Hi - hope this is the right spot to put this question - my son is nearly 9 months old and will not sit still when I'm trying to read to him. He loves books, loves to flick the pages, loves to chew on them but he will not sit or lie still.
I have tried lying on the floor next to him and holding the book above us, I have had him sitting on my lap, standing at my feet, sitting next to him and holding the book out in front - NOTHING will stop him from constantly being on the go.
I've just got the point where I read the story out loud to him and HOPE that he's listening to me while he goes on his mission around the room. I know he's exploring but even when it's getting to chill out time (just before a nap) - he still won't be still.
