My wife and I are frazzled with a little boy who has not only mastered the walk and the run, he has now started into climbing every available vertical surface.
We thought we had the house baby-proof, at least the living room. Other than standing over him every moment, we're wondering if anybody has any ideas for dealing with this.
For example, he's a perfectly healthy boy with a perfectly healthy skull. Better to let him fall a bit and learn or what? We have a bicycle helmet. I half jokingly suggested to my wife that we put a helmet on him and strap some pillows on him.
We know he needs to explore and learn, and we have surfaces like book-shelves, coffee tables, and furniture, that he seems to know how to get up and into, but not down from. I guess we've just got to hover for the next while.
Any tips at all, including ways to reduce the chance of your baby climbing up and falling on his head and breaking his neck, appreciated.
