I know baby walkers are bad but I've never heard that jolly jumpers aren't any good for development.
We've had our DD in one since 10 weeks of age!! We started off with say 10 mins at the beginning & now she's up to say 30 mins at a time, a couple of times a day now.
The way I see it, if they can hold their head up then they're ready for it. DD has been stretching out her legs with a lot of force, she's been 'itching' to get into something - that something being a jolly jumper. She is a very strong little girl & always has been.
She's not overly active in it 'cos she is so young but she does enjoy it nonetheless. She too will get grizzly & that's just a sign that yes, she has had enough. Not to say that she hates it!! It's just enough JJ for now & to try again later when she has more energy to burn.

My baby was put in the jolly jumper at 10 weeks (with mum hovering nervously around) but he loved it straight away. Now at 15 weeks he plays in it for about 15 minutes twice a day.... He sometimes cries when I take him out of it, I think he would play in there until he fell asleep if I let him! I have also noticed that he seems to sleep better since using it. My sisters 6 month old also loves to play in it, she jumps around like there is no tomorrow and sleeps completely through the night, no problems.
