How To Babyproof Dresser Drawers

Good Questions

Q: I have a Hemnes dresser from IKEA and while it is attached to the wall, my son loves to open and close the drawers as often and quickly as possible and I'm worried that he will hurt his fingers. What's the best way to baby-proof IKEA dresser drawers without permanently damaging them?
