Baby proofing is likely not the first thing on your mind as soon as your baby is born. After all, they will not be mobile for quite some time. However, the time will pass before you know it, and you will begin to see potential danger around every corner.
As a parent, this is one of the biggest and most important tasks you will undertake. You will need to take care and pay special attention to a few specific things when baby proofing your home.
It is important to teach our children independence while helping them progress when they reach developmental milestones.
When your little one is building her strength, beginning to stand on her own and getting ready for those first steps, you can help her feel confident and practice taking those steps on her own with the help of a baby walker.
There are TWO BASIC TYPES of baby walkers: push walkers and classic walkers.
As parents, we have a love-hate relationship with baby walkers. On one hand, they are big and bulky, hard to store, and can run over toes.
On the other, they provide a safe place for baby to play and practice walking while giving parents a much-needed, well-deserved break.
Do you use your walker as a portable high chair or mobile snack station?
Have you noticed dirt and hair buildup on the framing or around the wheels?
With constant use, baby walkers can get very messy, and need to be cleaned to prevent bacteria growth and keep your baby healthy.
