On average, babies start at eight months old crawl. This means that many children start moving much earlier. As soon as a baby crawls, it will not be long before it can pull itself up on things - chairs, tables and other surfaces are no longer out of reach. This checklist will help you to be prepared for your child's ability to move from A to B in an instant. Because in the time you make yourself just a cup of coffee, your crawling baby 400 m can cover. The following checklist will help you to identify dangers. It is very helpful, however, if you yourself go to all fours and crawl your apartment from this perspective. Maybe you'll notice a thing or two then.
