My son has been the most cautious, and yet somehow clumsy, child imaginable.
I’ve been actively looking at ways to make our home safer for him, especially since he’s started walking and opening doors. One area of particular difficulty to make safe is a rock wall leading out to our garage. You have to walk through this area to get outside and to our cars, but it incredibly dangerous if he were to slip. I’m positive the edge would slice him up. As a stressed parent, this is not ideal, so I was ecstatic when I was picked to try Baby Proofing U Shape Edge Guards. It’s a perfect solution to a rock-hard problem! Pun intended!
Elf Star’s foam goes on easily with double-sided tape. It comes in multiple colors for different decor, which I liked. We chose a brown that blends in with or compliments our surrounding colors. They also have brighter tones and a range of shades if you wanted to make
edges safe in your child’s room, but were looking for an option that is more fun. Another great feature is that the foam is easily removed, so you don’t have to worry about it damaging your furniture. This ingenious product can also be cut to the desired size to fit your needs.
In addition to covering edges, you can also help protect little fingers by putting the foam on a door frame/jam to prevent unintended closings. If your kids are like our son who loves to SLAM doors, this can alleviate a big concern. Bonus, if they can’t shut the door all the way, they will have difficulty locking themselves in anywhere, either. Yes, this absolutely happened to me last week and I thought I was going to have a heart attack. Thank goodness Logan thought it was just a game.
