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 long does a baby usually play on the jumperoo for?

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.
