Babies don't need baby walkers

[Pamphlet, 2005]

This A5 pamphlet has messages on both sides.

Injuries from baby walkers can be permanent. Babies in baby walkers have fallen, been burned and have poisoned themselves.

The best place for babies to learn to crawl and walk is on the floor.

Baby walkers are not baby minders and supervising them doesn't mean you can stop an injury. It's better not to have one at all.
