Q: I have a question for your experienced moms out there. I am due in May (first baby) and we are currently shopping for and preparing the nursery. My question is regarding curtains. I really want full-length curtains in the baby's bedroom (for multiple practical reasons - not just the way they look), but someone told me this is a bad idea - not so much immediately, but once the child is 2-3 years old. "Your kid will swing from curtains" was the gist of their comment. (continue reading Leah's question below the jump.)

However, I have full length curtains in my living room and have no intentions of removing those (unless they become an obvious hazard). So "what's the difference" is sort of what I am asking myself. What do your readers think? It is totally insane to have full-length curtains in a child's room? Thank you very much for any advice!

p.s. We try to be very budget conscious, so there is no way I would put them up now only to take them down once the baby is older ... I would rather spend once on the windows and be done with it! Thanks again!

Editor: What do you say - are your toddlers swinging from the curtains? Let Leah know below if you have full-length curtains in your kids' rooms and if they're working out.
