A baby walker is a device that helps babies learn to walk. It is a frame with wheels that an infant can push around, and it has a seat for the baby to sit in. Baby walkers are also known as infant walkers.
Most baby walkers are meant for babies who are at least 4 to 6 months old and can sit up independently. Some walkers have a weight limit, so be sure to check the manufacturer’s specifications.
A baby walker helps an infant practice standing up and taking steps. The walker gives the baby support and stability, and it also helps the baby develop muscle strength and coordination.
Most babies will outgrow their walkers by the time they are 8 to 10 months old. Some babies may use them for a longer period of time, while others may only use them for a few weeks.
When used as directed, baby walkers are generally safe. However, there are some safety concerns to be aware of. Baby walkers can tip over if the baby leans too far to one side or tries to climb out of the seat. They can also roll downstairs. Baby walkers can also be dangerous if the baby is left unattended in them.
To help prevent accidents, always use the walker on a level surface and never leave your baby unattended in the walker. Be sure to keep an eye on your baby at all times while he or she is using the walker.
If you have any concerns about the safety of baby walkers, talk to your child’s pediatrician.
