Parents of young babies have a strange vocabulary and speak in tongues about exersaucers, bumbos, boppies, snugglies, Bjorns, jumperoos, and so on and on and on..... Today's post is about the Exersaucer. It's rated for babies 4 months and up so Parker is ready to get started! He has good head control and since the doctor has ordered us to get him OFF HIS BACK as much as possible, this is likely to be his new home as much as he can stand it.
I put him in it, and stuffed blankets around him to help prop him up, and waited to see what he would do, with memories of his brother 2 years ago just kind of sitting there with his head flopping over wondering what the heck was going on. Not Parker! These two boys are so different. Parker had barely been in it two seconds and he was reachng and grabbing for the toys and before I knew it had flipped the page on the book! He was checking out all the toys and managed to stay in it a whole 10 minutes before he just couldn't hold himself up anymore. He's still new at this, poor guy. With a little practice he'll be hanging out for longer stretches.
