My dd is 8 months and she loves being in her walker which is fantastic watching wizz around. But the problem is now she does not like being on the floor, she has no signs of crawling etc. Should I not use the walker for a while and get her used to being on floor? Any idea anyone??

do you have carpet or flooring? If its flooring it might just be because its cold...

we have carpet, also tried putting her on playmats etc!

Maybe she doesn't like being so low and like to see what is going on...

have you tried getting on the floor with her & playing? (ie on your tummy)

What about if you get down on the floor with her? Put her in the walker when you are busy, and on the floor with you when you have time to play?

Tried laying on tummy with her, tried laying her on sofa beside me, she is a bit better on sofa, all I am worried about is her not crawling etc.

don't worry about her not crawling, friends of mine had kids who didn't till they were much older. will she sit and play with toys you put out for her? or does she get frustrated?

8 months is still quite young for crawling, hl - one of mine didn't crawl until 12 months and the others were quite late too.

I would let her keep using the walker as long as she loves it but give her some floor time every day too even if she grumbles.
