Hm, I'm still saying no non-stop at my DS.... Goes through phases.. Right now he is
constantly climbing all over his little sister...
Quite normal to say no alot, but I try and do it in different ways - e.g. distract him before he does the thing he mustn't, tell him its not a toy, its not safe etc.. rather than just NO.
Not sure where exactly your sofa is in relation to the table and how easy it is for your LO to get to, but maybe stop putting hot drinks there for now.
We reasonably child proofed our house for DS, he was never into things he shouldn't be. But our DD....... she is constantly looking for trouble and getting into things she shouldn't so we are going to have to be alot more vigiliant for the childproofing with her...
