  • probably time to invest in a bounce/walker.

  • Yeah it can tip over. I found my daughter hanging over the edge at 3 or 4 months. If you are feeding her in it and sitting with her you are ok. I wouldn't leave her unsupervised.

  • I suppose it could tip over. Well, you should always keep an eye on LO when shes in it anyway. Perhaps now that shes sitting up, consider getting her a saucer thing, walker or jumper.

  • You're not supposed to use them anymore after they can sit up unassisted. I think that's the only warning they give on them. Otherwise, it's up to your own judgement. If you think she might hurt herself, you probably shouldn't use it anymore.

  • My daughter did tip hers (or maybe it didn't tip, but she more or less fell out of it while still strapped to it...) I think it was around 10 months? I was in the shower, and she was right there with me. It was definitely after she was crawling/pulling up, etc very well.

  • If she can sit up, she is too big for it. I have to take issue with the suggestion of a walker. The US is the only industrialized country that has not banned them. They can be extremely dangerous and should not be used.
