Do you want your baby to walk more than 1 year old? Don't use this thing!

If the baby learns to walk, he can't teach indiscriminately. Using the wrong method is equivalent to helping.

01 Walking with small hands

Seeing this picture, is it a big deal. Many parents see their children walking unsteadily and slowly. They are afraid that their children will fall if they are touched, and they can't help but lead their children. In fact, it is more dangerous to walk in this way. Children can’t keep up with the pace of adults, and it is easy to fall. There is also a risk of dislocation.

In 2013, Mr. Chen, a 30-year-old father in Zhejiang, took his daughter's hand and learned to walk at home. But before walking a few laps, her daughter burst into tears, and her left arm hung down and could not move. It was only taken to the hospital that the child's elbow was dislocated.

Walking with baby's small hand, in addition to easily hurting the baby, did the parents feel that their old waist should be broken? Give your baby a "crutch" and he will become more dependent on you and will not let go of your hand to walk alone, thus limiting his freedom. It is not good for children to master the sense of balance, perceive spatial relationships and establish a sense of self-security as soon as possible.

02 Walk by toddler

We have been verbose more than once or twice. When the baby walks with this kind of walker, the speed and direction of the taxi are difficult to control, and it is easy to rush to the dangerous zone, such as the kitchen stove, the stairs, and the bathroom. In case of an accident, the consequences are really unimaginable.

In 2015, a 9-month-old girl in Zhejiang was often alone playing in the walker, and her mother was busy in the kitchen alone. As a result, the child fell into the basement without guardrails directly from the first floor in a toddler. The fall resulted in a fracture of the child's left temporal bone and severe epidural hematoma. It took two days for the operation to move from the ICU ward to the general ward.

The child was handed over to the walker, and something like this happened. How regretful being a mother.

The walker is not only dangerous, but also affects the child's normal learning to walk. Sitting on a toddler will make your child's hips lean forward, like walking on tiptoe, and unable to control your own balance; and also reduce the chance of your child crawling. So "toddler" is really nonsense.

03Pull and walk with the toddler

Use the toddler belt to pull the baby away, although the possibility of the child falling is reduced, and the adult is more relaxed. But it is also prone to wrong walking styles and affect the muscle development of the legs, and the baby's freedom to explore the world is also pulled. After a long time, the baby's curiosity and excitement about the surroundings will be greatly reduced.

And some people are carrying in the back, the baby wants to rush forward, and it is easy to hurt the skin and develop a posture of walking on foot, which is harmful to the toddler.

Babies with early learning steps may have their legs leaping for a try in about nine months, while some cautious babies will not try to walk until 15 months. Don't be overly anxious. It is normal for the baby to learn to walk 18 months ago.

Here are some tips for everyone to help your baby learn to walk as soon as possible.


Learn to squat before you go

It is very important to teach the toddler to "squat" this skill. This action not only strengthens the muscle strength of the child's buttocks and thighs, but also teaches the baby to shift the center of gravity so that he can learn to protect himself. Moms can find a few of their favorite toys at their feet and encourage standing babies to pick them up.

In addition to squatting, the mother can also tell the baby (demonstrate in person): "If you feel wrestling and are afraid, sit down immediately." This is much simpler than squatting. The baby gets this skill and no longer worry about wrestling. Naturally, I dare to go bolder.


Learn to walk barefoot

Bare feet are more suitable for babies just walking than wearing shoes. Bare feet keep your toes firmly on the ground, and your baby will be less likely to slip. By allowing your feet to fully sense the ground, your baby can better balance and coordinate his pace, and also stimulate the nerves of the soles of the feet to promote sensory and brain development.

Wearing shoes early will not only help your baby learn to walk, but may also affect normal foot development. Because the baby's foot bones are still very soft, wearing shoes early can easily lead to abnormal bone development.

If you really feel that the room is too cold, add a pair of anti-slip socks to your baby.


Encourage every small progress

When the baby is willing to try to take the first step, the family must give the baby timely praise and support. This will make the baby understand that what he is doing is correct. A few more steps can be praised, so that the baby is more interested in learning to walk.

Parents accompany their babies to play games, and will make them fall in love with walking. For example, Mom and Dad sit face to face and let the baby walk back and forth. The baby's sense of security also rises, even if it falls, it is in the warm embrace.

When the baby is proficient, the parents will slowly increase the distance between them and let the baby go further and further.


Ensure environmental safety

The baby will go through a wall-walking process from crawling to walking independently. To protect themselves, smart babies rely on everything around them to help themselves walk.

The safety hazards that will prevent your baby from walking at home should be removed in time. For example, the sharp corners of the table can be covered with anti-collision strips to fix the cabinets that are easy to tip over, and the plug-in boards and fragile products are placed outside the reach of the baby...

With a safe environment, let your baby boldly pace!

Also, using toys to make your baby interested in learning to walk is also a good trick. For example, play ball with baby, and push and pull toys together. In short, it must be right for him to stand up and move! After all, a hard-working and active baby will definitely walk faster and more stable than a lazy baby.
