Hi guys, so Im a new mom of an amazing (at times) 8mth old boy and we are learning everyday. The one thing we are struggling with is figuring out how to stop him from hurting himself when he climbs. He tends to climb the coffee table, tv stand, and balcony door ledge. The problem is that he is not sturdy enough to stand without falling and seeing as he does this repeatedly even after he falls and hurts himself it is becoming difficult to control.

We don't know what to do as if we pull him away he goes right back, if we put pillows around him he falls forward and smashes his chin, if we stand there with him he screams because he wants to do it himself.

HELPPPP!!!!!!!

Have a designated play space that is baby proof where he can climb and play without hurting himself. This is what babies do! I had a playpen for my wild ones! Best of luck! Aleema
PS. Babies don't break, but they do get mad sometimes! We learn by our mistakes however painful it may be.
