We all love our babies a lot & care about every particular thing happening in their life. Seeing them growing up in front of us is absolutely a magical feeling. We just want to capture every moment for our memories. From the first smile to the first word, we tend to think about everything but have we thought about their first step? when they gradually start learning to walk.
Usually, between 6 and 13 months, your baby will crawl. Between 9 and 12 months, they’ll pull themselves up. And between 8 and 18 months, they’ll walk for the first time. It is a long journey of 18 months that a baby goes through while learning the process of walking.
As you watch your little one walking or running during play, you may ask yourself, “Is my child falling too much?”
Do you know in a study of 130 toddlers (12 and 19 months old), the researchers found that the toddlers fell on average 17 times an hour. If they were new walkers, they fell an average of 69 times an hour Thankfully, most bumps require a kiss and maybe even some ice to make the boo-boo better (Lephart, 2014). The majority of babies tend to fall and hurt themselves while learning to walk? Babies and toddlers seem to always fall without us noticing, whether they’re just trying to sit up and fall backward or they’re just starting to learn to walk. It could be worrisome to see them like that. Thus, the back of their head needs protection at all times and at all costs. Your baby’s head needs a lot of care during the initial ages when they are learning to walk & until their muscles get strong enough. Gaining the strength to hold their head up is the foundation on which the development of a baby’s other moment is based. It helps them to roll over, sit, crawl & walk.
Considering this we have introduced Bc Babycare’s baby head cushion. It can completely defend the head and back of the child who is learning to walk and prevent the infant from falling down while learning to walk. A very good protector designed according to the baby’s body shape. Baby Head Protector is the greatest gift for your child.
Figure 1 Lightweight & Comfy for the backrest
Our product slips around your child’s shoulders like they’re wearing a backpack. The cushion then acts as the circular head protector that softens the blow to their noggin when they fall backwards. Not only does it protect their head from falling backwards, but it also helps prevent flat head syndrome when lying down. The hole in the centre gives room for their skull to keep its proper shape when they lie on the floor for extended periods of time. When not protecting their head, the backpack can just look adorably cute while attached to your child. It’ll make it look like your child is hauling around a cute little bunny on their back. The cushion features an angel, lion, elephant, clouds & bunny-shaped back and an opening on the cushion to give their head a little more room to move.

The Bc Babycare head cushion is made from cotton, is super soft and breathable, has adjustable shoulder straps that will fit babies 4-24 months old.

When should you be concerned about your child’s falling? There are a few common reasons why children lose their balance throughout the day.
- Pay attention when your child is falling often and ask yourself a few questions:
- Did the type of shoe he/she is wearing change? Many times, children face difficulty finding their foot placement with new shoes.
- Are they only falling when trying to reach the curb or uneven surfaces? Often vision can play a big role in a child’s ability to walk or run. If you find anything suspicious you should contact the eyecare specialist.
- Does your child only fall while playing with friends of his age? Children have to think constantly think about their next move during play, this could be the cause of decreased coordination.
- Try to pay attention to how your little one is falling sometimes a child may have a tough time clearing their toes while walking and falling. It’s a good idea to discuss it with a paediatrician for a possible reference to the physical therapist (Hubbard, 2019).
