Prepare your baby for walking
Babies begin to walk between the ages of 9 months and 18 months. Help your baby prepare for this exciting time by getting him or her a baby walker. By letting your baby practice taking steps in a baby walker, you will boost their confidence, increase their sense of independence, and strengthen their leg muscles. Below we list two top-rated baby walkers, along with other items your baby might like once he or she starts walking.
Bright Starts walkers
- Its chair has a high back, allowing more support for your baby’s back as they are on the move
- Has 3 adjustable positions, so you can adjust the walker to your baby’s comfort and height as they grow
- Has attached toys, so your baby can be entertained while on the go
- Can be folded for easy storage
Seated walkers are essential for babies to practice walking, which can take a while, so investing in a Bright Starts walker that adjusts as your baby grows is a smart idea.
Chicco Activity walker
Once your baby has become stronger and is able to stand up and waddle around on their own, a Chicco Activity walker will help them conquer the next level of walking – keeping their balance! Since they will be able to hold on to the handle of the walker, they will have the security of knowing that they will not fall, letting them get used to the idea of walking upright. The fun part for your baby is that once it starts walking, the walker starts playing music, so they know they are moving! Your baby is encouraged to walk further since it will hear the music stop once it stops.
Blankie upgrade, please!
While nursing your baby for the first 9 months of their lives, receiving blankets were the blanket of choice for sleeping. Now that your baby is more active and up for most of the day, getting them a baby starters little blanket would be a new and exciting accessory for them to carry around, as a plush toy animal is attached to it. They can hold on to it and even use it for teething in some cases.
