my children nampak gayanya memang lambat berjalan. ariana only started walking bertatih at 15mo. meniarap after 4 mo. merangkak tak ingat pulak (kena refer entry lama). since ariana, my relative (not my immidiate family) mostly suggested that we use walker. and she was compared to my other relatives yg dah mula menapak. now its mikhail's turn. he only started to turn over at 5mo. and just a week ago started crawling n climbing. lambat kan? and i guess he might follow his sister and started walking after 1yo. its a slow progress but im still proud of him anyway (i believe all parents do proud of their own children). kebetulan pulak my cousin also had a baby boy 2 weeks after me. dengan putihnya (pfftt!), debab, suka makan, dah mula memanjat at 7mo (double pfftt!) but i still insist on NOT using walker simply becoz :
1. my house is small. celah mana dia nak bergerak plak?
2. i've seen my cousin n sil (ini cikgu ceritalah) yang jalan berjingkit at their 1st 2 years becoz of walker usage. n they have been said that their legs are a bit weak sebab dah biasa tergantung kan. ok, bukan semua tapi ini from MY family ok.
3. rumah bbsitter ada slight step so risau roda tersadung ke hapa.
5. i've asked my aunty (their bs) if she need a walker to ease her work and she said no need *jimat duit.fuhh!!*
