    Default Baby proofing & coffee table/lounge suit

    I bought this stuff on eBay -

    It's not expensive and comes with adhesive tape.

    That's a piece cut for a bench corner.

    Eating it wouldn't be a good idea of course but if you can stop that it's really good stuff. If you're interested I'll find a link. Comes in different colours too.

    I didn't baby proof anything with either child.
    They are always going to hurt themselves on something. Babies soon figure out what is safe and what isn't.

    We rearranged our area to suit. He copped a few scrapes and bruises but he will get them anywhere. Pool noodles might work or put a throw rug over the wood edges of the lounge. Even check out self storage places you might be able to purchase so of the heavy duty blanketing to use

    He will likely get stuck under the coffee table or maybe bang his head from time to time.. It happens, kids are resilient and get over it quite quickly.

    It's impossible for everything to be 100% safe, Dd can be walking down the hallway and trip over her own feet, I can't really do anything about it Lol.
    Ha ha! Our boy does this all the time - trips over his own big toes. And I agree with what most are saying here. Babies will learn from their mishaps.

    Our boy caught his fingers in drawers/wardrobes a few times and soon learnt to close them carefully with a flat hand.

    He slipped up on a wet floor a few times and learnt to walk slowly on a wet floor.

    He banged his head when coming out from under the table a few times and learnt to stand up when he was well clear of the table.

    The only baby proofing I've done is to put something on one of the doors to stop it from slamming shut when the wind blows and to lock one of the kitchen cupboards.

    OP the pool noodle idea is a good one and would be cheap to implement if you really wanted to cover the edges of your coffee table.
