chair with 5 point harness for 7 months plus

Hi Guys, I've currently got a lovely bouncer/chair for my DD who is 7 months old. Unfortunately this has only got a 3 point harness and it states its not suitable when baby can sit unaided. My DD keeps trying to escape from the chair and I was looking for something to sit her in whilst we are in the living room and I need to pop to toilet or kitchen etc.
She's now an expert roller and is touching everything she knows she's not supposed to the minute I'm not looking at her.
She hates her bumbo seat and arches her back nearly falling out of it.
I don't want to keep bringing her highchair into the living room and I don't want her to sit in her pushchair in the living room as there's not enough room.
Can anyone suggest a sturdy bouncer/chair with 5 point harness that would be suitable for the living room floor? I'm on a budget and don't want to spend more than £50, Any suggestions would be appreciated!!
Thanks x

I always put DD in her high chair wearing her walking rein harness. The clips that hold the reins clipped on to the rings for the chair waist belt.

No way would she stay in a 3 pt harmed once she could stand.

I always clipped her into shopping trolleys too.
She climbed out on to the conveyer the time I forgotblush

Thanks startail.
Fortunately her highchair has a 5 point harness but she doesn't like staying in it too long as she seems to slip down the seat a little. Its fine when we're in the kitchen or dining room together but not in the living room. She is generally on the floor in the living room but now she is moving she is into everything. Today when I was in the toilet I could hear the fire utensil jangling and rushed in to find her trying to pull the brush from the rack, her hands were black with coal dust!
What I could do with is a bouncer that she is able to stay in for a bit longer as she is a fidget bum and sometimes throws herself forward in her chair or pushes off the bottom bar with her feet and arches her back and I'm worried she'll tip herself and the chair forward.
You little in is a cheeky monkey climbing onto conveyor belt, bet the checkout person had a shock lol smile

you might be better with a playpen?

A door bouncer?

Thanks guys, didn't really want a door bouncer as she wouldn't really be in the room with us due to the positining of the door. Have considered a playpen but my hubby thinks its a bit like a baby prison (lol) and wasnt keen on having something big like that in the room.
I've been googling for hours and have seen two by Bright Starts, called Rock in the Park Rocker and Savannah Dream Rocker. They say suitable up to 40lbs (not sure what daughter weighs now) and look ok. Can't find many reviews on them though. x x

it IS a baby prison! that's the whole point grin

it's not like you'd leave her in it all day. I had one for DS1, don't think I ever used it for DS2 or DS3 though as they didn't like it.
but it was great with DS1 as he was into everything and it gave me a chance to have a shower etc knowing he was safe in there. he was quite happy playing with toys and stuff in it

tis true that they're fairly big and ugly though

Guessing no room for a jumperoo?

I suppose your right about it being a prison!!! We may have to consider it but the living room is awkward size and shape so nowhere to put it other than behind the sette which she wouldn't be too happy with lol.

I was hoping for a chair as I sometimes feed her her breakfast in it rather than sitting her in the highchair (lazy I know) but we'll see x x

Hi AvanaNap, no room for a jumparoo, they seem to take up quite a bit of space although they look cool!!
