Presentation Transcript


The primary objective of an exersaucer is to help the child build strength and grow

their organs. However, they are not the best for every age. Any exhausted caregiver

will jump at any opportunity to help them with the baby. Exersaucers many thus

seem godsend, but as the Family Doctors Frisco would tell you, nothing can be

further from the truth.

Exersaucers may become a sort of additional problem if introduced too early. They

can cause poor posturing causing the overdevelopment of calf muscles. In severe

cases, the baby can begin toe walking – not a good thing.

The truth of the matter is that there is an exersaucer age range. You will typically

find each exersaucer with a particular recommended age. However, children have

different development times.

Some children can begin walking earlier than others or develop faster than the

recommended age. So, the real dilemma is, when can you introduce the exersaucer?

Which is the appropriate age?

the simple answer is that we cannot put a finger

The simple answer is that we cannot put a finger on the right age. Introducing your

child to the object is not an overnight process. You must wean the baby into it

gradually. Below we include some age recommendations you can use.


The following are some of the frequently asked questions regarding the use of

exersaucer and baby development.

What age can a baby go to an activity center?

The ideal age to introduce your child to an activity center is as soon as they can sit

on their own. This can be between four and six months. Don’t be in a rush to

introduce the child as the activity center can play a retrogressive role in their

development when they are not ready.

Are baby Jumpers bad for babies?

Research indicates that baby jumpers are not beneficial in any way to the

development of the child. Yes, they are fun, but their importance ends there.

Jumpers can interfere with leg and trunk control affecting the development of motor


What age can a baby go in a Jumperoo?

The ideal time for a jumperoo is between four and six months. This is the time when

the baby can hold their head up high and sit without support. In the baby exersaucer

vs. jumperoo debate, experts point at the exersaucer as a better alternative.

When can you put a baby in a high chair?

Ideally, the most appropriate age to introduce your son or daughter to the high chair

is between four and six months. Before you can add them to the kitchen décor, make

sure they are independent Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association-certified.

This means that they are safe for the little one and no injuries will encroach on


It is also nice if they are easy to clean and comfortable –you don’t want the child

fidgeting now and then as a result of discomfort.

How long can a baby use exersaucer?

The fact is that you should avoid using the exersaucer too often or too soon as it can

affect your son’s development process. Typically, the child should be strong enough

to sit on their own before you are weaning them

to sit on their own before you are weaning them into the exersaucer – mostly

between 4 and six months.

Limit their play time at the exersaucer to about 20 minutes before you can you take

them to do other activities such as playing with the ball and tummy time. And just as

you helped them into it, wean the child out of the exersaucer as soon as they are

sufficiently strong to stand on their own.
