A baby jumper is a baby product that is a suspended seat to allow a baby’s movement or stability. The jumper can be suspended from the top of the door frame with a clamp or just a seat by itself.The seat is suspended by strong springs so that when the baby’s toes push from the floor, a jumping motion is then created.
Baby jumpers have improved a great deal over their forms in the past and today producers of some of the more popular brands and models have made them more safe, practical and versatile.
Function Of The Baby Jumper
Original Aim – Entertainment
The purpose of the baby jumper when it was first invented was essentially to provide your baby with a form of entertainment and increase the strength of their legs, especially as they move towards their walking years.
Developmental curved legs was a concern for some people in the past, but this opinion has long been shown to be unfounded when a responsible adult fits and adjusts the jumper correctly and maintains it at the correct heights.
Ensure Safety Of Baby
Strangely enough, it turned out that one of the most common reasons for a parent to buy a baby jumper for their little one was to be able to place their baby in a safe place. The child could not escape from whilst keeping them in sight as the parent was able to get on with some of the daily chores that needed to be done.
Improve Motor Skills
Babies love to touch and feel everything. The jumper is designed to allow a child the opportunity to improve their motor skills safely. Unlike in the past, where the jumper just contained the core jumper ability, today’s activity jumpers also allow you to add various items to amuse and entertain your little one.
Jumpers that hang from the door opening also move in a sideways direction and so allow your child to develop their leg control and muscles.
Today’s jumpers will often create the bounce action with the use of a spring-based mechanism. The spring mechanism is perhaps the safest and most appropriate device for the job. Likewise, in the unlikely event that it or the securing fastenings should fail, the jumper that you choose should have a backup safety cord to prevent your baby from falling to the ground.
Some jumpers allow you to not only fit the jumper between your doorways but often suspend it from other places in your home. If this is your preference, then the jumper attachment parts should allow you to do this in line with the manufacturer’s safety intentions.
Parents are buying jumpers more and more to serve two primary purposes, as a fun activity product for their toddler and for the ability to safely put their child while the parent finishes other things around the house.
