Leaning forward in bouncy chair
Aug 28, 2010 10:38AM
James is 7.5 months, and has started to pull himself forwards, by the arch on his bouncy chair. I know he's strapped in, and shouldn't fall out!
But just wondered if anyone's lo does this, and if you have the same worry!

Eva does this too. She only goes in it now when I have a shower and I put her in the bouncy chair in the bathroom with me. I think I'm going to have to stop putting her in it though as she's getting so strong that I think she may be able to tip it over soon.

Hi - we have stopped using our bouncy chair for this reason. Although he is strapped in, I am worried that Toby could actually flip his chair over and seriously hurt himself. He's really heavy so would have a lot of momentum!

Ours did this and landed face first on a stone floor!!!!!!!!! It meant he was ready to sit up on his own and the chair was getting in the way. Ouch and not a bruise!

Sophie's 16 weeks and she's doing this very briefly for about 10 seconds. She couldn't tip it over yet though.

bouncy chairs are only intended for use up until lo is 6 months, because thats the average age for sitting they are no longer deemed safe, fisher price do some fab ones that adapt for a child and go all the way up to 3 years. xxx

Maybe bouncy chair wasn't the right name then, as this one does adapt.
I don't think this one is able to be tipped. xx

YES!!!! Adam is almost 7 months & has started to do this. He frightened the life out of me because he actually put his head under the bar and was pushing with his hands and basically trying to get himself out of it!! Its very scary so know how you feel!!

Yes, James puts his head under the arch, and also tries to bite the hanging toy!

Trying to conceive with PCOS.
Hi, I hope I’m posting this in the right place. I’m new to this so bare with me 🙈. Background - I was diagnosed with PCOS a little over a year ago and have been trying to conceive for just over 2 years. I have been to fertility appointments who haven’t found any additional problems (e.g. hcg scan came back clear) and my partners tests were all ok. I understand weight is a big factor with PCOS and I have lost 10% of my body weight as recommended and keep trying to loose more. The more time goes on the more deflated and useless I feel. Each time I get excited thinking it might be my time then I get a false test 🤦♀️ The fertility appointments are far apart and the months in between each one just seem longer and longer. I was was wondering if anyone had been through similar experiences and have any advice? I have also read online that ovulation sticks don’t always work for women with PCOS. Anyone have any advice on this? Thank you for taking the time to read this. x
