I just can`t tell you how excited we are to be expecting our 2nd baby! Of course just as excited as us is Sophia who wants a baby brother AND sister. Hold on, we only want ONE at a time here! Twins are cute, but I think I`d go crazy and I really would be out of a job with the lack of babysitters up for that task! Anyhow, we`re still unsure if we`re having a boy or girl yet, but I`m getting prepared early as I said previously. One step to take in that direction is with the Juppy Baby Walker. Not to mention one of you lucky people get to win one as well which is open to both the US & CANADA!
The Juppy "Momentum" is a solution to aÂ previouslyÂ recognized but unsolved challenge for parents of babies beginning to walk. Babies strong enough to Â begin walking but not strong enough to walk alone. The Juppy builds confidence in your baby and teaches balance while you maintain your Â natural posture, eliminating the grueling task of hunching over while teaching your baby to walk. The Juppy has easily adjustable straps that accommodate your height whether you are 4`11" or 6`11". The Juppy comes standard with soft hand grips that are strategically placed to provide optimum benefit for your hands; a color matched state of the art zipper is located at the rear of The Juppy for the purpose of safety, easy access and exit. You will find two Velcro straps that overlap the back zipper which again shows our commitment to providing you the safest and most practical baby walker on the market.With Sophia I didn`t have any of these cool gadgets. She just had to basically figure it out on her own and the old fashioned hold mommy`s finger and that was a wrap. So when Juppy allowed me to check out this walker I was super thrilled! Now like I said, I know we have a ways to go before baby Â Drewes gets here, but we like to be ahead of the game and prepared since you never know what`s ahead of you. So since Sophia is 5 and obviously too big for this and well the baby hasn`t quite made it here yet, baby Cabbage Patch was the experimenter for the purpose of this review. Of course she`s not quite the same as a real baby, but since Sophia is practicing being a big sister with her, why not? Now of course it was a bit easier to toss the baby in the Juppy Baby Walker than it would be a regular baby, but with a real baby you would place the baby on your lap and slip them into the walker, sort of like putting on some pants. The walker does have a zipper andÂ VelcroÂ straps which do need to be undone to put the baby in, so once the baby is in of course you would zip this back up and put the straps back in place. After that, you can start allowing your baby to walk!
What I like about this particular walker is you`re still helping your child learn to walk, but without the back aches of being hunched over. Also, the handles on the Juppy are very strong, but they also have soft grips for the parent to hold on to while walking the child. Sure, you will still feel your childs weight, but the ropes won`t dig into your skin and cut off your circulation. If they still do even with this soft padding then you probably shouldn`t be putting your child in this product.
The Juppy walker comes in a one size fits all, easy to clean (machine or hand washable - your choice!) and is the only baby walker that can fit inside of a purse! Yes, they include a nice little pouch you can fold your walker back up after each use to either put away without taking up a lot of space or put it in your purse for on the go. This is awesome especially for people who have a small house like us. We don`t have much storage room so something that can easily go in a drawer, in a bag, under the bed, etc when we`re done is always a winner!
Needless to say I love this walker and can`t wait for the baby to really try it out. Although baby Cabbage Patch was a good sport, I think it would work better for a bit older baby and one that`s more lively. Of course this brings me to my next point: When your baby outgrows the walker, your child can use it for their own baby dolls to play mommy and daddy with. So you don`t have to just toss it out! Would I recommend this product? Definitely! It`s cute, no more back pain, decently priced, compact AND machine washable. You definitely have my attention and on my must have baby list!
