    generally with a walker the base is wider than the top so it may bump the skirting but not the walls.
    see?

    That play thing looks nice, but it's a lot of money for something you won't actually use for that long.

    If you think you'll get the use out of it hun, then go for it. It looks nice.....personally I don't see why a 3 year old would want to push it around... but maybe they would I don't know!

    Hiya Sarah I was warned against using a walker by a health professional as they are not supposed to be very good for the child's leg development (or something like that!) I must admit when I was being told I was thinking that my friend's little girl was fine with one, but it has made me consider not getting one with mine!!

    I got Phoebe the Hop N Pop. They're in Argos for 44.99 at the moment. She is still too young for it really but she likes it. My 2yr old cousin came round last week and he liked it too :lol:
    I'm not planning on getting Phoebe a walker because our house is pretty small and we have deep pile carpet so she probably wouldn't get very far or maybe get stuck in the carpet and tip up :shock:

    I have a walker that belonged to Mason.
    I'll use it 20 mins a day max..I think the health people worry if a baby is stuck in one for hours.
    With sensible use they're fine.

    mind you mine was from ebay so i would be careful if buying one from there, it was from a proper baby shop brand new though!!
    Jamie would bounce up and down in his and he therefore unhooked the seat and slipped on his bum!!!

    hi

    well these are banned here cuz too many babys got hurt but its dumb cuz the babys got hurt by going dowb stairs whebn really its the parents faults where were the baby gates :evil:
    Anyways my dad says we loved em as kids and they were grteat and my ohs daughter used it when she was a baby and it was fine.

    Seriously though it looks great. I took Jess out hers at 1 year and she was still another 6 months after that before she started walking on her own. I was paranoid that it would stop her walking but It didnt make much difference.

    Very funky

    Looks like fun, but personally, it's not my thing... sorry!! I would get a secondhand playpen and buy some baby duplo instead... more stimulating and you can still do a few chores whilst Braydon is safe... :D You can sell the playpen again later and the duplo will entertain him much longer.... :D :D
