There are a few options of baby bouncers and jumpers if you intend to add bounce your pre walking baby's playtime. An activity jumper (stationary) is among the good choices. The second option is not always considered very safe: doorway jumpers. Since these jumpers suspend the seat from the straps that are attached to the overhead bungee type cable or a spring that is attached to any door frame.

But the question is how much bouncing does your baby really need? Little ones may get "seasick" due to the motion. Baby Bouncers and Jumpers will be accelerating the physical development of a baby. Babies kept in jumpers do push off the ground, yet the movement cannot strengthen their back or thigh muscles. These muscles are essential for walking and crawling.


Baby Jumper

Stationary activity centers, doorway jumpers and activity jumpers require little babies to sit up straight. Thus to use any of these, your baby should be capable of holding her head unassisted but unable to climb or walk.

Types of Jumpers:

Stationary activity jumpers

These jumpers are basically a hybrid consisting of a seat with toys around, but they definitely put extra "boing!" In a baby's bounce on suspending its seat from 2-4 enclosed springs. There are models with "fun learning activities".

Doorway jumpers

These models have a seat which is suspended from the straps that are connected to the bungee-type cable/spring that connects to the door frame top with spring clamp or stand in order to replace that door clamp.

Doorway jumpers have a fabric seat, an in-built frame to surround a child. Others come with a play tray to encircle the baby, bumpers (rubberized sides). Bumpers prevent nicks to the door frame, often not offering enough protection to the baby.

Irrespective of the design of the seat it is not at all safe to buy that with suspended overhead. Using stationary models that have side cables that are attached to any sturdy stand is way safer than free swinging jumpers from a stand or doorway. This eliminates the hazard of the jumper clamp from slipping off.
