If your baby has just learned to walk, he / she probably is not ready for stairs yet. Please take some precautionary measures at this stage.
- Set children windows. Even if your baby is getting really good at walking, he / she is still not ready to get on a stairway. Your baby will want to show his independence and it is important that you make him / her understand that it is important to hold someone in the stairs.
- Slide first, go late. It is harder to get down a staircase than uphill. Teach your baby to get down the stairs with your stomach down and your feet first. This is definitely the safest way, and you can make it a game.
- With a steady grip. When your baby is big enough to get up and down the stairs yourself. Teach him / her to hold the side rack.
At this age, be sure to be close to your baby as he / she learns the art of walking in a staircase.
