Baby walkers

baby; walkers; ;

A baby walker consists of a rigid frame on wheels with a sling seat. Babies can sit in the seat and move around before they are able to sit alone or crawl.

Baby walkers are not safe for babies and it is strongly advised that you do not use baby walkers.

Child safety experts recommend a stationary play centre as a safer option.

Have a look at this information about baby walkers from Product Safety Australia. It provides information about safety and the mandatory standard for baby walkers.
