New research from nationwide children's hospital finds nearly two-thousand kids are treated each year after falling through or climbing on gates.
More than 60 percent of the children hurt were under 2. Injuries included cuts, sprains, strains and traumatic brain injuries.
When using a gate at the top of stairs, researchers recommend ones that are screwed in , not pressure-mounted.
Jessica says as a first time parent she had no idea there were different types of gates.
She confesses, "I had a downstairs gate at the top of my stairs and that is why she fell."
Jessica is grateful her daughter was not seriously hurt and only had to spend a few hours in the emergency room. .
