baby and woodstove
we are new family with 5 month old baby and moving into our yurt in a couple months. im wondering what folks have done as far as the woodstove with curious littles. is a gate absolutely necessary or do people know other methods to keep them from being burned/injured?

My last child understood pretty quick not to touch it or play near it. "The burned hand teaches best" I guess. I do wish there was another way.

Yup. As a child I learned in a fraction of a second that poking a paper clip into a wall socket was a bad idea. Now the 'new code' receptacles suck because of litigation.

I'm told that as a baby my first word was "hot" because I burned myself on the wood stove. I've never done it since and I'm OK.

Re: baby and woodstove
We had a gate that attached to the snow legs on either side of the stove. When we took our yurt down, moved it and put it back up last year, we didnít re-install the gate. Our kids are old enough now to know. But at the beginning it makes sense.
