Baby walkers are supposed to keep toddlers from falling while learning to walk-- but a toddler can still fall down the stairs.
Despite warnings, researchers reveal nearly 25 thousand children are injured every year while in walkers- mostly from falling down steps.
The researchers aren't calling for a ban, but they want a new design that would require walkers to be wider than a standard doorway.
The current U-S requirement states a walker can be narrower if a mechanism is installed to keep the walker from falling down stairs.
The study results are in the August issue of Pediatrics.
