restricted with baby gates and really baby proofed the living room.
Ollie was an early roller at 12 weeks and crawling 5 mths so we've baby proofed as we went depending on what we can move and what he can reach - you start having to say "no" sooner lol.
He was cruising early and took 1st steps at 9 mths - I spent a lot of time hovering and lots of cups of tea went cold haha (thank goodness for the microwave!).
His cute thing at the mo is to get your hand and lead you to whatever he wants you to do - open the baby gate or lift him up somewhere and we spend a lot of time going up and down stairs - generally he likes to potter and explore but is too tiny to let him go without me so I just bumble around with him and get something done in that room if he is happy playing- if I need to I close him in the living room but can see him as it is open plan to the kitchen so this is great when I need to do laundry, clean the kitchen, make meals, clean the living room- sometimes he is clingy and I have to get stuff done quickly. We go out a lot and given the chance he likes to roam everywhere - I feel like his shadow sometimes as he does just go off in his little world sometimes!
Congrats!!! I know your boy was not the easiest.. getting to this stage will make life easier. Baby proof like it was a prison, nothing available that could possibly be dangerous LOL. remember when it's new, they are obsessed. It will dissipate with time.
It's great hearing from you! Hope you'r doing well
Thanks. I found out he has CMPI! It was not Reflux, but I think we found out too late he suffered too much!
Thanks! Would you believe this kid just turned off the TV and walked to his bedroom on his own because he was tired??? Your boy will be the same soon
I put her in a playpen upside down when I leave the room. I don't want her crawling out.
My house is well baby/toddler proofed. When she was under 9 months I could put her in the jumperoo (oh so briefly, not a real fan) when I needed to do something. Once she walked at 9.5 months, I upped the babyproofing as much as possible and let her explore.
We had am early mover.. He started pulling himself alonng at four months was a pro at 5 months started crawling at 6 months and the.nxt week started walking along furniture so we dnt know n e diff! We put a staorgate up between kitchen and living rm n lo has full roaming of the living room. House is bay proofed altho he pulled off all the corner protectors so they dnt stick. I w
also make sure all his tpys have easy access so he can get them whenever.
I try as much as I can to let her get on with it,my mum freaks out when she's pulling herself up on the tv stand but I keep telling her that she's fine and if she takes a bump then we will cuddle or deal with it appropriately.dh at first was telling her "don't go there" and pulling her away from basically everything so I said that she's got to explore.
When I'm washing up or something I've found that she loves having her ball pool in the hallway and just kicks all the balls out for about half hour so I know what she's up to xx
