I remember the extra sore back as I leaned over to hold onto middle munchkins hands to help him toddle along. If only i had had the Juppy!! Any parent of a learning to walk baby will want and need this!!
What is the Juppy??... well it is a little harness(similar to a jumper harness, it has strong Velcro up the back to secure your child in) that your child goes in when in the learning to walk stage. It has handle/straps that the parent holds onto to help the child to walk. It eliminates the need to bend over to hold your child's hands!! You simply place child in the harness and hold onto the straps and the child is free to learn to walk. It also helps the child with their balance as when they are walking their hands are free to move and be in a more realistic stance then in traditional learning to walk when the child's hands and arms are raised to hold onto their parents.
The Juppy is made from 100 percent cotton and is small enough to fit in a large purse or in your diaper bag! It is also machine washable and comes in yellow with blue or pink trim, and Black with yellow trim. It is one size fits all babies and the straps are adjustable to parents comfort level! You are even able to customize your Juppy with an embroidered word...I choose Lovebug :) It also comes with it's own matching carrying bag! Nice touch!
Based on my previous to babies employment of being a Special Needs assistant working with preschool children with vast special needs; I can honestly say that this product would be very beneficial for those children with mobility issues so they can get the feel of walking or at least being on their feet. Many children with mobility issues end up in more pain and with more problems from not getting the blood flowing in their limbs, this product would be a new fun way for them to get some movement!
As you can tell from my first statement I would recommend this product to any parent but especially to mothers expecting another baby. This product would also be great for Parents with back issues as it prevents the need of bending over to "walk" your child. As well as for Parents and Caregivers of Special needs children!
