It looks like Brady is going to be crawling pretty soon now. So, DH and I have started trying to think about what we actually need to babyproof in our house. We don't really feel like we should move all the furniture and make our home into a padded room to protect him (LOL), but there are a few things that are probably necessary. I thought I'd take a poll to see what things you ladies have found to be the most useful and where you got them.
Coffee table - I'm probably going to get the corner and edge cushions since we have a wooden table with corners. One Step Ahead has some that look good. Any others?
Fireplace - We have a gas fireplace that does not have doors on it. Since we won't be using the fireplace any time soon the only real danger I can see is that there are these little pebbles in there that he could pick up and eat. So, what have you done for fireplaces? Should we consider getting doors? What about the screens that cover them? Any suggestions?
Play yard - We probably need one of the play yards so that we can put him somewhere confined while we take the dogs outside, etc. Which ones do you recommend? One step ahead has a few options. Anywhere else?
Kitchen cabinets - DH already bought something for the cabinet. I think they are the magnetic kind that you have to have the little key to open. Not sure because we haven't installed them yet. What did you use?
Furniture/TV - We're going to get some straps to tie down the TV. I'm not sure what other furniture we have that needs to be tied down. If you bought straps or anything like that let me know.
Other than that, I guess we'll get some outlet covers but everything else will probably stay as-is. We'll obviously just have to make sure he is in sight and do our best to prevent him from doing anything potentially dangerous.
