my 5 month old is a very uncontent baby and if i step away from him for just a min he starts screaming. I have 2 exersaucers right now for him and he hates both of them and wont stay in them very long. i have tried everything just so he can keep himself entartained and happy for just a few mins so i can cook dinner or do dishes but nothing works. So i was thinking maybe a walker would work and they have this cute cars one at walmart. I dont know if i should get it or not. he is so close to crawling and sitting on his own and i dont want to delay him that way. Everyones advice is welcome and let me know how your los did if they had a walker

Yeap I would they like to be mobile and it will keep them busy just be sure you keep a close watch. Be prepared to hear all the bs about not getting them. Is like people use them as babysitters and not watch them and shit happends you know. I am sure you arent one of those idiot people who then want to ban walkers for their stupidity.

Honestly, I liked the Jumperoo better than either the exersaucer or walker..

I like the walkers and the jumperoos those two are a must have. It keeps them entertain and they like it.

I doubt a 5 month old could touch the ground in a walker unless he was on the taller side. More of like a 7-8 month thing. Probably a waste of money right now, but if you bought it you would have it for when he gets older.

If he hates the exersaucer, he will probably hate the walker too.

my son loooved his walker. You just have to be cautious, make sure everythings out of his reach, as far as delaying him..my son used teh exersaucer and a walker and he was crusing at 7-8 months and walking great all on his own by 9 months.,
