Activity ideas for your baby aged between 12 and 24 months

From 18 months: tackling the staircase

If you have a staircase in your home, you've probably secured it with barriers to prevent your baby from falling. But remember to provide your child with opportunities to practise going up and down the steps: it's a very useful exercise for their mobility. Going upstairs on all fours does not require that much training. But going down is much harder: show them that they can climb down on their bottoms, sitting on each step, one after another, or by turning to face the stairs and slowly climbing down, using the upper steps for support. They'll be very proud of themselves once they succeed!
