Help Me Pick A Baby Gate!

There is no stopping him these days!

We are in full baby-proof mode over here.  After Cullen gave me a huge scare with the staircase, I immediately sat down and opened up my Amazon window.  We need baby gates much sooner than later!

A quick browe through Amazon left me sort of blurry, and Consumer Reports made me even more aware of all the many different options available.  How do I choose something that seems sort of important?

Pressure mounted, hardware mounted, top-of-stairs compatible, auto-close, auto-open, type of latch, and more.  It seems like there are a lot of different models and options, and I’m wondering where to go from here and how to choose!

We really just need something sturdy for the top of a staircase, so my preference is hardware-mounted – to ensure that there is no waythe gate can go down the steps.  After reading through many many Amazon reviews, I thought I’d turn my question to you awesome, experienced moms.  Can anyone recommend a gate they love?  Or warn against a gate they wouldn’t buy again?
