Cliff Diving

Baby has no fear of heights.  None.  We can hold her up high and she giggles hysterically.  Then we swoop her down and around the room while she squeals.  It's a blast! 

So what's the problem? 

Well, Baby has so much trust in Husband and myself that she knows we will always be there to catch her.  She plunges herself head first off of the couch or bed, and Husband and I are right there gently lowering her down.  It's like she is diving off a cliff,  if you compare her size to the height of the furniture. 

How in the world do I teach her not to throw herself off of things if she has not fear?  I don't want her to have to find out the hard way, but what are the alternatives?
