When baby-proofing an electrical receptacle (aka, "outlet"), is it necessary to use covers:
When the electrical receptacle is "tamper resistant"?
One of the scariest moments we've had with our daughter came from the use of outlet covers. Our daughter managed to pry one of the covers off and proceeded to put them in her mouth. I caught her just as she was trying to jam the saliva coated outlet cover back into the socket. If you ever go the outlet cover route, make sure they are nearly people-proof instead of just baby-proof!
