The purpose of this qualitative study was to understand the use of commonly used baby equipment by Navajo parents. The use of traditional equipment (such as cradleboards) and modern-day equipment (such as walkers) reflects both the practical needs of caregivers to protect their babies from harm and the desire to instill in their children cherished cultural values and a sense of belonging. Culturally sensitive education for Navajo parents on safe use of cradleboards and infant walkers is needed.
