My son is turning 7 months old, is it o.k for him to use a walking ring, if not what are the reasons?
Thanks

Walking rings are not recommended especially for young babies like yours. The main concern is accidents and many babies ae injured by these devices.Canada has recently banned the sale of walking rings and other countries are likely to follow this example soon.
