Since we are thinking all things 'baby' around our house these days, I thought I'd share one of my tried and true childproofing techniques that won't break the bank! When our children were babies (and we'll do this again with a new baby on the way!) we protected them from sharp corners on tables and especially our brick fireplace hearth by putting foam 'bumpers' around these hazardous corners. You can buy 'baby bumpers' from you local baby store or online for $28.95 (plus shipping) for 24 inches
Or you can do what we like to do... go to any home improvement store - Lowe's, Home Depot, etc. - and purchase foam pipe insulation for around a dollar a length. The lengths come in several yard increments. Since the insulation is made to fit around various size pipes, we find the 1/2" to 1" pipe size works best. That seems to fit perfectly. Also, the insulation has an adhesive strip on the top and the bottom which will hold it securely on the top and bottom of your table. If you cut a 'V' notch out as the insulation goes around corners, it will fit very securely! I cut about a 1/4 of the tubing away when fitting it around the fireplace and that makes a nice secure fit there.
