3 month old always wants to stand! *piog*

All my son wants to do is stand up. I lay him down and he gets pissed - I sit him up and he gets pissed - I stand him up and he starts laughing and smiling and having a great time! The only problem is, my arms get tired after like 10 minutes and I have to put him down or pass him off to somevody else - this kid gets passed around like a peace pipe! Haha! But anyways, is it too early for me to put him in one of those stand up bouncy things? He's really good at holding his head up, but he does get kinda wobbly sometimes. Any suggestions? Thanks a bunch in advance!

My son loved to stand too when he was an infant.  I actually used to let him walk around the house while I followed behind him holding his hands.  It's hell on the back but he loved it.  (He didn't like the exersaucers or walkers though)

Hell no!!!  Put him in an exersaucer or a jumperoo and let him go to town!  Why would you think he is too young?

My daughter was/is tiny. We put her in an activity center at 3 months and put a blanket behind her so she didn't "flop" in the seat. If you are up to it (like the 1st poster said) you can get "walking wings". They are pretty cheap. I wish I would have had one. It will also help you get some practice chasing the LO around, lol;)

 When my dd was a baby our saucer said don't put them in it until 4 months but she was very strong like your baby and I put her in it at 3-1/2 months with lots of blankets padding her.

What about a front carrier?  He gets to check out his new world and you get to be hands free.

Sounds exactly like my son!!! And guess what, he started walking at 9 months! We got this toy below to save us from having stand him all the time and he LOVED it, in no time he was flying in it! lol. It's like $80 but it was worth every single penny! The chair comes off too so you can use it still when he is older. You can get it at Target and Babies R Us
