That gorgeous square coffee table you took months tracking down takes on a whole new meaning after you have a baby. What was once the pride of your living room is now a danger to your new pride and joy. You don’t realize how many sharp corners are in your home until a delicate baby comes into the world. There are quick fixes to patch up those corners to ensure your little one doesn’t get hurt when they’re crawling, learning how to walk or running around. The best babyproof corner protectors are soft and blend in with your furniture that you so painstakingly picked out.
There are generally two different types of corner protectors: A camouflaging foam one and a transparent PVC one. We found two of the former and one of the latter. The high-density foam corner protectors we picked out come in white, brown and black, so you can match them to your dressers, chairs, stairs and more. The foam has 3M adhesive on the other side. The kits also come with some bonus edging, which you can customize to other sharp edges in your home. The transparent protectors have adhesive on all of the corner sides and are difficult for your child to pull off.

1. Bebe Earth – Baby Proofing Edge and Corner Guard
This set from Bebe Earth comes with eight corner covers and an additional six meters of edge guard. The guards are made out of high-density foam and will help keep your child safe. The corners are already pre-taped, so you just need to remove the backing and stick it against the corners of your furniture. The wrapped edges will need to be cut to the sizes you need, but it has 3M white tape along the back. It comes in onyx black, coffee brown and oyster white.
2. CalMyotis Corner Protector
If you want a more aesthetically appealing corner protector, check out this option. This transparent protector is made out of BPA- and phthalates-free PVC. Each inside edge of the corner protector is coated with adhesive, so it’ll stay put on the corners. Your child won’t be able to tear them off. When you take off the corner protector, you won’t be left with a sticky residue from the acrylic glue, either. These corner protectors come in 12-, 18- and 24 packs.
3. Roving Cove Baby Proofing Corner Protector
Made out of BPA-free high-density foam, these cushioned corner and edge guards will help absorb the impact of your little one running into furniture. The rubber foam is .4-inches thick, so there’s a decent amount of space between your kid and the coffee table, for example. This pack includes eight pre-taped corner guards and 18 feet of cuttable edge guards. All of the tape is 3M’s, a company that is known for making reliable adhesive products. It comes in three colors.
