How long do you let your baby play in the jumperoo?

My daughter could play in there for hours if i'd let her. I feel bad taking her out when she is having so much fun. I just don't know how long I should let her play or if it even matters. She even does this wiggle giggle thing when we walk by it, thinking she et to

  • I've read that you should limit their time in those because it can slow them down from working on their milestones like pulling up, standing, etc. I usually let my daughter play in hers for 10-15 minutes tops, usually long enough to unload the dishwasher or fold the laundry or something.

  • Yeah my son loves to stay in till he's fussy... my daughter was the same way.

  • I left my daughter in hers until she got fussy and the same went for the exersaucer. I even leave her in her play yard until she gets fussy and then we move onto something else.

  • I let her stay in until she is tired of it (usually around 20-30 minutes.)

  • i HEARD to limit it to an hour a day because it can make babies bow legged. but i dont think it really affects a baby all that much
