10 month old climbing EVERYTHING! please help :(0 1 month ago by Hikaru Katsu
my son just wants to climb everything now and i've baby proofed as much as i could but there is still stuff he could climb and get hurt. he knows how to climb stairs by himself (when he does there is always someone behind him with their hands like an inch away from him). he knows how to move stuff in order to climb higher, and also knows how to pull the drawers out to stand up. i'd get the cabinet latches for the drawers but he'll keep getting his fingers caught. i know hes just a baby and that this is just one of the many stages he'll be going though, but its incredibly hard to get anything done when i have to watch him like a hawk. he has a play pen area that i lay blankets down but its still a hard surface if he falls. i'd let him cruise in his walker but he hates being in it. there doesn't seem to be too much i can do besides watch him like a hawk until hes really good at walking.
Make sure to secure dressers, entertainment centers etc to the wall. My brother almost got crushed as a kid from one almost toppling over on him when he attempted to climb it.
The only thing you can do is baby proof and watch them. Get all the things you need to get done while he's sleeping.
