27 Baby-Proofing Items Every House Needs ASAP
If your home has a fireplace, you need to make sure your child is protected from the flames, as well as any stray leaping embers. The easiest way to do this is with a sturdy fireplace screen, ideally one that is attached to the fireplace in some way so that small hands can’t knock it over or pull it away. Fireplace screens can be very plain and serviceable, or they can be fancy and elegant, or anywhere in between. Just make sure that the one you choose has a fine enough mesh behind the metalwork to prevent embers from reaching the carpet, where curious toes might trod upon them.
