Q: When is the best time to put my child in a walker?

A: Never -- I can't really recommend them for children of any age.  Walkers give non-walking babies the ability to "drive" (without a license!). Without constant supervision, however, young children risk injuries -- falling down stairs or ending up in places you don't want them to around your house. As for toddlers and older children, they usually don't enjoy walkers since they already know how to get around independently.

My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website www.SleepBaby.org - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! Can’t imagine life without it! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out!
