The Pikler Arch

At nine months Otto is pulling up on his Pikler Arch. He generally steps up to the first rail and at the moment I noticed he put one foot as much as the second rail. It takes time, he is experimenting, he's testing and difficult himself! The Pikler Arch provides a incredible opportunity to fulfill his developmental wants in a safe and supervised way.

How we use the arch:

Always supervise. I would not put this within the child's bedroom. We now have it in his movement/play area, subsequent to our residing area which is always supervised.
Have it on or close to a soft or padded surface. I would not put the arch directly on hard tiles. Ours is on a wool rug which works fine. I considered putting a lambswool or thin mattress close by but so far it's not needed.
Allow the child to explore it independently. They will use it when they are ready. There is no such thing as a have to incentivize or show them learn how to do it and I might never put a child on it. Just make it available!
Why we like the arch:

It is small. It's perfect for the child who's on the very beginning of their climbing, they'll use it to drag to standing and there is no risk of them getting stuck or climbing too high that they can not get down. The scale and the space between the rails has been designed for infants from crawling.
Unbelievable for their muscle development and coordination. Otto is a superb climber and he must climb. He climbs our stairs, couches, equipment on the playground and the arch is one other avenue for him to explore.
Assists the child to fulfill developmental needs. Climbing, exploring, testing limits and capabilities are real developmental needs. When the child's developmental needs are met they're usually more settled, calm and happy.
Help the child to develop spatial awareness.
Because of the design, it empowers babies. T,he steps are small, they will use the rails to pull up with their arms, it enables the infant and allows them to safely use their growing our bodies in new and exciting ways.
It brings joy. The Pikler Arch brings joy to the child once they realize what they are capable of once they fulfill their aim. I can see Otto beam with pride when he climbs up on it.
Assists children to develop to their full potential.
