    After reading the thread on BnB about the dangers of baby walkers, its got me thinking twice about buying one. Thought I'd put the question out there whether you will/did buy a baby walker and why/why not?

    We got one for River and will use one for this baby (obviously depending on whether she likes it).

    River walked at 9 months so it didnt impede that and has no problems walking properly now. I know there are risks associated with them but with the correct responsibly use then i see no problem.

    River was in it for maximum of 10-15 minutes at a time and probably only 30 minutes a day and we never used it near stairs (i know that seems obvious but it seems people have done this which is why its banned in canada!)

    She was a little nutter in it, would come running at you screaming :D

    No. Didn't really see the need and thought she'd just crash into things. I'm not a fan of large toys around the house anyway, and don't buy plastic ones, so it wasn't for us. I'm sure if you supervise them they'd be fine though.

    Also we never used it with the intension of getting her to walk it was just nice for her to be at a different level and have the possible of moving a bit

    No we have never had baby walkers, but not because of the safety aspect. I just don't like things which restrict baby's ability to experience the world and limit opportunities for exploration and movement.

    Yes, because i will watch him and make sure he is safe! The only reason they aren't safe is because people stupidly leave their LO unattended when in them!! :dohh:

    What type of walker are youtalking about? The one they sit in or the one they stand and push? We have one of the sit in kind but haven't got much use out of it, she more interested in crawling around. We do plan to get one of the stand and push ones though as she's standing and pushing at other things that aren't meant for it! :haha:
    I never knew there was anything wrong with either of them though.

    I got one with Liv. She never really charged round in it. She just used to push herself backwards on it, lol.

    Harrison has one too, he is still too small for it. He sits in it thou, something different for him to play in. Although at the moment he is not too fond of it, lol.

    No, but it's not an option here as they are illegal in Canada.
