‘My baby is on the move!’ A phrase all of us mother’s giggle at. It’s both exciting and daunting at the same time. Suddenly the world becomes a much bigger place and you’re having the ensure you have eyes in the back of your head for every hour of the day. I can’t count on one hand the amount of times my boy Jasper has bumped into something, lost balance when trying to stand, or just found him crawling in spots he shouldn’t be. If only there was a way to keep him occupied and allow him to move safely and freely around the house.
Enter the Baby Walker from Kiddies Kingdom. Baby Walkers are something my mum first mentioned to me when Jasper became a little explorer in my living room. She filled my head with humorous stories of me and my sisters barging into walls and tables in our when we were little, and I was a little apprehensive. Would this be another big bulky item to add to my ever-growing collection of baby items? Would it end up tucked in a corner as Jasper wouldn’t take to it? Would it even prove useful in helping him find his balance and feet?
Well, I can say this. It’s definitely the hilarious item I thought it would be. Thankfully, it is proving useful and is used on a day to day basis. The Red Kite Baby Walker from Kiddies Kingdom isn’t even horrendously sized. It’s smaller than other ones I’ve seen. Meaning if you’re space conscious in your home then this could be a good option for you. At first, Jasper seemed a little confused as to what to do with it. He soon got the hang of plodding around in it and has become a little cheeky chappy bouncing around. It has also helped Jasper with his footing already as he is now able to stand for long periods of time unaided when not in his bouncer.
For us parents, a baby walker is a godsend. It allows you to put your baby into a contraption that gives them room to explore in a safe way. If this gives us 10 minutes to get the washing out, or 30 minutes to eat our lunch then it’s an item to be had eh? What must have items did you use when your babies got on the move?
