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.
