Questions about a fireplace hearth padding kit...
Well, my 10-month-old tots have been able to stand a while now and Nate just got a leg up on the fireplace hearth yesterday. I'm kind of freaked about him slipping and and banging his head on the hearth.
I've done some online research looking for padding kits to be placed on the hearth and have found a few. The one I really like is sold by a mom-and-pop organization and it actually adheres to the entire hearth, covering the landing part of the hearth as well as the corners and edges. Problem is, it's $70 and I wish I could find something cheaper.
Doing some more research led me to a few places that sell the kits that are a little cheaper and cover the corners and edges only but that still leaves the top part of the hearth without a cushion in case the kids slip and hit their heads.
Do any of you use these padding kits on your fireplace, know someone who does and would recommend what they have or at least know of any place that I could contact online or wherever that would be a little cheaper than $70? Any help is greatly appreciated!
