So it is better, if possible, to provide a designated, segregated spot for each baby in order to guarantee uninterrupted sleep for the infant. ...Read more

When i can put my babies on the walker they are now six months?

Not now: I do not recommend using a walker with babies this age. Most children can use a walker with close supervision at nine months but i still don't really care for walkers because they allow your child to be more mobile than their bodies are ready for. They can get away from you and hurt themselves before you know it. ...Read more
