Are these Baby Walkers going to disappear? If so what is the substitute for walkers? There is an ongoing debate and experts are not only concerned about the use of baby walker safety. They think baby walker compromises natural growth. When infant gets used to baby walkers, it misses out crawling. Crawling means falling down then standing up and this strengthens the baby's muscles. Starting walking without a walker will make the baby miss the balance. Some also refers baby walkers as a danger. They believe that as soon as putting the infant on a walker, he/she suddenly realizes its mobility that is beyond its control. Research shows that babies move three feet per second on the walkers. This may lead them to dangerous places.
