The influence of infant equipment (walkers, jumpers, exersaucers, high chairs, etc.) use on early motor development is unclear. The results of this study suggest that greater use of equipment during infancy is related to fewer motor behaviors that represent developmentally important milestones. OT is well positioned to provide caregivers and their infants with resources to help establish habits and routines that support motor development through occupational engagement.
