This is a good article on why NOT to use bouncers and jumpers with your babies.

My 10-month-old daughter Abby has some developmental delays.

She is a sweet and happy baby who loves to babble (“mamama”… be still my heart!), pick up small toys and explore them slowly, play peek-a-boo, pick up her tiny foods with two fingers, point, laugh, and clap.

Things she cannot do? Crawl with her belly off the floor. Pull up to stand, or really put much weight on her legs at all. Shift from sitting to crawling to sitting again.
