Most newer apartments/homes have an open floorplan and ours is no different. The bar doesn't align flush to the wall so there isn't a way (at least that I can imagine) for us to set up a traditional baby gate. For now we use the pack-n-play and sometimes in conjunction with the drying rack to set up a blockade to keep Nia from getting into the kitchen.

I don't know what it is about the salt shaker but she is absolutely obsessed with it! She sucked on the top of it so hard that her spit crept down in it solidifying the salt so unfortunately, I had to throw the whole thing away. Now she goes for the oregano instead!
So readers: do you have a suggestion for how to better blockade this awkward space to keep Nia out of the kitchen? I spend so much time there as we eat home cooked meals about 95% of the time and while I don't want to hamper what might be her interest in food/cooking I obviously want to keep her safe.
Let me know what you think!
