Jumperoo Question -- lol very stupid question I might add......

Does anyone else have trouble putting their 4-month old in the jumperoo? He always seems to keep his legs straight and so I have to wait for my husbands help all the time. Even when I get one leg through one hole, his other leg just doesn't go in the other one. LOL! I know I'm a moron!! =)

  • Haha my son does that. I have to lower him into it juuust right and then kinda maneuver his legs into the holes. Then sometimes his knees get stuck and I have to push them down! It can be frustrating lol.

  • oh yeah, it's like they need a manual or something! I put one hand under their butt and kind of hold their legs apart sometimes makes it a little easier, or if you pull th fabric up and put their feet through and then loer them into it helps a bit too.

  • Just like the previous person said. If you pull the crotch of the fabric up it's easier to guide the legs in. I used to always do that. It's like threading a needle!

  • LOL @ "threading a needle". So true!

  • I had my babies face away from me while holding them with one arm and able to guide their feet through with my free arm. Maybe try that.
