Are they a good idea or not? Josh has just started rolling a lot and I turn my back and he's on the other side of his big play rug. We've been away for a couple of weeks in a small place so I've pretty much been in the room with him when he's playing. But, now we're home and I want to be able to leave the room when he's playing so I can put the washing on, etc, etc. I would always be within earshot and only out of the room for a few minutes at a time, but that suddenly seems like a long time.
Are playpens useful? Do they just end up rolling to the edge and getting upset cause they can't roll any further?:
Do you use a playpen with or without a gate?
Any thoughts welcome
