Tobi has been amazing with stairs since about 18 months.
Now I leave him at the top and let him make his own way down... It's the only thing he has a degree of respect for as something which could hurt!
We don't have stair gates up anymore either as he learnt to open them!
I suddenly realised one day I could hear him upstairs!!
I still don't let her go up or down without us as our stairs curve round and there is nothing for her to hold onto to steady herself. Plus she had a nasty fall which scared me half to death and made me more nervous!
