If your baby has started to cruise around the furniture and pulls themselves up to a standing position then it is about time you invested in a great quality activity walker. This is a truly exciting moment because it means that your little one has finally, and quite literally, found their feet! Yes, it can be a bit daunting to think that your baby is now on the move after months of staying put, but nothing gives greater pleasure than watching baby take a first step.
But baby walkers are not a new concept in modern living; they appear in numerous 14th and 15th century works of art, including the Book of Hours of Catherine of Cleves. The 16th century medical writer Ferrarius recommended them for training infants to walk and later in the 17th century they were taken as a symbol of mastering a skill through constant exercise with the child being upright, both physically and morally.
But health and safety also came into play as these early baby walkers prevented a child from touching a hot stove or fireplace and Ferrarius even illustrated a metal form which was worn on the child's head while using the walker, for protection in the event of a fall; a kind of makeshift crash helmet! Thankfully today, the design and craftsmanship that goes into making these baby walkers irradicates the need for metal crash helmets!
