Baby Stores Riverhead NY

Some parents are eager for their baby to walk. They think that a baby walker will help the process along. In fact, walkers make learning to walk a slower process. They strengthen muscles in the lower leg. But they don't help develop muscles in the upper leg and hip-the muscles most needed in walking. Check below for related information, products and services.

Some parents are eager for their baby to walk. They think that a baby walker will help the process along. In fact, walkers make learning to walk a slower process. They strengthen muscles in the lower leg. But they don't help develop muscles in the upper leg and hip-the muscles most needed in walking.

Walkers also make getting around too easy. They don't help babies learn balance and coordination.

Even worse, walkers are a safety hazard. They can tip over easily. In a walker, babies are more likely to fall down stairs. They can also roll into dangerous places.

A walker is an example of expensive, unnecessary equipment made for babies. Instead of buying a walker, get a sturdy wagon or push car. Show your baby how to push the car around the room or playground. This will help build the muscles and coordination he needs for walking.
