My son would bounce up and down on my legs when he was 4 months old. We bought a jolly jumper for him because he would bounce so much I couldn't hold him for that long. He went in the jolly jumper almost every day and loved it. I think if he's ready to stand, let him stand. If he doesn't feel like standing he'll probably just sit down or go all "jelly legs". I would encourage it myself.

No. I had a doc tell me that by 5 months she expected my son to be able to hold his own weight. But always ask your doctor.

I dont think so, I think it helps make them stronger as long as its not to long. Also as long as its his doing, forcing him may harm his legs if he isnt ready to do that yet.
