mamas of very mobile 8-9 month olds

My 8 month old ds is very mobile. He is crawling everywhere and pulling himself up on everything. It is hard for me to keep him in one spot and he is anti play pen. I have been looking at play yards but they are so expensive. So I am wondering what other mamas who have very mobile 8 month olds are doing. I have two other boys so I letting him crawl all around and me following him isn't always an option. The high chair is only ok for a short period of time as is the johnny jump up. Any suggestions?

I just baby proofed EVERYTHING to the extreme.

Re: mamas of very mobile 8-9 month olds

DD was walking at 8-9 months old... She was our first, so I didn't do anything but follow her around or sit and play with her. My only suggestion would be to make sure everything is baby proof. Put up some gates so that he is confined to a safe area if you can't get to him right away.

My second was walking at this age also. Seems to be a little easier then the crawling and pulling up stage. I would prefer that!

Ben was walking at nine months. He is our only child right now so it makes it a little easier for me. But when we're just hanging out we kind of corral him in the living room. We have pocket doors that lead to the dining room so we close them and move the PNP between the two couches. If we didn't have such a small living room I would have to baby proof more. Don't get me wrong, everything is pretty safe, but we don't let him have the run of the place just yet.

Finn is also far too mobile, lol, at 7 months he is cruising the furniture, crawling around, and harassing the cats. I'm just trying to baby proof the ever living snot out of everything. He has about a 10 minute limit in the exersaucer, so I just let him wander the family room.
