Hi mamams,<br>
I so thought DD's room was totally baby proofed until she sat down kinda hard and hit her head on the door hinge. Yes there was just a little bit of blood from the cut! :-( I didn't realize the door hinge was even there before this incident, but yes all our doors indeed have hinges... They are small metal cylinder so the top edge is kinda sharp/hard. Is there anything I can put on it? My first instinct was to put a small ball of playdough on it, but then again, DD will just pluck it and eat it.

I agree. But if you're desperate <a href="http://www.onestepahead.com/catalog/product.jsp?productId=535793" target="_blank">these</a> exist and would likely work.

The door would also work with a strip of padded fabric running from the top of the lintel to the floor loosely over the hinges. Lots of cute choices available at the fabric store <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

we can't really baby proof door hinges but I agree you can use door hinge pinch guards

Yeah, I guess you're right! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">
