Toddler Top Tip: Free Door Guards

Parents of toddlers can spend a fair bit of money getting their house toddler-proof. It seems with each new milestone, there's new potential hazards around the home.

Our mobile daughter loves to play with doors between rooms - particularly slamming them. We worry she will jam her tiny fingers.

One option is to buy the C-shaped guards that can be attached to the door to prevent it closing.

Another option is to save yourself about $5 per door by experimenting with items you already have at home.

A rug, towel or cloth nappy over the top of the door may do the same job for free.

I am happy to spend money to keep my daughter safe, however I don't like wasting money on products designed to target tired, time-poor parents. Have you used items you already had to make your home safer for young children?
