Bouncer question? user banned
3rd May '13

Hey ladies.
My daughter is 7 months and I got gifted one of these back at christmas.,default,pd.html
Basically it's a stationary jumper with like a bouncy platform on the bottom. I've just been reading things about 'walkers' being detrimental to babies development and hips, so should I not be using it?
She's been sitting up unassisted for a couple months now and she does like it in the bouncer because she can be up and nosing at things, lol. But she's only in it for 10-15 mins at a time once or twice a day.
I figure moderation is key, but I'm not sure. Advice please? TIA!

That doesn't count as a walker as far as I am aware. I think walkers are the ones that have wheels and actually move.
We have that exact one for DS, he's nearly a year old and took his 1st steps about a month ago. And he loves it :D

As long as you don't leave her in there for a long she will be fine.

i've never heard this! lol. i know so many mummies that have these for their babies and they've all LOVED them and have never harmed them.
I'm getting given one from my sister once we've moved to our new house. (we don't have room in our current house) he loves it also :D x
