Great Bumpers, Plenty of Cushion - Get These Before It's Too Late!!
on September 8, 2015
My daughter (14 months old at the time) was walking pretty good, but not expertly. She was able to take off running but she would always end up falling/tripping after 10+ steps. So as most parents do, they secure things around the house so that their baby won't fall into things. Tables, chairs, furniture, cabinets, etc. We thought we did a pretty good job in securing our house so that no accidents would happen. Unfortunately, the unexpected did in a way we didn't think of.
As I was playing with her (she likes being chased), my daughter was running from me but ended up tripping. I was too far enough to try & grab her and she tripped at the corner of a hallway where the edge of two walls made a L shape. She fell face first into that corner and ended up gashing her forehead. I felt so bad and terrible, like a failure as a parent. It took almost an hour to get her to stop crying. Luckily she didn't need stitches, but she does have a scar to constantly remind me.
Who anticipated that the first harmful fall would come from a corner of a wall and not a coffee table?? Shortly after, I ended up buying these table edge guards and putting them on all corners of the house where the walls make an L shape corner. Never again will my daughter end up gashing her head again.
They install quite easily and the amount of foam in these (especially on the corners) are sufficient. I tested them by punching the corner of the walls where these were installed. I couldn't feel very much pain, so I'm assuming it's plenty enough cushion for a toddler.
