Introducing Arla Big Milk - fresh cows' milk enriched with essential nutrients to support your child's growth and development, as part of a healthy balanced diet.
Not the walkers but the activity things that they sort of stand up in? DD was born with positional talipes and we were advised against using the walkers as they would encourage her to walk on the ooutside of her foot. Does the same go for these activity centres?
not a problemthey do not encourage propelling, and in fact support standingas with all things child related, don't overdo this one, so, tummy time/supported sitting/insert here all have a place tooHTH*disclaimer I have no formal quals in this field
Thanks BoysAreLikeDogs, thats really useful. So its the propelling in the walkers that causes problems?
As far as I can make out, yes - the tippy-toe action when propelling uses all the wrong muscles and can even delay walking in some childrenNo evidence for this apart from heresayHTH
Thats great, thanks BALDI might give one a try then as dd is getting pretty bored on my knee/lying down under her activity gym.
