One of the things I would never really let my other kids do when they were tiny was go into the ball pits at soft play. This was the result of a nasty sick bug that we acquired the first time we ever took boy. However, as time has gone on the children have grown to love soft play and as ever, you are a little bit more lax with your third baby. So at 11 months old, little Ned is a soft play ball pit veteran and he really, really does love it. It’s tricky wrangling him to go home but delightful to see. And, in case you were wondering, he has the constitution of an ox and hardly ever seems to catch anything!
