From the historical costuming list by way of Corba_girl - I also saw a round heavily carved Italian renaissance walker at a house museum in Milan.

If you look up "Ages of man" you'll find a lot of images of a baby walker. It is the visual reference for just past infancy and not yet old enough for the hobby horse stage.

Here is the one I made for my daughter. It isn't the most authentic of  things but I made it what I had on hand and she liked it.

Just trying to get ideas percolating- There dosen't seem to me much in the way of images before 3-6 yrs old and in most of that they seem to be wearing just smaller versions of their parent's style. http://www.larsdatter.com/children-renaissance.htm

I may need to see if I can trade or bribe any of my knitting friends for any or a set of these:
•Infant's knitted sock, vest and mitten (mid-16th century?). Baby clothes knitted in soft white wool; the mitten has a contrasting band, probably of naturally black sheep's wool.
