The near-universal response to that statement has been "You can hire someone to do that?" Yes, you can. Given a large enough metro, you will find a competent professional ready to let you outsource anything. I actually picked from a list of local baby proofing services that had been recommended.
They took me through the house while I took notes about what should be moved and what should be subtly changed (activate the lock on the rocking chair and so forth) and they took notes about what should be covered in soft padding, fastened to the wall, or secured with a latch, and where to hang the gates.
They were impressed that our televisions were already strapped down. "The cat walks along the tops of them."
And that so much of our furniture actually just doesn't contain sharp, pointy corners. "I walk into things. I saw that round coffee table and I was like I NEED THIS! MY SHINS!"
And that the silverware tray was already moved to the back of dishwasher "The beagle."
The cleaning supplies were already in a cabinet above the fridge and most of the outlets are covered, because I'm not completely useless at basic health and safety tasks.
I can't think of any proto-baby proofing done to keep my husband from injuring himself, now that I'm listing things.
Installation is in two weeks or so. The whole thing was pretty reasonably priced since we have to buy all this stuff anyway and now I don't have to shop for products. Plus it's extremely unlikely that anyone is going to have an argument while installing them. So far, this seems like a big win.
