Well it says 4 months, but I don't listen.

He does well at holding his head up, so I figured I'd get started on strengthening his legs.

He's precious.

I just want to add be very careful with those jumpers. At a conference I went to for work last year one of the child abuse speakers talked about jumpers. He said he gets cases referred to him every year where the child received a spiral fracture from using jumpers. The jumpers are designed to help children use leg muscles and bones that aren't developmentally ready to be used which leaves them susceptible to injury. Obviously this doesn't happen with every baby that uses a jumper, but you just never know.

OMG he's ADORABLE!

kids looooooooove the jumper, and when they really get going it's super cute!

I heard if a baby who isn't strong enough puts too much weight on their legs it will make them bow-legged! not sure if the jumper does that or not. anyone else hear of this?

Wow misty, I didn't know that. Alll I knew was that the jumper should be high enough so only baby's toes touch the floor, but wasn't sure why.

I'm just reading articles online and I do see if you use one too early, you can risk baby being bow legged.

Here's an article explaining the risks of jumpers if used too early. It does mention a risk of head and neck injury, which can cause trauma to the spinal chord. Kurly, I think I would wait at least until the recommended age on the jumper to start using it. You can never be too careful when it comes to things like this.

You meant well, he is really cute though! The same goes for the exersaucers too. If I put Remy in that jumperoo thing he would be a slouchy magee. He still doesn't know what to do with his legs. When I hold him straight up in a standing position he just flops. Just be careful. They put age requirements for a reason.
