I have a 3 month old little girl. She holds her head up really good and loves to stand and look around. Should I get her a exersaucer for her and/or a bumbo seat?



How old were your kids before you started them on a sippy cup?

The big thing with sippy cups is you don't put formula in them. So then they like it cuz they get the good stuff in it like real milk and juice water ect.

i started my son on a sippy cup at about 6 months and he is now 8.5 and does awesome with it ever since the first day he had it and my son also has an exersaucer he has had it since around easter so i think my son was 5 months or so and he loves it and i wanted to get a bumbo seat but i couldnt convince my husband to get one since they are about 40 dollars and i thought that was crazy just for a piece of plasitc but i really wanted one but you dont really need it its a wanted un-nesseity (sp) oh and i would say not to get her on a sippy cup just yet wait until she has atleast gone threw all the nipple stages for bottles my son went threw the nipple stages fast and then regected the bottle so we had to put him on a sippy but i was wanting to start him early anyways but i would start her on a sippy at the latest like a year

You can go ahead with the sippy, but I'd get the kind with the soft nipples. ;)

Most of the kids I've cared for haven't really used an exersaucer till about 4-5 months, but it can never hurt to try. I haven't used the chairs.

My lil guy will be 4 months this friday and has been using his exersaucer and bumbo for about the past 3-4 weeks. He loves them. I am anxious to start the jumperoo but it will probably be a few months before he starts that. As far as the sippy cup I would say about 5 or 6 months is good, thats when I started my lil girl, she is now 3 years old. So its been a while haha, that'll be the age I start my son though, Good luck!

My daughter is 4 1/2 months and she has been in her exersaucers and bumbo seat for almost a month. She loves them. She is starting to figure out all the toys and the different buttons to push to make noise and she love it.

My daughter is 10 months old and still not a big fan of the sippy cup. I offer it to her at least a few times a week, but try not to push it. I figure she'll let me know when she's ready.
