  • Exersaucers are great because they can bounce and there are usually toys around the outside they can play with. Or those Johnny Jumpers that you hang in a doorway might be fun for him, too. Good luck!

  • At three months, I would suggest a bouncer seat or wear him in a wrap. He is too little for the other things mentioned.

  • He has out grew his bouncy seat length wise, he is 24 inches long. I dont like wraps. Im getting a jumperoo from a very trusted friend just waiting for it.

  • His neck shouldn't be strong enough for that yet. And I was 24 inches at birth. He should be able to fit, if he doesn't sit up.

  • The jumperoo will be great when he's a bit older. Have you tired a swing?

  • Hailey used her walked at 3-4months old... But she was prolly longer than he is. Put a big blanket on the floor in the play room with alot of toys all around him...Let him try and move.

  • I would put him on the floor and give him the freedom to move. My daughter was like that and we did let her play on the floor a lot..she was crawling at 4 months and walking at 9 1/2 months old. Some kids are like that

  • I don't really think length matters that much but neck control does. Our son came out practically holding his head up so he's been in his exersaurcer and bumbo since he was 3 months old... use your best judgement and if you feel he is okay in the exersaurcer, go for it =) I know when my son gets bored he really enjoys going for a walk in his stroller, too.
