Ok guys, I just have to share this amazing hack my sister came up with to protect her newborn baby girl from her toddler brother when she’s hanging out in her Pack ‘N Play.
Toddler brother (Jack, 18 months) keeps dropping toys on the baby’s head.
This is not ideal! Clearly.
Jack is a lovely child, but also – toddlers aren’t known for “soft hands” and “using discretion”. They are known for what we like to call “aggressive love” and “overzealous sharing,” which make a protective barrier for the baby a real asset.
Anyway, my sister Catherine needed something in a pinch, and she found her toddler’s soccer nets. Genius! She attached the goalposts of the soccer nets together using zip ties over the top of the Pack ‘N Play. Voila!
A cage for her baby. Just kidding. Not a cage. But a great way to stop her toddler from dropping hard toys on the baby’s head, which is frowned upon on account of the fact that baby’s heads are still soft and also because they are heads, and heads are important for people.
My sister ordered an actual safety net for the Pack N Play too, so this is just an interim solution. Still, genius.
