Walking Wings

Our PT found this awesome new adaptation device for Reagan.  It's called "Walking Wings" and you can buy them at Babies R Us for $25.  Reagan is about 50% on her walker, she's interested some of the time but the other time she isn't.  Our PT wants us to get Reagan up on her feet as much as possible and this new little diddy can do that without forcing the walker on her.  Plus it's saving my back like crazy.  I know these aren't great shots, they were taken during PT but you get the idea of what it can do.
  (we have to constantly try and explain to Reagan she can't push the walker like that! haha i'm sure it's so much easier for her to lean on it and push it that way...)

So... would that help for kids who tend to fall alot? Josh is walking on his own, but outside has a bit of a problem with falling... and uneven ground. Would that work in that situation too?

Wow, that is great! I think it would have been alot easier for Bree to have had one. It looks like it will really help out!

Dang it! I wish I would have known that you needed walking wings. We just sent some to the DI!
I'm glad it's working for you!

Melissa, TOTALLY it would help Josh outside. We can help Reagan catch herself. She still can't really walk... she's kinda like a drunk little girl trying to take steps in this thing and you can pull up or back as you need. It's worth the $25 for sure!

Tiptoe, no worries, I didn't even know it existed until yesterday!! haha!
