4 of 12
Pad your fireplace hearth to protect your child from any falls. Make sure your fireplace screen is secure and can't be pulled over or knocked down. Install a heat resistant guard or glass door that will prevent your child from burning himself if he gets too close. Surrounding the fireplace with a gate is another way to keep your baby away from the hearth and fire.
Remember to also remove any tools that may have pointy or sharp edges, and keep all matches and flammable materials out of reach.
