Our baby is learning to walk, but not yet able to stand unsupported, and at the stage of needing to hold two adults' hands to be able to walk. Which is great- but my partner and I both have back problems, so the amount of time we can spend hunched over and helping with this is far below the amount of time our baby wants to walk.
A friend gave us a Fisher Price or something baby walker. I'll admit- I have bad blood towards it because I got my finger trapped in it the first time I examined it (which, y'know, doesn't inspire confidence that it's safe for my baby!)- but it also rolls way too freely. If we let him try to use it, our baby would push it out of reach before managing to stand.
I know that babies will walk along the furniture, but ours isn't that great with walking more "sideways" like that. I've seen some wood walkers but I don't know if any would be good. I know that parents are best because we can be more responsive and we wouldn't stop entirely- but it'd be nice to have something to give our backs a break.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
