Question: What is the right age to use a walker?
Answer: Hello dear. Baby walkers may cause delays in a child's ability to walk, crawl and balance, studies have proved that babies who use a walker may actually learn to walk about a month later than those who don't. Also it's prone to serious injuries and accidents. Usually walkers are not recommended. In case you want to start with the walker you can use it by 7th month.
Question: My baby is 6 months old. Please suggest if i can use baby walker ? If not, what is the correct age to use walker?
Answer: Hi dear it is actually not advisable to make baby sit in Walker. My pediatrician in Bangalore as well as at my native advised against using Walker reasons as below.

I have not used walker for my baby, he is now in his 9 month and he sits independent as well as stands on his own with support. What we did was making him sit and stand. Slowly i am teaching him walking with support.
