My daughter is 12wks old today (woo-hoo!), has had good head control from birth and loves being held in standing position/bouncing on her feet.

Am thinking about purchasing a jumperoo as think she would love it, however,she hovers just below the 0.4th centile - is currently just under 4kg (just under 9lb).

Is this too small to use a jumperoo?? There is lots of info about the max weight/height but can't find any recommendations for minimum weight/height needed - does anyone have any experience/insight to help my decision?

She needs to be able to sit with minimal support really. My DD was 95th percentile and went in it from about 17/18 weeks and her feet just touched the ground on the lowest setting.

The seat does have a back to it but they need to be able to sit up otherwise they just slump over the front of the activity station bit.

I would say your DD is a little small at the moment. They are a great buy though, would def recommend.

Keep an eye on the Argos website - they have been in the sale a few times the past 3 months. ;)

If your LO has good head control I would say go for it, just stick a big flat-ish cushion underneath it. My LO had one from about 3 months, he's now 7 months and still loves it.
