My son is 6 months old and started creeping around the house. He’ll lay on his stomach and push himself backwards and around in circles. And he’s fast! I put him on his back on his play gym while I was getting dressed, and in the minute or two it took me to fully clothe, he was on his stomach five feet away from the play gym. With that speed, it’s time to baby proof.
I could go on to write my own list here, but BabyCenter.com has an amazing, detailed checklist that covers just about every area in your home: Childproofing Checklist: Before Your Baby Crawls. As I begin baby proofing my house, I’ll share with you what I did.
