The Pikler Arch

At nine months Otto is pulling up on his Pikler Arch. He sometimes steps as much as the first rail and today I seen he put one foot up to the second rail. It takes time, he is experimenting, he is testing and challenging himself! The Pikler Arch provides a incredible opportunity to satisfy his developmental needs in a safe and supervised way.

How we use the arch:

Always supervise. I wouldn't put this within the child's bedroom. Now we have it in his movement/play space, next to our dwelling 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 placing a lambswool or thin mattress close by but thus far it's not needed.
Enable the child to explore it independently. They will use it when they're ready. There is no have to incentivize or show them methods to do it and I might by no means put a child on it. Just make it available!
Why we like the arch:

It's small. It is good for the child who's at the very starting 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 dimensions and the distance between the rails has been designed for infants from crawling.
Fantastic for his or her 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 satisfy developmental needs. Climbing, exploring, testing limits and capabilities are real developmental needs. When the child's developmental wants are met they're generally 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 palms, it enables the toddler and permits them to safely use their rising our bodies in new and exciting ways.
It brings joy. The Pikler Arch brings pleasure to the child when they realize what they're capable of when 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.
