Do baby bouncers cause hip dysplasia?
Why all the fuss? The fabric seat used in these systems puts your child’s hips in a position that might make them more susceptible to hip dysplasia/dislocation later in life.

Your baby’s growth won’t be impeded as long as you are utilising it appropriately. Allow your infant to spend as much time on the floor as you can at the same time. It will allow for a more natural growth of the muscles as they would grow without the bouncy seat, and it is just as safe.
How many hours a day can baby be in bouncer?
We adhere to the World Health Organization’s (WHO) recommendation that young children shouldn’t sit in one place for more than an hour.

Only infants between the ages of 6 and 18 months should use door bouncers.
