3 month old always wants to stand!

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!

Once they can support their head to a degree you can put them in a stand up bouncy. When my daughter was a wee one we rolled towels up and put them as neck support

My son started jumping in the Jumper when he was 3 months. He used to go so fast I thought he would get shaken baby syndrom. But he is fine and I think it helped him walk earlier because his legs were so strong.

You can definitely give it a try and see how he does with the head support. My son was the same way - it seemed like he always wanted to stand right from the get go. LOL. Just make sure to pack around him in the seat really well with blankets or towels, or something to keep his body upright so he doesn't flop into the seat. He will most likely have a bit of room around him.

My DD is the same way, she loves standing up and she is 3 months old too, I got her a jumperoo when she was about 2 1/2 months old and she loves it! The one I got is The Fisher Price Precious Planet jumperoo and it has and head support thing on the back so their head doesnt flop back or anything!
