Worried about safety with your Pikler triangle? Here are some ideas of what to put under a pikler triangle to keep your kids safe!
Getting a pikler triangle is exciting! Your kids are probably really excited climbing all over it and exploring all that it can do.
But, as a parent you might be worried about safety and what to do if they fall!
You should always supervise kids while using a Pikler triangle, but you definitely want to let them climb independently. Getting brave is half the point of using a climbing triangle!
But, kids are going to fall. That’s what they are learning – how to climb and how to fall – safely.
But, having something soft under your Pikler triangle can help to give you peace of mind.
What should you put under a pikler triangle?
My top choice for under a pikler triangle is carpet or a rug. This will allow it to be stable but still slightly cushioned.
If you have hardwood, laminate, or concrete floors, you might want to consider a mat.
I do NOT suggest a Nugget or a crash pad. They are too thick and spongy and don’t give the triangle a solid foundation. Using them can actually lead to more accidents!
