I know a lot of mom's do not use walkers anymore. Did you use a walker with baby or plan too?

Do you remember when you started using it by any chance? Did you stop using it when they started walking on their own?

I never used one and I honestly didn't know they still sold them until I saw a friend using one for her child. 

When I was a baby, I fell down the stairs in one! I still have a scar on my chin from it.

I started using it when they were able to touch the ground flat footed, and yes I quit using it when they were walking.

Nope. They don't even help with walking.

My boys used them a few times but they preferred the exersaucers/jumpers. They really didn't spend to much time in things like that, because they preferred crawling around.

Waste.  They are not needed and don't help develop the muscles needed for walking.
