  • When she starts sitting by herself with no support. That's when I started putting mine in there and she was around 6 months.

  • Now if you want! However, I would highly recommend buying a shopping cart seat cover if possible! The seat of the cart is one of the nastiest germ covered places! It ranks right up there with playground equipment! And yes I am a germaphobe and I know that babies have to be exposed to some germs....but....most carts have been found to have fecal matter on them and thats just not a "germ" I wish for my child to get 'used' to! :) Bleck! Hope this helps!

  • If she can sit up, she's good to go. Shopping cart covers are great to avoid germs and soften it up for little ones. Some also have a little pillow to support their back. I love it on mine!
