Fireplace Safety Gates. If you have a gas fireplace, however, you can place your gate much closer. Fireplace gates will also protect your little one from hot glass burns from gas fireplaces, which happen far too often (over 200 children get third degree burns from hot fireplace surfaces every year).
The downside of hearth pads is that they can easily be removed by most young children, definitely not what you want in a baby-proofing product. I was recently shown this amazing product by a neighbor that is simply wonderful for baby proofing your hearth.
