    Don't worry about it. I have a lot of wooden floors- just keep them mega-clean and let LO go. Wooden floors are actually much more hygienic and are great fun to slide on in your socks :winkwink: Keep him/her in trousers or tights if you like, but I don't think even that is really necessary. Just make sure there are no nails or things sticking out of course!

    I stuck a duvet down, for two reasons she slid everywhere at first and because laminate flooring in my house in winter is freezing, so its stops her getting cold, i did the same with my lil boy aswell x

    Ooo i never thought of this, My baby isnt here yet but i have wooden floors all over.
    Hopefully i will be moved out of this place before baby is able to crawl but if not i might have to buy a big rug! The wooden floor does get quite cold!

    And if you can't afford a big rug (because i know they are bloody expensive) what about an off cut of carpet, you can get them pretty cheap x

    no it should be fine and even if it does they probably won't even notice, if you worried put trousers on, or if he's struggling at first (because they can struggle with trouser on) just stick a pair of tights on him!! Its not like anyone is going to see him!! lol x

    we are in the same problem. there isn't carpet anywhere in the house!! :hissy:
    I normally dont let Colton even on the floor. This is OH's mothers house, and she NEVER EVER EVER cleans the floor. (I refuse to clean her house because she doesn't respect her house enough to clean up after herself, I'm not doing it). I dont even walk around without socks on.
    Colton's seven months, and he does get belly time in his crib alot and I have alot of toys in there. He scoots himself around really good and is trying to get on his hands and knees.
    We are hoping to get our place finished in the next two months, and I'm hoping he will learn before then. But if he doesn't then I know it wont take him 1-2 weeks and he will be all over that place!

    Well we have wooden flooring everywere, except Kyles bedroom. But he loves the flooring. He uses his hand and pulls himself along it so fast! Hes still not realised he can move beter on his hands and knees, I think this dragging method works for him :lol: I recentley bought some Knee protectors I got it from www.thebabycatalogue.com
