Why?

If they are not ready to walk, they are not ready to walk. By placing them in something that can walk for them, you are depriving them of the experiences they need to develop their gross motor skills without props. They need to develop through the natural milestone development, not forced to use muscles they shouldn't really be using if they aren't ready. Every baby needs to work naturally through each milestone stage. A walker interferes with that.
