The Pikler Arch

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

How we use the arch:

Always supervise. I would not put this in the child's bedroom. We have now it in his movement/play area, next to our living space which is always supervised.
Have it on or near 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 nearby however up to now it's not needed.
Allow the child to explore it independently. They will use it when they're ready. There isn't any must incentivize or show them the best way to do it and I would by no means 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 will use it to drag to standing and there's no risk of them getting stuck or climbing too high that they cannot get down. The dimensions and the gap between the rails has been designed for infants from crawling.
Incredible for their muscle development and coordination. Otto is a good climber and he needs to 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 wants are met they're typically 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'll use the rails to tug up with their arms, it enables the infant and permits them to safely use their rising bodies in new and exciting ways.
It brings joy. The Pikler Arch brings joy to the child once they realize what they're 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.
