I just got my son the Fisher Price Laugh and Learn Jumparoo.....and he LOVES, LOVES, LOVES it!! I am concerned though because his feet dont hit the ground yet so they just dangle. I though I read somewhere that this would be bad? Does anyone else know about this??

My son, born 9/29, is a skinny minny and I'm always concerned that he doens't fit in his jumparoo correctly. I have an exersaucer and a bouncer that hangs from a doorway...both of them seem to wide for him still, even though his feet can touch and he loves to jump around. Should I still let him in there and just pad around him with blankets so he's not leaning over too much? I know he loves the toys because he's always reaching for them when he's in there.

my son goes crazy on his jumperoo! he loves it to death.. my son is a shorty too, so i used to put a book under his feet, a thin one so he would be able to touch a little easier. i think its fine, if something is wrong he would let u know!

my son didn't reach in his at first either - we put a phone book under his feet so that he could bounce...that didn't last long though, within a month he grew into it

My sons 30 inches and LOVES his. We can adjust the setting on ours but dont sweat it. It'll be fine. This time of age is CRUCIAL for them to have social play and interacting. Its great for him. Dont worry

Wowee, He must be small, or my baby is a porker, he's been in it since Dec 26th (got it for christmas) and is almost ready to be moved to the 3rd setting, I dont think it would be bad, as long as you didnt leave him in for hours, it would probably hurt his little legs

My son has the Laugh & Learn Jumperoo, too. He loves it! :) My son is about 25 inches or so & his little toes are just touching the ground on setting 1. I think as long as they are not flat footed then it is okay.

i don't know about the not touching but i know once they are flat footed or close to it you have to move it up a notch. My son is already on the 2nd and getting close to needing the 3rd. he is also already on the top slot for his walker. He is 28 1/2 to 29in tall already. He takes after daddy. lol

Hmm, well if he's happy and he doesn't stay in too long. I'm sure he's fine. Jump away little guy!

I guess he is a little shortie!! Lol....I'm only five feet so he's probably gonna be. He can touch on tippie toes only.

They don't touch! My son's been in his jumperoo since just after Christmas. I am thinking of raising his to number 2 soon. Is your son a little guy?
