My boy is 7 and 1/2 and he really wants to pull up but what or where do i put him so he can practice his moves? Some times he pulls up on me, but he never does it in his crib. Help!

He'll figure it out on his own.. you don't have to do anything. Just make sure his play area is safe.

Don't worry, it will come! The crib is a great place to learn tho. You could try putting him in there and hanging out with him while he tries... clap, make faces, help him figure it out. Also, my daughter would brace her hands on a step or her toy box and push her butt up in the air. This seemed to strengthen her arms and legs so she could pull up on the furniture. Soon he'll be doing it everywhere and you'll be trying to get him to stop! lol!

We have a large rectangle storage ottoman and we place his toys in the middle, my son sees them and pulls himself up to get to it. Your son will get the hang of it, encourage him to do it on the couch, that way it's a soft landing, my son probably bumps around 5 times a day! But once he got the hang of it he tries to stand on everything

I'll sit my son on the floor in front of me on the floor - facing me while I sit on the couch - I'll hold his hands and he will pull on my hands and I help him up then
