Day 218 - Pull Up

Today's first time parenting tip - Cover edges and corners with foam or some other child safe material

Once your baby starts pulling himself up on his crib, tables, furniture, etc., he'll also start to do something else. Fall. And you don't want him knocking his head on anything sharp or hard that'll cut him or damage his insides.

You can mitigate this by covering corners and edges with foam piping. It's pretty inexpensive and all you have to do is cut a slit down one side of it and it'll fit right over any edge. Grab some corner guards for square tables and furnitue and you should be good to go. You can put some double sided tape on the foam piping, otherwise you'll be constantly knocking it off or he'll pull it off.
