If you have been told to get a trampoline for your dc, I have a suggestion. I looked into various trampolines but was not happy with the size (some were too small to be fun, some were WAY too big to fit comfortably in a playroom), or the fact that it needed to stay "big" if that makes sense (inflated). We have a relatively small home and it just takes up a lot of room. The other problem is that dd loves to jump off of something (like the couch) onto a tramp and couldn't do it with the ones with high sides (whiich was recommended for us, dd is 3).<br><br>
So, in desperation I remembered that we have an inflatable "aero bed" for when we have guests. It is the perfect solution - very, very bouncy, inflates in 60 seconds and deflates in 15, I feel dd is very safe because she is close to the floor, she can jump off of things onto it, etc. Plus, if you need an extra bed, it serves two purposes.<br><br>
They are not cheap but I would be hesitant to buy a cheap trampoline anyway, safety issues and all.<br><br>
I think the website is <a href="http://www.thinkaero.com" target="_blank">www.thinkaero.com</a> if you're interested.

Do you think it will hold up to the jumping? We have terrible luck with even expensive inflatable mattresses starting to leak after rough handeling.<br><br>
Please keep us up to date on the how the mattress holds up <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Thanks!

I'm one of those moms that lets kids jump on the bed <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!"> It makes a great sensory activity for dd! Although I need to keep a camera handy for those moments when we have guests and I ask her oh so politely to go jump on the bed when she is getting too crashy.

my friend's dd has autism & sensory issues. they are lucky enough to have a HUGE trampoline in their backyard, hannah has BLOSSOMED since they got it. she tries so hard to do what her sibling do & she does great.<br><br>
(OT but just vouching for jumping being great for kids!)
