How walkers are helpful for babies to learn walking?
The manufacturing recommended age for the using the Melissa alligator walker is 9 months and up. There are many parents who want to put the baby on walker before the babies are able to walk independently and keep them unattended. I am not in favor of leaving children with walker before the appropriate age and strongly recommending all parents not to leave toddlers when they are in the push-toy mode.
By placing a child in walker before certain age and make her/him mobile for long time before she/he is mentally and physically prepared for it can lead to muscle weakening or even major injuries and accidents.
The testers of Melissa company were satisfied by the overall construction of the toy, they did note that the three cut outs in which the alligators move are a little rough at the edges. This was not an issue during testing, but parents should keep an eye out for possible splinters.
Most of the customers are happy and satisfied with the walker. There is a small group of parents who complained against the construction of the walker and are not happy with the design of the walker.
I would recommend you that the walker always be used under adult supervision. If your child is using a walker, always make sure to keep your eyes on his/her and be conscious all the time to avoid any sort of accident.
