Oskar keeps pulling himself up on anything in his way and then he walks along that piece of furniture or whatever he's holding on to. I can never leave him for a second because sooner or later he will fall.. He knows how sit down but he slips once in a while and he also has his older brother that push him away from things . Upstairs I'm fine with wooden flooring but down here we have a tile floor. I'm so scared he will hit his head on this fllor. I don't know how to keep him from it though?

I have NO idea!! That's why I'm actually excited about getting Kai a helmet LOL! Then he can venture into our kitchen and dining area I haven't let him in there yet unless he's in his jumperoo.

Hmm....I have seen those large foam type ABC squares that hook together like a puzzle. Maybe something like that? The "One Step Ahead" website would probably have them.

Which is why I'm always hovering behind Calleigh. Even wooden floors make quite a "thunk" when a head hits it. How about putting down those foam tile mats. You know the ones for kids with different colours and they link together. I'm thinking of putting that all over the flat.

Thank you to .hoodihoo.this. for my beautiful siggie

I have the spongy ABC squares that puzzle lock together. I bought them on eBay for like $25 and I have them in an area on the hard wood floor in our living room. However, our kitchen is tile and I have nothing in there. She rarely is in there, but she isnt' crawling yet either. I figure she'll just be used to it?

I am going to get those puzzle mats too because even tho I have carpet, its uber thin and when she hits her head on the floor, the thud hurts me so I can't imagine how it feels to her!

Guess all I can suggest is the padded puzzle floor. Good luck in your decision.

thanks Springbokkie for my beautiful siggy

I've chosen to just pretty much hover over Ryland at all times. It's dangerous! He's crawling, he's pulling up onto everything. I just have to follow him around. The playpen is a lifesaver for me when I have to leave the room for a sec. Aren't older brothers so helpful?
