I have been using a baby walker but maintenance some rules. I will just suggest you when baby use a walker for short periods of time, say, half an hour, then let him/her take a break. So I think, using a walker is okay.

I have always heard true walkers are dangerous, that you should use stationary ones instead.

I never felt the need to have a walker, I mean they walk soon enough anyway. I think the problem is with more and more people having hard floor covering instead of carpet, the walkers are extra slidey.

What we did have for my daughter was the first steps baby walker, it was a gift and she used that to walk which I think is a lot better than the seated walkers. She also had a dolls pram which doubled as a wee walker.

No we didn't use a walker. I didn't like what I had read about them.

Both my boys used it for short periods of time and had no problems with walking whatsoever. They both weren't fans of walkers at all!

Just noticed how old this thread is! Was only 17 and no kids back then

Actual baby walkers are illegal in Canada. You can only buy the push along type ones. Which those I did use with my son, but he was already taking steps and just uses it to go further distances.
