My youngest daughter, that will be 3 next month, won't stay out of the refrigerator. I don't know how to stop her without putting a lock on it, but don't really want to do that. She gets into it mainly at night after everyone has gone to bed. She will wake up, go into the kitchen and get out whatever she wants, and unless for some reason one of us wakes up, we don't know about it until the next morning. After she gets out the food she then stashes it. I've found food under her bed and inside of toys before, most times days later..She also gets into the silverwre drawer and gets out butter knives and then the butter out of the refrigerator. Have had to put a padlock on the pantry so that she stays out of it, along with moving all the food out of the cabinets in the kitchen and locking it in the pantry since she will push a chair up next to the counter and climb up to get into the cabinets that way...I am going out of my mind trying to figure out ways to keep her out of things...ANY suggestions would be appriciated!
