    Hi all,

    Im after some advise !

    We put Logan in his walker to use as a seat really as he has already learnt how to escape the bumbo but he can walk in it !! :dohh:

    Do you think he is to little to be doing this ??

    He is not happy unless he is on his feet and he is so active im not sure :dohh:

    As long as baby can upport own head 100% not flop at all and can reach the floor then I wouldn't have thought a problem?! I just cannot think when Caitlin used hers I'm fairly sure around 4 months!

    Jumperoo?

    I think it depends how much support he is getting for his back. I know the bumbo is supportive that's why you can use them early. I'd be a bit wary of using one so young. Have you thought of a rainforest jumperoo?? loads of ladies on here have them. They are like a bouncer and i think they can be used early on. Kathryn has been in hers since 4 and a half months.

    I would of thought it was down to the amount of support on their back, how well they can hold their head up and how much weight/pressure is being put onto their legs.

    If he seems fine, and well supported then you should be ok!!

    I think as long as they can support their head and are well supported in the walker I suppose it would be ok. As long as it's only for short amounts of time to begin with x

    HV dont like walkers as they say they can tell the babys who have used them as they tend to tiptoe for a bit rather than walk on the full foot... chloe had a walker and was walking by 13 months. connor didnt have one and is still not walking he coming upto 15 months

    Thanks for the replies ,

    He hates the bumbo and within 15 seconds he is on the floor out of it , i had thought about a jumperoo but we already have a graco station and he just moans in that to ! I think he is just a typical man and moans about everything :rofl:

    I love walkers! Louis went into his by the time he was around 4 months, he was always very sturdy and it gave him (and me) much more freedom.. I know HVs aren't fans of walkers but I've never had any near misses with the walker and found it a life saver at times... Jumperoo is also a must have!!
