Q: I have twins who have just started crawling, and a quick babyproofing sweep has taken away the lamps from throughout our house. I love the soft lighting, but fear my babies will pull at the cords, knocking over a lamp and hurting themselves. So my question for other parents out there -- have you found a safe lighting solution? Are there cordless lamps out there?

Editor: I was a very minimal babyproofer so am not the best equipped to help with this question. Would it help to temporarily tape down cords that you are worried about? Readers, was this a concern for you and how did you solve it? Has anyone seen cordless lamps?
