I'm thinking of getting B a jumperoo as he loves bouncing on me and is getting bored of his bouncy chair. Are they worth the money? They seem very expensive for something that they will only use for a couple of months. Also, is there much difference between the different designs?

Best thing since slice bread! J wasn't sure for a while but in the past couple of weeks has suddenly started loving his, he now spends an hour at a time (I take him out after an hour as he's only 4.5 months and I think any longer would be too much for him). We read reviews online and went with the Rainforest Fisher Price one as this seemed to be theist popular and we haven't been disappointed.

The best thing ever! Ours was a present but if I hadn't received it, I would have bought it myself. It's fab for entertaining him while I do a bit of cleaning or have a brew, and now hes rolling and causing trouble its a nice safe place to put him. It does take up a lot of space but I tuck it in the corner of the room, once he starts cruising or not bouncing (as hes on the last level) I'm going to collapse it and store it in the loft.

Thanks ladies - what age did your LO start using it? Ben is 13 weeks, but has fab head control, is he still a bit little?

We bought one for C when she was 23 wks, but she could have gone in it earlier. I think we put S in it for short period from about 3 months with a towel to support her and the wii balance board underneath. She's 22 wks now and loves it and bounces while laughing hysterically. I think my tiny eldest used it for around a year to 18 months as she was late walking. It never left the highest setting either!

Best. Invention. Ever.
we were given it as a present, but i would have paid twice what it actually costs as we used it so so much. C loved the music and toys, but loved the bouncing more. we used it from around 4/5 months, but could have used it from a bit earlier as she had fab head control very early on.
when they are so little, using it for a little while wouldn't be too much of a problem, but putting weeny babies in there for an hour is probably not that good for them. i only left C in there for longer (eg an hour - which is still over how long is recommended) once she was able to touch the floor with her feet, bounce confidently, and be able to hold her head properly without lolling about.

What BW said about times- J started using his at about 15/16 weeks but only about 5 mins at a time, he's been able to hold his head pretty early on. He can touch the floor now but to begin with he had a cushion under his feet. I think the recommendation is 6 months to start using but you know your baby.

We've got one as it cost very little from mils tesco with her club card points and discount. I'm going to ask H to put it up when he returns home. E loves being on her feet. Has fab head control and can roll (I'm also a bit concerned she'll start escaping the bouncy chair soon as she pushes her feet down and wriggles up). She's 11 weeks and will be 15 when we put her in. Only for very short periods at first I'd guess

I recently bought the discover and grow version but returned it for the rainforest one which is much better IMO. The seat turning is stiff on the discover and grow and the sound didnt work properly, but that could be a one off fault. Kiddicare and amazon have had good prices recently.

Check at your local nct sales there are often a few there - definitely great we have loaned ours to Olivia's nursery until a time we may need it again

Money well spent here, used from about 15-16 weeks for quite a few months. Would def recommend!
