right so ive read so many things saying babies understand no etc and to a certain point i believe it because just saying no firmly to my 10month old daughter she screams and paddys, but it really doesnt seem like she learns lol coz 2seconds later shes back doing the same thing.
Shes climbing stairs, furniture, cupboards ovens you name it she will get on it lol.. i just cannot seem to stop her doing anything, atleast when kids are older you can say " they will learn when they hurt themselves" but a baby wont will they, anyone got any tips coz im pulling my hair out :( she is so fast, i dont even notice her half the time.

I think they do understand, just don't want to listen. Josh at that age keot putting things in his mouth, not small enough to choke but still, not food, and he used to start crying when told "no". In the end, I didn't put locks on the cupboards but things I didn't want him to get hold of (cups of hot tea/coffee) went up on tables before he started cruising/walking, then onto shelves and then, eventually, back in their normal places once he got bored of trying to get them down :lol:

I think they understand too, even from being a very young age! Lewis knew at that age if he was doing something he shouldn't because I used to move him from what he was doing say no no and within 2 minutes he would be back in the same place doing it again whilst looking at me waiting for my reaction. Little monster lol! In the end I learnt that the best thing to do was to get up, move him without saying a word and then get back to what I was doing. It took a long time of doing this, but he eventually realised that he wasn't getting any attention from me for being naughty.
When he was being good and playing with his toys I would make sure that he got plenty attention and he soon realised it was better to play with the toys rather than get into mischief. Even now he's 2 and quite independent, I can leave him and touch wood he doesn't get into mischief.

I say no to Jack if he tries to grab my mug or something while I'm trying to take a quick sip, just as a normal reaction as I don't want him to touch it as it's hot, but he obviously doesn't understand what I mean.. yet! He just smiles at me and obviously recognises that I'm saying it in a different tone to how I usually speak to him. But then he is only 5 months old so I wouldn't expect him to know exactly what No means.
