View Full Version : glider rocker -- how to keep baby from pinching fingers, etc

We have a glider w/ottoman in my son's room and he's just about to start crawling and he already rolls everywhere and gets into everything. Do you guys do anything w/the glider and/or ottoman to keep baby from knocking over or getting fingers pinched in all the moving parts?

We got the locking mechanism on the glider(Dutailer-sp?) so it can't move when I'm not in it and just got a small wooden footstool instead of ottoman. Maybe your glider manufacturer can send you a retrofit locking kit?? Honestly, my son is 17 months old now and has never pinched fingers in glider when I've forgotten to lock it and he loves to climb up in it to "read" books! I can see how a baby might pinch fingers on the glider mechanism though.
