Altamonte Springs, FL (PressExposure) December 15, 2006 -- Pontiac, MI Babies make their first struggling attempts to walk between months nine and 13. What parent hasn't been paralyzed with fear watching their infant take first steps, fall with a thump and worry the effort might result in injury? Alas, the pride of seeing first steps successfully taken is one of the great memories every parent enjoys!
Unfortunately, falls incurred in the learning to walk process are among the largest causes of infant injury. One new parent, Ken Headrick, decided to do something about the problem. He designed the Baby Learn to Walk Harnessâ¢. The patented juvenile safety product enables infants to safely and comfortably accelerate the learning process, while minimizing parental concern, worry and virtually eliminating the prospect of baby injury.
Mr. Headrick says, "I felt there had to be a safer way to protect infants from all of the features that make modern homes so livable but can hurt little bodies. Things like hardwood floors, turning into stationary objects, low tables and carpet edges, door sills and simple loss of balance can be very dangerous for babies learning to walk". The Baby Learn to Walk harness is a universal sized, nylon harnessed that acts as a trainer with parental teaching.
Baby Learn to Walk has retained the services of Duquesa Marketing, Inc., Ft. Thomas, KY marketing and product development consultants, to handle the products offshore production, branding, marketing and licensing. Geoff Ficke, Pres. of Duquesa Marketing says, "The juvenile products market is booming and products offering compelling safety features are exciting. Mothers that have been exposed to the harness are amazed at its features and benefits. The ability to mitigate child health risk is exciting".
"We anticipate a spring 2007 product launch", said Nancy Ficke, General Manager of Duquesa Marketing. "Baby Learn to Walk will be introduced into multiple sales channels, including retail, e-commerce and international markets".
