Help! I have a beautiful 9 mo old baby boy who is all over the place in his walker but refuses to crawl or pull up on anything! Am I doing something wrong? He gets mad when I try and make him lay on his tummy and rolls over and screams to be picked up or sat up. He's also not sleeping through the night and refuses to use a sippy cup and only wants a bottle! He eats baby food and is doing very well with that but just would rather be in his walker! And he gets EVERY WHERE in that thing! Any suggestions would be amazing!

Thanks
Leah

Get rid of the walker! There is a reason they don't make them in the USA anymore, they are insanely dangerous and can impede your child's ability to walk on his own. At 9 moths your child should be able to sit and hold the position; some babies can quite sit up alone at this age. Time to start learning to ignore his tantrums. So what if he has a fit, so what if he does not get his walker? After a few days he'll start crawling and pulling up. You do realize he cries for the walker because it is easier?
