At least three months
Experts say that no baby under three months of age should use a jumper, but that does not mean that every baby over three months should use one. Usually you can start when your baby is somewhere between three to six months old, but the most important thing to keep track of is when your baby’s neck is strong enough so it can keep their head upright without assistance. Go for short sessions in the jumper in beginning and work up to no more than 20 to 30 minutes per day, preferably split over multiple sessions as spending too much time per session in the jumper is not good.
