Describe Yourself: Parent of Two or More Children

We have two of these gates. They are our SECOND FAVORITE Gate. They look WONDERFUL. It is sturdy and I have to admit that it rarely works itself loose. We go through this gate HUNDREDS of times a day. This is not a handsfree gate. it does not latch on it's own, although it will swig shut on it's own. Sometimes this can be very annoying. If you want a gate to swing shut and latch, that's great, but if it doesn't latch automatically, there is no benefit to having it swing shut. It's difficult to carry anything through this gate(laundry, baby, toys, etc) because it is always trying to swing shut. I have to maneuver and hold it open with one leg while going through. I have a 22 month old and a 3 month old, and this gate is NOT my favorite. I much prefer the step on gate that is sold from One Step Ahead. We had some initial issues with this gate not staying secure, but now it does. It only auto latched for the first few weeks and then that feature stopped working and you have to latch it yourself each time, which is incredibly frustrating for a gate that is supposed to auto latch.
