Right DD is 4 months old & extremly frustrated, she is very very forward for her age & she spends the day whinging & moaning & get very very cross because all she wants to do is sit up, i sit her on my knee for as long as poss but i have chores to be done.

She is not happy with just sitting in a bouncy chair she wants to be sitting straight.

I am now finding this extremly stressful as i can see her frustration & really have no idea of what to do.

All i can think of is one of those walk around sit things where you sit them in but can i put her in that at 4 months>? if not what else can i use?

Please recommend me some products, it really would help ease our situation.

Thank you.

A Bumbo chair? They are about 25 quid, and lots of my friends had them for their babies, and said they were fab.

Thanks for that never thought of them yes she has total neck control, she also rolls all across the floor & pushes herself across the room by her heals, she is just totally frustrated & its stressing her out & also me now.

You think i shoudl order it? maybe you are right? do mothercare do them? thats where i was going to go but i bet there prices are bigger?

intergalacticwalrus Mon 22-May-06 19:35:23

Mothercare do do them, but I think they are more expensive. Kiddicare are really good, and will deliver it quickly and for free, providing you don't live somewhere bizarre like the Outer Hebrides. I have ordered lots of stuff from them, and they are cheap and excellent IMHO.

I lie. Have just looked on MC website, and they are the same price, 27.99. Get thee to Mothercare tomorrow, lady!

I have used kiddicare i brought a buggy board & footmuff from them about 4 months ago & i agree there products are fab.

I will have to go to mothercare as i could do with it like tomorrow will let you know how she gets on, bless her, may even add a proud picci of her on here tomorrow in her new seat, thanks again.

Bad mother here - just to throw in an alternative I put my DD in a baby walker at 16 weeks - absolute heaven she whizzed around the kitchen with her equally frustrated best friend - my HV reckoned it saved my sanity and on the plus side tired her out more so her afternoon naps were longer. She was much happier in general when she started walking and has always been independent and wanted to go and do what she wanted takes after her mother.
