I am above average in height for a woman (I am 5’8) and I have back problems. When my children reach the age when they are learning to walk, it can be quite exhausting and painful walking hunched over, trying to assist them. Finally, with child number three, someone has come up with something to help!
The makers of the Juppy sent me one to review, and I am so glad they did! Sophia isn’t quite to the point where she is taking steps, but she does love standing up and bouncing. The Juppy makes it really easy to hold her in a position that is comfortable for me, while being fun for her.
It was really easy using the Juppy. I had my husband hold the seat of it open, while I slid my daughter down into it, much the same as putting a child in any other walker. There was enough room to put her in it easily, while not being so loose as to be dangerous. While the fit was already perfect for us, there is also a zipper and Velcro secured buckles in the back to tighten or loosen it as necessary, which gives us plenty of growing room for the future.
The cloth is sturdy but light. My Juppy is lined with soft pink cotton, but it also comes in blue or yellow. The same soft cotton is repeated on the handles, making sure that your hands will not get irritated by the strap. As we all know, once a baby gets going, they want to keep at it for quite some time! Using the Juppy means that while you might get tired, it won’t be because you have been killing your back!
Another feature that is pretty neat is that because the Juppy is simply made of cotton, it is easy to fold up and bring with you anywhere. It even comes with its own bag, making it perfect for stowing in a diaper bag or for use while traveling.
Some similar baby walking devices do not look very solid to me. The Juppy Momentum has cloth going all the way around it, not just the front and back, which makes me feel better about trusting an unsteady baby to it. Just to be thorough, I tossed it in the wash (gentle cycle, like the tag says), and it came out great! Both the stitching and coloring stayed intact.
Sophia already had a great time when we were trying this out. I know that it is something she will continue to enjoy, while she is learning to walk. I especially love that when we go traveling, it will be one toy that we will be able to take with us without any hassle.
