So want Toby to walk!! by louisehampton

Toby is now over two stone in weight and so carrying him everywhere is becoming harder and harder. I used to throw the hammer and do weight training so luckily I am pretty strong but carrying a wriggly toddler around constantly certainly takes its toll!

Toby is an excellent crawler and this is half the problem as he is so much faster at crawling than trying to walk. From his point of view its important that he doesn’t walk until his muscles are strong enough but I’m just impatient!

The walker he has certainly helps and he is very confident on that now and at cruising the furniture. Coffee cups etc have now had to be moved to a new level and nothing can be left on the coffee table!

Who needs weight training! Just wait until he starts walking properly – it’s amazing how fast they can move!

I’d be interested in your input in the debate about evidence based care on my blog.

Very true!! In one way I can’t wait for him to walk but not looking forward to trying to catch him!
