Re: Frustrated 9 month old - Advise Please

Very normal - it's a developmental issue - he needs to be allowed to crawl and pull up on things.

I would gate off the stairs and big brother's room and I'd tell him not to climb the entertainment center until he understood. It will be a lot of work for a day or so, but once he understands, then things should be fine.

My child did not agree to being confined and it's normal because at 9months, most babies are working on gross motor development and need the time and space to practice. Just think that really, you will have to teach him not to climb that now anyways, even if you could find a way to confine him for another month or so, it won't be long before it'd be impossible again.
