Once your curious little baby starts crawling, he'll be trying to get into everything. You may now find that you can't put him down to play on the carpet and have him stay put anymore. This shouldn't have to be a problem, though, if you get the right equipment. Now is the time to invest in a baby corral (or baby play center), an enclosed play area that keeps the baby confined inside and away from dangerous and unsafe areas of your home.
There are many types of corrals, some are big with attached toys on the walls others are smaller, to be used inside the home and/or smaller apartments. You can choose from a simple style made up of separate plastic 'fence' style panels, thicker colorful plastic walls with matching floor mats or even wooden styles or clear plastic ones. Whichever one works best for you, it will be a great item to keep the baby busy as well as your sanity!
You can create a great play area by putting a bunch of toys inside the corral and let baby have some fun. Baby corrals are also indispensable when the baby starts walking. Most corrals can be used inside and outside so you can take them with you to the beach, park, friend's house, backyard or anywhere! So pick one that folds up easily so you can quickly pack it in the car and go!
