Bounce, jump, and jiggle... We are in that in-between stage; Baby Girl is no longer considered an infant, but she's barely a toddler. She's a love bug and a sass monster. She needs to be nurtured, but also wants to exert her newfound independence. 

I can barely keep her still and calm. She wants to scoot around the house, exploring and discovering and getting into all sorts of naughty trouble. I can't contain her in a high chair or a carseat--girlfriend wants to move.

Why we love Baby Jumpers

It's an amazing developmental phase, but it's completely exhausting keeping up with her constant comings and goings, and making sure she's safe. I can barely get anything done when she's in active mode. And in-between naps she is always in active mode.

But there is one way I can snag a solid 10 or 15 minutes. I put her in her exersaucer or jumper for a quick cardio session. Of all the gear, it is the one item that she still loves--because she can jump and play and dance around like the energetic bunny she is. She can work out her energy, but remains stationary--making it a win for both of us!


She's been using this thing since she was six or seven months old--so it's gotten plenty of play. She still interacts with the toys and attachments, and so it's worth the small splurge.
