baby walker safety
Baby walkers are designed so that babies can sit in the
walker and then move it around by pushing it along with
Although, they're called baby walkers, they are not really
designed to help babies learn to walk, but more to give
them a degree of mobility, to have a fun playtime session
with the parents (or carer) and for your baby; the fun of
being able to see the world from a different more up right
position. The following advice is essential to consider before
your baby uses a walker.
• carefully follow the instructions
• always check the walker is correctly assembled, thoroughly
read over the user guide or instruction leaflet that comes
with your baby walker. Keep it in a safe place, should you
need to refer to it again at any time.
• never leave your baby unattended- the parent or carer
needs to share and be part of this play time activity.
only use on flat surfaces. Check surfaces are flat and free
of objects that may cause tipping over.
guard all fires, heaters and cooking appliances, remove
hot liquids, electrical flexes and other potential hazards
from your baby's reach.
• prevent collisions with glass in doors, windows, furniture,
and any access to stairs or steps.
• be aware of your baby's development
• baby wolkers are intended to be used by babies who can
unoisted (from approx six months) and then only for
periods e.g. 20 minutes to a maximum of 30 minutes.
• make sure both your baby's feet touch the floor - the seat
height should be adjustable for this purpose.
remember your baby will move much more quickly,
particularly in a reverse direction, than when crawling.
• walkers are not suitable for already accomplished walkers.
• general safety.
always lock all castors when using in activity mode, unlock
all castors in walker mode.
• confine use of the baby walker to one room at a time,
keeping doors shut.
never carry the walker with your baby in it.
All our walkers conform to (BS) British Standard EN 1273:2005
- please only use baby walkers to this standard - baby
walkers with older standards are less safe. Be aware if
buying second hand.
