If you're looking for the best baby walker that's out there and the best options to look out for then have a look at this quick guide. It will tell you the best features and hopefully save you some money.
The benefits of a baby walker are clear for every new parent to see. They give your baby a level of freedom they've never known since birth. They also provide a certain level of entertainment too. That can be from loads of features that you choose, or getting a baby walker with space to put you're own toys on it.
It's also a great aid in having your baby take it's first steps. This helps develop the leg muscles quicker. This also helps in the development of your baby's inquisitiveness. Because he'll be able to explore unaided for the first time, he'll be off looking at all the new things to enter his world.
Baby Walker Features
The best features to look out for in a baby walker are safety features. This is the most important thing above all else. Features like brakes to stop it moving. You also want to be looking at how interactive it is. So things like the play centre. Does it have music and sound? Does it have lights?
We feel that brakes are a must have in a baby walker and so is interactive noises. As much as you'll want to take the batteries out of them, they're great for your baby's development and growth.
One more important thing to think about is whether you want to get a sit down baby walker or a stand up baby walker. Both have the good points and this all goes down to which you feel is the best fit for you.
Seated Baby Walkers give your child the option to play and eat and also get around, but mobility is not as easy as it is in a standing baby walker.
Standing Baby Walkers give your child more practice in learning to walk and will help build muscles in the legs quicker.
You can get some great 2-in-1 baby walkers which can double as a sitting or standing, and even a baby swing too. VTech and Chicco do a good range of these that you should check out. Chico also do a good example of the kind of things to look for on a seated baby walker. The Chicco dance activity walker centre provides loads to help stimulate your baby.
It's worth reading the customer feedback on baby walkers too. Some of the most common complaints are wheels to stiff for good manuverability on thicker carpets and the biggest one of all has to be the noise level on some of the activity centre baby walkers. Other things to look out for are adjustable straps so your baby won't fall out the bottom if the opening is to big and look out for a baby walker that can fit though a standard doorway.
