Objective The objective of these analyses was to explore maternal antenatal
decisions about baby walker use, factors associated with these decisions and the relationship between antenatal plans to use a walker and postnatal walker use.
Design Cross sectional study. Setting Mothers-to-be (n = 1174) participating in a cluster randomised controlled trial of an educational package to reduce walker use in 64 general practices in the East Midlands of the United Kingdom. Method Data on plans to use a walker, socio-demographic and economic characteristics, partner's views on walker use, knowledge of walker-related injury and attitudes towards walkers were collected at entry to the trial by means of a self-completion questionnaire. Data on post-natal walker use was collected by postal questionnaire nine months after delivery.
