Baby Bouncers - when to stop using?
Aug 9, 2010 4:02PM
Just a quick question - how old was you baby when you stopped using a baby bouncer with it? I'm looking at buying one which says it is not suitable for babies who can sit up unassisted - is this normal?

I think that is normal as when they can sit up they can bend forwards and this can make the while thing catapult over IYKWIM. Some have full harness straps on them - including shoulder straps, but tbh since my LO can sit its a bit of a struggle getting her to recline even in her car seat!

My lo is almost 10 months and still in her mamas and papas bouncer but she has learnt to climb out of it, so ours will probably go away soon, but she can sit unaided, crawl and stand. I use it for keeping lo sitting for a while after her bottles as she has reflux.

Our LO was around 7 months when we stop using it purely becasue he could wriggle out and would bounce so hard it nearly tipped over.
But for those first 7months it was a god send and i couldnt have lived without it x

hi everyone, new here but desperate for advice! My son is 1 month old on Tuesday and has been bottle feeding for the past 2 weeks. He has had problems since. He is extremely irritable, I’m sure my Son doesn’t have anytime while awake not crying, he cries ALL the time and I try EVERYTHING with no success. I have been to the hospital and doctors and they are so very unhelpful, they just tell me he has colic and basically I have to deal with it. I am almost certain, and the hospital also said, he has reflux (silent) as he rarely spits up but it is getting far worse and he is becoming more and more irritable, coughing after feeds and in between and starting to refuse feeds, scream, want them, take them and scream again. He has had Carobel from the hospital as they didn’t want to give Gaviscon due to chance of constipation, but it did absolutely nothing for him. He is now simply on infacol but has trouble pooing, which causes him distress, but is very runny. I guess i am I am desperately looking for advice on what to do, as it is increasingly hard with a baby that cries all day and won’t sleep or settle due to milk coming back up. I feel like I’m missing something and not giving him what he needs? HE IS SUCH A HUNGRY BABY! I feed him, change his nappy, cuddle him, sing to him, wind him, put him in swinger, walk round house, car - I am lost! Health visitor has done a referral to dietician however who knows how long this will take! Dad is lactose intolerant. Also, how much does your baby eat, or did eat at 1 month? Mine wants food every 1.5/2 hours! Please help!
