Description:
In countries where baby walkers are used there has long been controversy about their risks and benefits. Baby walkers are a non-essential nursery product made of a seat surrounded by a rigid frame which is set on wheels. Most walkers also have a tray with toys or rattles attached, and many can be compacted for portability. Parents give various reasons for using walkers â to keep the infant quiet and happy, to encourage mobility and provide exercise, and to hold the infant during feeding. In the United Kingdom, baby walkers are used by over 50% of infants.
