At nine months Otto is pulling up on his Pikler Arch. He typically steps up to the primary rail and at this time I noticed he put one foot as much as the second rail. It takes time, he is experimenting, he's testing and difficult himself! The Pikler Arch provides a unbelievable opportunity to meet 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 have now it in his movement/play area, subsequent 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 but to this point it's not needed.
Permit the child to discover it independently. They will use it when they are ready. There isn't a must incentivize or show them learn how to do it and I would by no means put a child on it. Just make it available!
Why we like the arch:

It's small. It is excellent for the child who is at the very starting of their climbing, they can use it to drag to standing and there is 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.
Fantastic for his or her muscle development and coordination. Otto is a superb climber and he must climb. He climbs our stairs, couches, equipment at 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 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'll use the rails to tug up with their hands, it enables the infant and allows 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.
