Need help finding a walker with rubber wheels, anyone who can help?

We have a hardwood floor and all the plastic wheels make scratches in it. Do you know of one that has rubber wheels?

  • Save your money. Just don't use a walker. A crawling baby won't damage your floors.

    Walkers are dangerous and can tip over by getting caught on a carpet, threshold, or just from the baby being top heavy.

    They allow a youngster to be more mobile before developmentally ready for it and allows them to reach things they normally wouldn't reach making the walker a reaching hazard.

    It encourages "toe walking" which is bad for the development of the feet, legs, and hips.

    The constant "dangling sit" also interferes with leg and hip development.

  • I never used one. I had an exersaucer that I used for a couple of months. But, they did not like it.
