    Archie's almost 6 weeks now - and he's either being walked around or played with his Dad, breastfeeding with me or sleeping in his cot.

    It'd be great to have somewhere we could put him down, we did buy him a bouncy chair but he really doesn't like it

    Anyone have any recommendations? I think perhaps I should bypass the chair as he'll outgrow it soon and go straight to the baby gym?

    Funny that most babies love their bouncy chairs, but like your LO my DD hated hers and would not go in it! We had a play gym for her which she loved and used it until she was about 5 months, but then we took all the toys off and she still has them to play with.

    I can't believe I paid so much for that chair! And it looks so comfortable when I put him in it when he's tired I wish I could climb in it instead! :haha: I just don't know what he doesn't like about it.

    Anyone know of one that is easy to put away because we have a cat and a dog so I'd like to be able to keep it away from them when baby's not using it!

    I don't but we have a cat who we wanted to keep off the play gym and we just put lots of cushions over it, not sure if that would work for you with a dog too?

    We have put our gym into a playpen on the highest setting so she is off the floor, which stops the dog getting involved in it. Our baby loves her chair, but the bloody dog loves it even more, whenever it's on the vibrate function he tried to get in with her!!

    i must admit, we just waited for the sales and bought both :blush:

    as for keeping animals off, if you figure it out let me know! I had the gym (fisher price rainforest - Emilia loves it) out. Popped upstairs with her for 5 mins, came downstairs to find dog and 2 cats curled up on it! luckily easy to wash!
