The walker or the babysitter is to be blamed?

I received a call from abah (my dad) early this morning. It's 7.30am and his first sentence was, "Dah bangun belom?" Haha.. Cepat2 je I reply dah dah.. Padahal tengah mamai lagi time tu. Ampun bahh.. Tipu sunat hari Ahad :D He asked weather I have read today's Harian Metro. And of course the answer is NO, I'm still on the bed.. duh! Well yesterday, there was one misfortuned event of a 7-months baby. He died after falling from his walker. Innalillah.. Such a tragic event for a little baby. He's the only child some more! :( MasyaAllah.. I hope his parents will have all the courage with them to face this heartrending incident of their little precious. Amin..

You may read the whole story here: Pengasuh Bayi Cuai

The reason abah called me at that instant because he was so concern with little Faheem after reading the news. Well I have started putting him in his walker since 2 weeks ago. Abah repeatedly mentioning on not to let him in his walker all alone by himself. I really have to agree with abah. No matter how solid or big the walker is, unpredictable incidents may happen in a blink of an eye if you ever loose sight of your little ones.

That's the reason why I'm so fussy while searching a walker for Faheem before this. Most walkers that I found were very simple. You know, with that 4 sticks crossing each other. Until one day I saw this baby walker. It's My Dear: 2 In 1 Baby Step and Walker. I just fell in love at the first sight when I first saw it while browsing LittleWhiz. Me and dear husband eagerly search for one (in order to physically look at it before purchasing) at Jusco and Toy's 'R' Us but to no avail. I get frustrated a bit. I really want it but I want to see it in real life first.

After gave up of searching finally we've made up our mind. Let's purchase it directly via the internet. Hopefully it is as good as we have read in the descriptions. And the pictures too! After 4 days of waiting anxiously finally the most awaited obsession has arrived. And alhamdulillah.. We have made the best decision honey :) I love it and so do Faheem.

These are the walker descriptions:
  • convertible to a training walker (it's a bonus!)
  • all plastic, luxurious walker with 3 leg
  • 3 height level adjustment - will keep fit your growing baby
  • sound, light & toy can stimulate and entertain baby's sense of sight, hearing & touch :)
  • wide base for stability (the most important criteria)
  • weight : 5.8kg

By the way, I fixed the walker all by my self. Until that I realized, yeah.. I am an engineer! Haha..

  1. wawa bestnyer walker faheem! canggih tul brg2 bb skrg kan. rasa mcm nk jd b jugak je hihi. btw aku plak mmg xplan nk guna walker sbb rmh jepun kecik plus aku prefer bb to move by himself. tp kwn dh bg free so guna gak la. just utk ltk ihsan kt dapur masa aku msk. tu pn skrg dia dh xnk dok dlm tu (terpaksala aku back carry wahhh penat!). to me walker can be a big help la kalau nk ltk kejap2 time kiter wat keje. but during other time better bg baby learn to crawl. lambat jln sket n crawl lama2 sket xpe. sbb crawling important for baby's mind development! :D

  2. aku pulak bli walker ni sbb faheem tu active sgt. die beguling2 atas toto tu within seconds da smpai lantai dh. risau nnt kang tehantuk kpale or mulut ke lantai. so that walker is a good help la time nk msk ke, solat ke, rehat2 kejap ke. same la mcm ihsan. 5 min je plg lame die nk stay dlm walker tu. lps tu duk angkat2 tgn nk bgn. kne bwk beguling, maen lompat2, maen gelak2, bru die nk duk dlm walker blk. aduhaii.. aha. aku pn duk usha ari2 ble la awang ni nk merangkak. kekeke.. skg asik angkat2 bontot time mengensot tu. ihsan merangkak bpe bulan ina?

  9. hello back! nop nop.. this walker is totally the same as other walkers. dpn, belakang, pusing kiri, pusing kanan. sume bole. i was curious about the same thing before this! hehe. sbb kalo tgk gamba mcm it has a limited maneuverability kn. but it's not. the wheel that u r seeing is a dummy one ;) the real wheel is actually covered inside the 'dummy wheel' it self. u shud go get one! =)
