Prepare Your Baby to Walk with Easeby Olga Sysoef
One concern many parents have is teaching their baby to walk. It may seem like it just comes naturally Ė and to an extent it does! However, there are things you can do to prepare your baby to walk.
Babies donít just wake up one day and start walking.
When your baby starts to become mobile, itís important to make sure that your home is a safe environment. Inspect your home to prevent your child from getting hurt on sharp corners, ledges, and stairs while your teaching your baby to walk.
You may also be tempted to head to the store and purchase a walker. However, when youíre teaching your baby to walk itís important not to use a walker. They can be dangerous and can cause accidents and injuries.
When youíre teaching your baby to walk, you may want to rush out and buy the perfect pair of shoes. However, recent research suggests that babies actually learn to walk better when theyíre not wearing shoes.
So save your money and teach your baby to walk without the little tennies. If you want your child to wear shoes, thatís okay, too. Just be aware that they wonít make it easier for your baby to walk.
If youíre going to buy shoes, follow a few simple rules of thumb. When you teach your baby to walk, you must make sure that his shoes are going to help instead of hurt. Look for shoes with flexible soles and flat bottoms. Pass up the high-tops and go for a shoe that allows your babyís ankle to move.
