Our solution to childproof the tree was to buy an
inflatable one! Yes - from Gowings in Sydney 2
years ago. It has inflatable balls and stars that clip

Shea doesn't have teeth yet so can't make a hole
even if he does chew on it. I may have to move the
christmas crackers covered in glitter that are
currently under it though - as he has found them
twice in 24 hours!

We have either put our tree in a wooden playpen when they have been crawlers and when they are able to  walk/climb we put the tree on a table, so its off the floor, away from harms way.

Hi, I've got to say that I have been totally amazed at Luka's reaction to the Christmas tree.  He is nearly 1 and is crawling, but he really isn't interested.  We have the lights on and pressies underneath.  He went near it a couple of times and we just said uh uh, which is no, and he shook his head and off he went.  We did include him when we put it up, he put a couple of decorations on it.  Maybe that helped.

Hope you little one is just as good.

Mum to Katy, Tessa, Tadhg, Luka and 3 angels.
