  • my 9 month old will play on the floor all day if i let her. she loves roaming around and getting into trouble =) i'd imagine she'd only start to get fussy either if she pooped or was hungry.

  • If her big brother is not around she will play for a long time (sometimes over an hour). But since the brother is usually right there its only about 10-15 minutes.

  • I guess about 15 min. It depends is he's hungry or sleepy. I usually give him something to eat like a snack while he plays, that keeps him happy longer.

  • depends on how her mood is, i'd say by herself i can get maybe 30 minutes of something done

  • My one year old usually has her brothers to follow around and play with (they are 3 and 4). She is content to be with them all day. If they happen to not be home for some reason she will still play by herself for most of the time as long as she knows right where I am. If I change rooms she gets upset. I have an in-home daycare so all our rooms are child proofed and have toys so she just wanders happily wherever she pleases.
