Q.

walking ring

hi i would just like to find out whether the height adjustment is right in our 9 month olds walking ring are their feet supposed to be flat on the ground or on their tippy toes? Also how long could they go in it without it being bad for them

I am not in favour of the use of infant walkers. They certainly do not speed up a baby's learning to walk and they can occasionally lead to babies having accidents. If you are already using one,the plan is to get the the baby to walk with their feet on the ground.
