As a baby grows, they surely go through phases. Usually for the rest of their life – even to the point where there’s no point in using a baby monitor! In most cases, watching your child go through these phases, only makes being a parent much better. One of these phases is transitioning from crawling to walking. Maybe you’ve decided now’s a good time to get a baby monitor so you can ensure they don’t walk themselves into dangerous situations. Or, maybe, you had the exact opposite thought because you think they can handle themselves. Regardless, as a baby learns to walk, especially if you have carpets on your floor, it’s time to look into the best baby walker for carpets (and after that of course comes chores and using household appliances).
Things to Consider When Purchasing a Baby Walker
The baby walker market is huge and, with all the competition in it, each company needs to do something to make theirs stand out. Why else are there more than a thousand different ones to choose from? So, with so many features and different purposes, or types, of baby walkers, there are a few things to keep in mind when picking out the best one for your child, and possibly, the rest to come.
First, determine if you want one that’s seated at all times or, a sit and stand. Some allow your child the privilege to eat, or have a snack ready, right in front of them (a food tray). Also, see if you need one that has an immobile feature and a brake pad. Finally, one last common concern for baby walker purchases, is the price and portability.
