I received a “Juppy Baby Walker” last week and absolutely fell in love with it. What is a Juppy? It’s a unique parent assisted baby walker used to help baby learn to walk. Not only does it take the stress and strain off my back while trying to help my little one walk, it eliminates the stress and strain put on my little guys arms as I hold him up.
Having tried other parent assisted baby walkers, I am happy to say that this is my absolute favourite.
I love the slim bucket seat for my little guy to sit in. If I need to pick him up quickly (usually to save him from big sister) I can scoop him up and not worry about any extra bulk. The other walker I had for my daughter didn’t have this “seat” and was essentially just a strap around her chest with handles which pulled and left marks under her armpits and was just plain uncomfortable for her. The “Juppy” supports my little monster under his bum eliminating this stress on his body and it leaves absolutely no marks.
The straps to hold him are adjustable so both my husband and I can use it with ease. The only fault I have with the straps is that after an extended time of walking with my monster it cuts into my hands a little bit. This isn’t totally the “Juppy’s” fault. My guy is a bit young for it, so I’m supporting most of his weight, where an older child would be supporting most of his own weight. The leg holes are roomy enough for his chubby little legs and the strap under his bum is wide enough not to give him a wedgie. It comes with a small carrying case and fits perfectly in a diaper bag or purse.
The “Juppy” also helps teach young walkers proper posture. By supporting my little guy around his middle and not holding his arms above his head, I’m helping him learn to walk with his hands down for balance. It’s so simple to use, just adjust the straps to your height, place your little monster inside, zip the back and you’re off and running!
It comes in three colours, blue, black and pink and you can have it personalized for a few dollars more. After using other baby walking assist products I am pleased to say that I firmly believe this to be one of the best on the market. Safer than walkers with wheels (which I can’t use in Canada anyway), and much better designed than other parent-assisted walkers I would highly recommend this to any parent or grandparent with a little one learning to walk.
Want to know what Nannie thinks of the “Juppy”?
“As a mother and a grandmother, I’ve seen quite a few products come and go on the market for babies. This is the first time I have ever felt compelled to comment about a product. My newest grandchild received a Juppy last week and I was pleasantly surprised when I seen him in it. The bucket type holder for the baby is very comfortable for them (compared to one on the market that goes under the child’s arms). You feel very secure holding the baby and letting them try walking. The workmanship of the product is excellent. You can tell there was a lot of thought went in to the product about baby’s safety and comfort and the comfort of the adult holding the straps. To the other Nanny’s out there I would certainly recommend you looking for this for your bundle of joy.
