I 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.

The jumperoo is a great source of exercise for your baby. The best gauge when jumperoo play time is too long will be your baby. Your baby will probably cry or yell to get out or simply stops jumping because they are too tired for more. At that point, it’s time to give them a break and let him play on his tummy and playmate. My son typically plays in his Rainforest jumperoo for 30 minutes before he gets tired or bored and he usually plays for 3-5 times a days on the jumperoo.

With any baby toy that parents introduce to their newborn, safety is the highest priority. The introduction of the jumperoo to your baby is the same. Parents should wait until their baby can hold their head up without any assistance for a good 10-20 minutes. If their neck is not strong enough or if they get too tired then they are not ready for the jumperoo. Typically, newborns are able to reach this milestone around 3-4 months.
For the parents that we asked, 4 to 6 months is the typical age they start using the jumperoo for their baby to play. There are many different variety of jumperoos from companies like Fisher Price, Baby Einstein, EvenFlo and Bright Starts. These are all great companies to look for jumperoos and their track record for safety is of the highest standard.
