Hi ,sorry to hear you've had such a difficult time of the last few months, hope things are on the up for you now. Rachel was about Lily's age when she .started pulling up. we use to put fav. toys etc at back of armchair/sofa to se if this would encourage her to pulll up . i thnik she id it when she was ready . Pyhsio had done a lot of work with us on standing at low tables etc so she was pretty sturdy on her feet. Once she was up it wasn't long 'til she started cruising the furniture , she took her first steps Dec last so just before hse turned 2. But people often say on here they all do it in their own time. I am very nervous about sending Rachel to nursery, i really have to do something about looking at them as she will be 3 next Jan. at the mo she hates me leaving her any where theonly people she doesn't scream at are her dad & her big sister. How is Lily at being left ?
Hi Chantelle - Daniel was about 18 months old when he could pull himself up and probably about 2 when he started cruising confidently. He walked properly at about 2 1/2 years. All the kiddies are SO different! We did lots of bribes - toys, food, just out of reach. To start with Daniel would stand up, then crawl round the table to get the toy and stand up again - cheater! Also lots of low chairs and sitting on our knees and encouraging to pull to stand. Big yoga balls are fun for rolling and standing with too!! And nursery... is the best thing ever for Daniel - I was SO nervous, but he loves it so much and has made heaps of progress. He's off to preschool in a week and I'm not too worried because he's been to nursey first. He's made loads of friends and does much more interesting things than he would at home with boring mummy! Sorry to hear the last few months havent been so good - lots of exciting new opportunities on their way I'm sure!
