As your baby grows with increased mobility, you may have to introduce new safety measures.
At this stage, your baby may start to explore by crawling and pulling on anything to stand upright. His newfound mobility brings a different set of safety concerns. While his tiny hands can reach for possible dangers, his wobbly legs can give way and result in potential head and body injuries. Between 9-12 months, your baby may start to walk, climb and pick up food and small objects with his fingers.
Since your baby is likely to be active, you may need to make changes to your house to make it safe for him to explore.
Here is a look at some safety pointers.
