Bouncer aka jolly jumper
Deborah really enjoyed her bouncing, and the best time we appreciated the bouncer was when we had our tea aka dinner. She would happily bounce away while we ate.
After Andrew died, we hung the bouncer on a rope from the tree. We let Gabrielle swing on it. While the kids were playing, I cried buckets. Andrew would never have a chance to use this bouncer.
Some people are worried about using the bouncer. The possible downsides that could come from too much use: potential damage to a baby's still developing spine, problems with hip and calf muscle development, and general accidents. In the same breath, she also admitted that such damage would come from the baby being left unsupervised, and bouncing around for long and frequent periods.
