Boots Door Stopper
Advantages: Good quality and thick foam
Disadvantages: On the expensive side
As soon as our twins started to crawl at around 10 months one their favourite games was to get behind our living room door and push it shut. As the door sits on carpet it doesn't swing freely so I usually had time to rescue them but I started worrying about their little fingers, not just that they would trap their own but that they would trap each others. I remembered my sister having some foam door stoppers when her children were little and so had a look the next time I was in Boots and found this door stopper.
This door stopper comes in very simple cardboard backed plastic packaging which you tear apart to get into it. I'm not keen on this type of packaging usually but this one wasn't too bad to get into.
The door stopper
It's made of a strong foam which is flexible enough to fit around your door but strong enough to stop the door from shutting. It is a decent depth and distance from the door to ensure that little fingers can't get caught in the door.
To use it you just push it over the door when it is open, it fits snuggly on our doors which are quite wide and I put it high up so it isn't in the way and my little people can't reach it to remove it. It works really well and although we don't have many baby safety products I wouldn't be without this one.
Price and Availability
As it's a Boots own product it is available from their stores and from www.Boots.com. It's priced at £4.09 which I feel is expensive for a piece of shaped foam but it does the job well which is the main thing. Boots often have baby events where you can buy 3 for 2 on a range of baby products which would bring the cost of this down.
Would I recommend?
Yes, I think these door stoppers are a great baby safety product and I will be looking to buy more for other doors in the house now that our little ones are moving round the house more.
Summary: Great baby safety product
