I have a very happy 4.5 month old with reflux. He is trying his best to cope with it and does a very good job. He smiles all the time. I noticed that he likes it when he sees your face and I know babies with reflux should not have too much pressure applied to their stomach, especially at this time when reflux is at it's peak (between 4 and 7 months), so I was curious if the baby walkers would be helpful in reducing reflux since the baby would be upright. Has anyone had success with this? I was thinking of a Bumbo seat as well, but I though that might cause pressure on their stomach.
Our pediatrician advised very strongly against using walkers. He said standing upright applies too much pressure on the baby's back if the baby isn't ready to be in this position.
Of course, this is the opinion of our pediatrician. I'm just communicating what he told us, so there's no authority at all in what I said. But at least is enough to conclude that you should talk to your pediatrician before buying a walker.
