Day 172 - Climb Around

Today's First Time Parenting Tip - Give your baby some pillows and blankets to climb around on

By now your baby is probably using his hands as much as his feet to try and motor himself around the house. Problem is, carpet and hardwood floors aren't really good to grab onto.

In addition to giving him some floor time to teach him to crawl, put him among some pillows and blankets on the floor, preferrably, on your bed. (That way if he rolls off he's got a soft surface to land on.) Stay close and encourage him to roll over, pull himself up and push with his feet to conquer the mini-Everest. This isn't really something you want him to do on his own, he could get tangled in the blankets or caught on a pillow.
