The Pikler Arch

At nine months Otto is pulling up on his Pikler Arch. He typically steps as much as the first rail and at this time I noticed he put one foot up to the second rail. It takes time, he is experimenting, he's testing and challenging himself! The Pikler Arch provides a unbelievable opportunity to fulfill 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. We've got it in his movement/play space, next 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 however to this point it's not needed.
Permit the child to discover it independently. They will use it when they are ready. There is no have to incentivize or show them find out how to do it and I'd never put a child on it. Just make it available!
Why we like the arch:

It's small. It's good for the child who is on the very beginning of their climbing, they will use it to tug to standing and there's no risk of them getting stuck or climbing too high that they cannot get down. The dimensions and the distance between the rails has been designed for infants from crawling.
Improbable for his or her muscle development and coordination. Otto is a superb 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 are 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 can use the rails to pull up with their fingers, 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 joy to the child once they realize what they are capable of after 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.
