I have a good friend who swears by "baby jail" esp when she needed to pay close attention to her older boy. Basically she bought a couple of those multi panel baby play yard things and connected then to make a play area about two feet smaller than her living room. This prevented access to the tv stand, fireplace, whatever but gave the kid enough room that they could pull up on furniture etc and not feel too confined.
so I can
and DD can
