  • A walker is one of the worst things you can get for your child (developmentally) because of the very issue you are inquiring about.

  • GET RID OF THE WALKER! i will bet she is "learning" to walk with this and she is not learning properly. if you need to, buy a bouncer thing, it looks like a walker, but is stationary. plus, how cool would it be to just sit and bounce! lol

  • The ligaments are loose(normal). The only way they'll tighten up properly is with correct walking motion, not the oddball ways a walker allows them to go.
