The Benefits of a Jumperoo for your baby

Jumperoo for babyI love seeing my son grow and mature right before my eyes and recently he reached the milestone where he can hold his head up steadily with great neck control. He is only 3 months 15 days old, weighs 16lbs, and 20 inches tall.

As eager parents, we wanted to help him reach more of his milestones while having fun in the process. We found that a jumperoo can be a useful tool for his early age development because they promote motor skills, sound training, all the while providing the baby a safe environment with less parent supervision.

For me, taking care of the little one on my own and having a jumperoo can be a lifesaver. While my son is playing safely in the jumperoo, I can take a quick bathroom break, do a little cooking, or do some other chores on the side while watching over him. I’m confident the jumperoo will provide a safe local environment were my son can rotate and grab items because my son will have a limited distance to reach. According to the manufacturer’s requirement, parents should not use the jumperoo if your baby is able to hold their head up unassisted. Also, parents should stop putting their baby in the jumperoo if your child is able to climb out and walk because of potential safety hazards for both scenarios.

Most jumperoos have plenty of objects for your baby to reach and grasp. These objects will build their hand eye coordination as they are learning to coordinate with new motor skills.  Some will have music to go along with their playing. The sound will help them create an action and response awareness. For instance, the jumperoo that I have will play music when he jumps or when he rolls a particular toy. As they become more familiar with the sound they can learn to activate the sound they like most.

Well, the main function of a jumperoo is to get your baby to start developing their leg movement. By placing your baby in an erected up position, it will give them a new perspective away from the ground.  The jumperoo will give them an opportunity to start mimicking the people that they see and hoping start using their leg muscle in the process.

Overall, a jumperoo is a great item for parents to consider because of the educational benefits, the fun, and the safety it can provide. Give it a try and your baby will love you for it.

Evenflo Delux Developmental Circus Activity Center Review

Evenflo Delux Developmental Circus Activity CenterAre you looking for an affordable entertainment center for your newborn? Well, consider the Evenflo Delux Developmental Circus Activity center as an option that is filled with many fun and safe activities.

Here is one economical reason to purchase this activity center. All of the Evenflo’s fun zones are battery free. Your infant is able to play with the spinning wheel, twirl the picture carousal, pull and tug on all the springy cute animal characters without any batteries attached to the entertainment center.

But, having no batteries means no musical songs to go along with the fun activities. As a parent, I get enough baby songs from all the other toys my son plays with. So having this entertainment center without music is a welcome break.

The Activity Center is a great tool for your baby to start jumping and moving around because the seat that holds the baby is able to rotate 360 degrees. Great if your baby is learning to reach for objects and different play zone activity.

As your baby grows the Evenflo Activity Center will grow with them because the legs have three adjustable heights, until your baby gets too big (over the max height limit of 30 inches). So parents can plan on their babies playing with this entertainments center for a while.

Let’s not forget the Evenflo Excersaucer is one of the safest jumping systems for your baby. With no mounted ropes or dangling strings, you can rest assure your baby is safe. The whole entertainment center is sturdy and has good weight, so when your baby is jumping around you don’t have to worry about the whole activity center tipping over. The downside about having sturdy and safe legs is the Activity center is less of a jumperoo. If your baby seems to be on the active side then you should probably look into a non-stationary style jumperoo like the Fisher-Price Rainforest set.

The safety also extends to all the toys. The springy toys around the play zones are safe for babies who are eager to bite on them. These play zones can serve as another set teether toys to help babies comfort themselves as their teeth are coming out.

Overall, the Evenflo Delux Developmental activity center is great to put your baby in because they can entertain themselves for hours in a safe environment that will help them achieve their important developmental milestones.

Does the rainforest jumperoo fold up for nice and easy storage?

Rainforest Jumperoo how to fold base of Rainfirest Jumperoo

Releasing the latch of the Jumperoo

The short answer is no. The rainforest jumperoo has the option to disconnect the legs from the base of jumperoo. Parents would need to look for the frame release button on the three support legs for the jumperoo carrier.

At the bottom of the legs are the base tubes. The base tubes have a release button that when pressed will un-latch the legs.  See picture below for further clarification on instructions. Once the one leg segment is detached, the jumperoo can be folded inward and tucked away.

Does the Rainforest jumperoo seat help babies that can’t sit up unassisted?

Jumperoo_for_BabyThe Fisher Price Rainforest jumperoo can accommodate babies that can’t sit up unassisted. However, the manufacturer’s safety recommendation suggest the jumperoo to be “Use only for a child who is able to hold head up unassisted and who is not able to climb out and walk.”

The design of the jumperoo has two options to help babies who need help in holding their head up.

  1. Babies can lean forward against the jumperoo activity area. There is enough space for them to use their hands to give themselves support. My son likes to rest his arm on the jumperoo and rest his head on his arms after he gets tired from playtime.
  2. Babies can lean backward against the red frog seat. The seat has a raised backrest that will provide extra support. The back support is padded all around and adds extra comfort for babies.

How to encourage your little one to jump in their jumperoo?

Not all infants will instantly start jumping when they are first placed in the jumperoo. Babies need sometime to adjust to their new surroundings, but once they are comfortable they will be more settle and start playing with all the fun activities of the jumperoo.

My son when he was first placed in his Rainforest jumperoo, all he did was play with the toy pieces that were right in front of him. After a few go around he start realizing he could use his toes and push off and spring up. In a couple of days, he became a pro and hopped like a bunny.

For those parents who are having more difficulties getting their newborn to jump on the jumperoo, you can try some these suggestions from other moms.

  1. A potential reason for babies not wanting jump in their jumperoo is their toes and feet are not properly touching the ground. So, parents could place towels, cushion, pillow, playmats, and books below their feet to give them further support.
  2. Teach your baby to jump by jumping yourself. This might sound silly, but babies love mimicking the actions of adults. Once they see a jumping mom or dad they might be encourage to try it out.
