Other than keeping your baby busy for a while, jumpers are fab as they facilitate exploration, while also promoting hand-eye coordination and physical activity. They can help babies understand cause and effect by pushing different buttons, and also encourage sensory play, by stimulating motor, tactile and kinaesthetic senses.

However, to keep our little ones safe from harm, there are a few things to consider before purchasing a baby jumper.

Are jumpers bad for babies?

Baby activity jumpers are generally very safe. As with everything, there are some small risks. According to Healthline, jumpers can impact your baby’s posture by placing them in an awkward position. However, as long as you are using the jumper for short periods this should not be an issue.

Jumpers that are mounted to a door frame or beam might also create a slight risk. It is important to make sure that the space is clear. Babies could accidentally hit their head or other parts of their body on any objects nearby.

Finally, jumpers with wheels are not recommended, due to the potential of accidents such as falling down the stairs.

How long can my baby stay in a jumper?

According to the NHS, it’s best to use a baby jumper for no more than 20 minutes at once – plenty of time for a quick regroup.
