My little peanut just turned 3 months. Up until now I had her fully reclined during the day in a little rocker seat. Obviously, she has plenty of tummy time and cuddles, so she's not always laying down. Should i start propping her up in this seat now, or do i wait until she's 4-5 months?..What do you put your little guys and gals in during the day in between naps etc?

what do you sit your 3 month old in during the day?

My DD is 3 months as well. I alternate between the recliner, play mate, bumbo & periods of standing. She has been able to support her head from an early age & stand from about week two. Depending on the strength of your LO there is no harm in trying different things for short periods of time building up gradually.

Ds has been in his mama and papa snug since that age. (Not all the time but when he wanted to sit up)
He seven mths now and we still use it outside or on hard surfaces that he would hurt himself when he topples over

DS loved his jumperoo from 4 months. He jumps non stop and loves the toys on it. It's the fisher price jumperoo with the rainforest animals.

I don't think babies backs should be placed into seating position until 6m+
For now its best to be on more flat surfaces, like under a play gym on the floor. Or the bouncer/ rocker is good as it doesn't sit the back up, it's a flat tilt not bending the back.
I was even told by the nurse not to sit in the high chair seat until 5/6m+
Oh don't forget lots of cuddles, the sling will be more comfortable soon too if you have one!

I agree with singa. I think when DS was that age he was mainly on the floor on his play mat/gym or in his bouncy seat. We were out and about a lot at that age too so he spent a lot of time in the pram ( facing me ).

My little girl is 14weeks and she rotates through out the day from her Lamb Swing (she loves to nap in during the day), bassinet, tummy time and rolls on play mat and a little 5min jump in the jumperoo (newly introduced). She also has lots of cuddles and loves to stand... she is sooooo energetic!

My 4 month old uses her bouncer when I need her to 'sit'. Eg. When I need to use the toilet or unload the dishwasher. She is always with me.
