We received the baby walker when my LO was about 8 months. At the time he was cruising very well and sometimes letting go for a second or so. I did not want to keep it because I had read that they could be unsafe. And since he was cruising so well I did not see the point, it just was not going to work well for our lifestyle.
So we returned it when he was about 8 months and 2 weeks and we got this.
At that age all he did was craw over to it and push the sound buttons, he really liked it.
Then about 2 weeks later he started to walk on his own. He took a step away from a table and with in a few days he was basically done with crawling. I was surprised(he is my first so I did not know it would happen so fast like that)
Then at 9-10 months all he wanted to do was walk walk walk. he would get up in the night to walk.
Then at 10 months he had walking down and wanted to play with his little car again. At this point he started to sit or stand(yikes) on it.
Then he discovered it had a hidden compartment and he loves to hide toys in it. Anytime I can't find a remote or sippy cup that is the place I find it.
Over time he has learned how to walk while sitting on it, at first I had to push him. He really enjoys it and I am glad we got this. I think if we would have stuck with the walker that he would have only used it for about a month.
