Baby Walkers Danger

 
     
  In some countries such as Canada, these baby walkers are forbidden due to the number of falls babies have suffered while using them.  
     
  A recent study form the Infant Hospital of Toulouse in France revealed that 68 babies were treated in one year in this hospital through falls caused while using baby walkers. Although 75% of these were just minor bumps, 21 babies were treated for serious concusion.  
     
  Take into account that the baby can reach a speed of 75 cm per second which makes falls quite considerable.  
     
  The idea that these make children learn to walk sooner is quite doubtful as well, at the most we may be talking about 2 or 3 weeks advance.
