DS figured out in the past week how to sit up entirely by himself, crawl, and pull up on things. He's already almost standing up! Yay for him except he is EVERYWHERE! I babyproof but he still manages to find something to get into. I don't want to pen him in, but I'm thinking I might have to. I'm also glad he's gotten more independent and wants to play, but it's exhausting chasing him all over our tiny apartment and sometimes I have to cook dinner, etc.
Note: He doesn't really like his exersaucer or his jumpy gym thing because they constrict his movement.
Is it mean to pen him in? If not, do you have any play-pen recommendations?
