Best Baby Activity Jumpers

We had to find the “best” baby activity jumpers for our baby. That’s the type of parents we are. Karen is our fourth child but each child is like the first to us. When you start to view your newborns as just “one more in the pack”, it’s time to stop having children. We always try to mix our “new baby enthusiasm” with the experience we have acquired with each child.¬†Click the link for¬†jumper tables and chairs

With three young boys, the jumper was a necessity for us. It would be a place for Karen to enjoy exploring and playing, while being safe from her brothers. The jumpers that hang from the door frames weren’t an option. They have a high rate of accidents from bumping into the door frame (certainly if your big brothers think it’s fun to swing the baby back and forth.)

Our old jumper just wasn’t going to do it for Karen. We were able to compare the features of our old model with all the new ones and basically looked for 3 things:

  • Age of child – We wanted to start as soon Karen was able to hold her neck up, and to get a few good month’s use from it
  • Stimulation – A jumper isn’t a place to “plop” your child out of the way. The jumper should provide “intellectual” stimulation, as well as foster physical development
  • Safety – The most important thing. We checked all the reports

We checked out all the best baby jumpers and found the Fisher-Price Rainforest Jumperoo to be the best choice

  • Age — Karen was ready at 3 month so we needed a small snug seat that would hold her while being able to hold her when she was bigger too. The F-P seat cradles the baby’s bottom. It has 3 levels of height for growth
  • Stimulation–360 degree turn – why not see everything happening in the room? – Jumping activates music and lights. Lots of toys to play with. Birds above head-not everything is concentrated to the table
  • Safety — It’s Fisher-Price, Need I say more?
  • Compact (a bonus) – There are three other children running around – one little baby can’t take up more than her share of space
