my son is nearly eight months and it looks like he might start crawling really soon. I was thinking of getting him a play pen so I could confine his wandering a bit if I can't be right there with him. So I'm posting on this age group forum for mothers with bubs a bit older than mine to ask-- would you recommend getting a play pen or is it not really worth getting? Once he can start walking will he not want to be restricted to just the play pen? I'm just unsure how much use I would get out of it so would welcome your thoughts. Thanks in advance.
