    Alex is 8 month old tomorrow :happydance:

    and is starting to show signs of wanting to crawl but we have laminate flooring.

    we have a rug in the middle of the room but when he was learning to sit he would topple over and find the only bit of floor i didnt manage to put pillows around:dohh: and hit his head

    he has a sit me up cosy which he tries to climb out of


    when hes on our bed in the morning he gets in the position to crawl, will stay there for a while then topples over

    so my question is , is there anyway i can i encourage him to crawl while minimising him bashing his head off the floor??


    we are getting carpet in the new year hopefully !

    :hug:

    just leave his bottom half naked, so he can grip the floor if that's what you mean?

    or banging head on floor uhm, don't suppose there is a great deal you can do...maybe an old duvet on the floor downstairs?

    Joseph crawled for the first time on Saturday and their hasn't been much head bumping.

    He's eight and a half months old now and he's been showing signs of wanting to crawl for a few weeks.

    The first crawl was just a little shuffle, he hardly moved but it was a crawl and he was shaky. Then by the next day he was really getting about and now there's no stopping him.

    He is a lot better with his legs bare but I do leave his socks on to keep his feet warm.

    I think the idea of the old duvet is a good one. Failing that you could always try to tape bubble wrap to the laminate until the new carpet arrives :winkwink:
