I wonder if that same issue applies to a jumperoo? I would think no only because I know they use them in pediatric therapy clinics sometimes. Regardless, thanks for the reminder. They really shouldn't be used more than 20 minutes a day anyway!

Thanks for mentioning this BDD. That's old news to me, but maybe others will benefit from reading it. I use an exersaucer for my convenience. You know.... So I can cook in front of an open flame, do lots of "bendy" chores, or take a shower. Those are the things I really prefer to do while not babwearing. The idea that an exersaucer, bouncer, swing, or anything like that will enhance a child's development is just plain silly. Almost as silly as those Baby Einstein or Baby Sesame videos. Like plopping your infant in front of the TV is somehow going to help them develop

I don't think they will enhance development, no, but I do think they entertain. JMHO, though.
