1 yr old. Other than that, baby cupboard latches can be purchased at the dollar store. Good luck!

While teaching the child that the cupboard is a "no", you can tape a piece of an old terry towel to the side of the cupboard making it impossible for the turnstyle door to close. Yes, after a while the tape might need to be changed, or "Jr" might figure out how to remove it, but that's why "Jr's" learning that this place is a "NO". Better than pinched fingers.
