Q: I want to get a platform bed, any kind that is not too expensive. Ikea Malm seems good for the price. I would like to know how to babyproof a platform bed that has sharp edges. I am in love with platform beds but I have a son who is going to turn 8 months soon. He is already so active I am afraid he'll hurt himself with the edges of a platform bed. I can't afford an upholstered bed because of the price. Please help!
