There are a number of different characteristics you will need to take into consideration when shopping for the perfect baby jumper.
Baby jumpers have a recommended weight limit that will vary from model to model. Be sure to to choose a jumper suitable to your baby’s weight. Failure to adhere to these weight limits may result in the baby jumper breaking and injuring your baby.
Seats will differ greatly from jumper to jumper, here are a few of the features to look out for:
- Removable and washable seats
- Seats lined with plush padding for comfort
- 360 degree seat
On stationary activity jumpers that have a seat attached to a frame with springs, look for covers on the springs to keep your little one’s fingers from being pinched.
Some baby jumpers will allow you to adjust their height. Adjustable baby jumpers will keep your baby comfortable as he continues to grow.
A jumper is not a baby item that is continuously used. You will need somewhere to keep the baby jumper when it is not in use. If you are short on on space in your house then look for a jumper that can be disassembled into smaller pieces for easy storage.
Activity jumpers come complete with a number of different toys to keep your baby entertained. Some are electronic with sounds and flashing lights while others are different textures or make noise as they move.
When it comes to choosing the perfect activity jumper for your baby it is a good idea to closely examine baby’s current playing habits. Your baby may love toys that rattle or may even prefer toys that are soft to touch. Choosing a jumper that has toys that your baby already enjoys playing well ensure that your baby does not lose interest.
