Can you believe it? Your baby is walking around like she owns the place. She’s so confident about this new skill and developmental milestone that she already wants to take the stairs — two at a time!
If your baby is new to walking, though, she’s probably not ready for stairs yet. So put the brakes on and take a few precautions. Here’s what you need to know and do.
Before you know it, your baby will be skilled enough to walk up and down stairs without help. Just teach him to always hold onto the railing so he stays safe (and stay nearby to supervise). Next up? He’ll be running — cover your eyes!
