Corner Safety

  • When you are buying new furniture and have a baby or toddler, be aware of the magnetic quality corners have for small heads. There can be just one sharpish corner on one piece of furniture in the whole house, and your toddler will find a way to hit it with their forehead, most likely right before a family photo session.
  • You can avoid this somewhat (but never totally, since children always seem to bash their heads) by purchasing tables with rounded corners.
  • If you have a fireplace hearth with bricks or stones jutting out, find a good thick blanket, such as a Pendleton blanket and fold it lengthwise. Place the folded blanket over the hearth to cover the sharp edges. This will create a cozy sitting spot for you and your child as well.
