Pulling Up

Pulling Up

Location: indoor or outdoor

Materials: large, stable furniture

As your infants get more mobile, they will naturally start pulling themselves up on furniture. This is a natural progression in figuring out how to walk. Make sure your babies have a safe and steady space to do this, whether it is a chair, shelf, or coffee table. It's important to ensure the corners are not sharp, and that the item will not tip over if a baby is using it to pull up.
