    Yep, agree with the article. And I say the same thing about tummy time and sitting children in walkers and I'm laughed at.

    Can see some interesting points but both physios who work with my dd encourage her to walk. ... By helping her walk. So yeah. .. I don't think this is 100% on the money.

    It's not really based on firm evidence.. & I just feel like there are much worse things. A few minutes every now & again of daddy playing walking with a baby really isn't going to be horribly detrimental!

    Sometimes articles like this mean well, but are really just an opinion piece, which will make some parents second guess themselves on something that really doesn't matter!

    (Ranting here I know)

    This is why I dislike bumbos . Forces kids to sit up before their bodies are able too .

    It's a big thing in France. I believe it is one of the reason these kids are so confident and independent
    @Tamtam French physios would never walk a baby so I guess it depends on how they have been schooled.

    I think this article is a bit OTT.
    I doubt anyone is 'walking' their baby for the length of time it takes for these negative effects to occur.

    Yeah I'm another who thinks it's a bit OTT. I have walked both of mine, because the both want to. As soon as DD crawls over to me and puts her hands in mine she's off trying to take steps. I don't see the issue with it.
