My son is almost 11 months old and lovvvveeess climbing up the stairs. Does it like 10 times a day. We’ve tried a few practice turns going backwards down the stairs but it’s mostly just me doing it for him. Any tips/ tricks on how to teach him to go down? Thanks!
Hey @Eraftis1 this is for sure the age when babies find the stairs and it’s like a theme park for them! And because your baby is starting to navigate stairs early on, it can take a bit of time for him to actually learn the danger and how to motor plan going down.
The best thing you can do is continuous practice of turning around at the top of the stairs and guiding baby down-help him by guiding his legs first to feel the step below and then the hands.
