Hi there

My doctor told me not before 4 months and no longer than 20mins at a time. I think from memory tho that i had my son in one maybe afew weeks from being four months.

hi, i think as long as your bub can hold their head up they will be fine. i had my son in one at 3 months but he was big (!) and he had good head control. also try to make sure your bub doesnt stand on his/her tippy toes.

One of the Occupational Therapists at the hospital told me they don't approve of Jolly Jumpers as it supports babys weight and doesn't encourage them to use their own weight.
This said, I still put Lachlan in one loaned to us occasionally and never for longer than 5 mins. He didn't use it until he was 6 months and stopped using it by 9 months.

My daughter loves her Jolly Jumper, she laughs til she hiccups then keeps on laughing! I put her in it when she was 3 1/2months old and she wasn't so sure at first until i gave her a little help then she realised what to do! I think its good for her cuz it stregthens their legs and they love to see whats going on from a standing position. She crys when i take her out though!! sad

the age to place your babies in a JOLLY JUMPER is when they are able to sit with thier heads stable or when they are able to sit in a HIGHCHAIR.

I am currently selling on on ebay if anyone is interested, it's a pick up only from QUAKERS HILL NSW sydney.
