My almost 14mo dd is a climber. I'm not sure what to do (if anything) and I'm after suggestions from other parents of climbers.
She takes particular delight in climbing onto one of the two recliners in the lounge room. She can get up in under 5 seconds so I literally turn around and she's up grinning at me. I tried taking her off & putting her on her couch every time she did it today, but it hasn't worked so far and I'm wondering if that gives her attention which could make it worse.
The only thing that seems to work is for me to sit on the recliner myself and then she'll happily go & play with her other toys (or climb on my lap which I don't mind). BUT, that doesn't allow me time to eat, drink, let alone do anything else!
Our carpet is old & pretty threadbare and she likes to stand up on the recliner, not just sit, which is why I'm worried about her falling.
Thanks for your advice.
