We look forward to when our baby takes the first steps. But when this moment comes, many moms make mistakes that not only do not help the child, but also delay these long-awaited minutes. I worked on the bugs, and I want to share with you what is worth doing and what not worth, so that your child would quickly and correctly go.
I put my daughter in a walker for 8 months. I think this is the most common mistake moms. We want the children to start walking faster, but in fact the child is relaxing, lazy and just riding in these walkers. We rolled them up to a year, and did not even want to crawl. Then I threw them away and let my daughter down to the floor.
Then the mother-in-law came, and put a diaper under the daughter’s arms. The daughter hung on him and rode perfectly on the new rocker. This is the next error.
Now the shoes. When the child is just beginning to take the first steps, it is better that he was barefoot or in socks. Then the weight of the child is distributed correctly, which helps to prevent children’s flat feet and violation of posture. And I wore sneakers, sandals, and kept thinking, why my daughter was constantly falling.
Well, and probably the most important mistake of mine was that I did not give the child independence. She was afraid of letting her go on her own, did not allow her to take a step on her own. The fear that she will fall, to strike overpowered common sense.
Everything I described in my mistakes prevented my daughter from quickly and efficiently learning how to walk. Therefore, we went to 1.3. It’s too late for a girl. May my failures be for you, Mom, a good example of how not to act.
Work on the bugs.
But I did the right thing. Such a successful experience was the purchase of the reins for children. This is a very convenient and useful thing. Attached to the armpits, on the tummy. On the sides of the rubber, do not crush, do not injure the child. The body weight of the daughter was distributed evenly, I was constantly there and did not worry about the safety of my child. The reins were very well supported by the baby, and she really liked. Although no aesthetics. At first, the sight of a child on a leash made me laugh, but the practicality of this device won me over.
Then I began to take off my shoes. Now I can’t get her to wear sandals. All summer barefoot running. Massage is good.
Summarizing the above, I will say that it is difficult for both the mother and the child to take the first steps. The main thing is patience, care and, finally, you let go of your child, let him fill some cones. It is so useful to him.
And how did your baby go?
