Q:

can i use baby walkers as some doctors do not recommend them..



Sheeba Vijesh

walkers are not recommended for a reason... it interferes with baby's natural instinct to get up and walk. it can also cause accidents....

Sweta Nagubandi

Not recommended. pls let the baby walk on their own.

Sheeba Rizvi

Hi Sindhu it's risky baby can get hurt that's why doctor doesn't recommend it but honestly speaking I used it for my both babies n nothing wrong happend with them they used b excited n loved the ride. You need to be very very careful n alert when using walker. Posture of the baby should be comfortable n straight n don't keep him in walker for long hours..Sheeba Vijesh Dhara Popat what do you think?

Harneet (clanpedia)

no. its a risk and causes delay in milestones. leave the child on floor and let him explore and he will walk, when he is ready.

Harneet (clanpedia)

do not force ever a child to walk, dont hold fingers...

Nisha Dayal

No don't use them. My neighbour used it for their daughter and the little girl's legs have bended. I didn't use it.

Sheeba Rizvi

Yes agree with Nisha Dayal n Harneet Khurana risk is really high it's better to avoid coz I too heard many accidents. I was the lucky one that nothing was happend with my babies or may be I used to be very alert.
