Any chairs instead of bouncers???

Does anybody have any ideas what I can use to sit babies in instead of boucers??? They are gettin a bit big for them now and Ruby tends to lean forward and tip out of hers. In the day they have their bottles in their highchair (I feed them together) but at night they have it in their bouncers as it's more laid back and comfortable. I'd like to continue to feed themtogether but obviously dh is away so wondered if there are any other sorts of chairs with a harness on the market????

Thanks for your help yes they have bumbo's and reclining highchairs just wondered if there was anything comfier on the market they could snooze on. They like to chill out in their rockers and would be nice to replace them. Have seen the Doomoo seats but I think they are quite expensive, especially when you need 2!!!

Lulu,

Hiya!

My twin friend has these her twins are 10 months & are so comfy, they go into little chairs when they are alot older (as you probably know that), she feeds them in these all the time, when I took my girls round hers they were climbing in & out & loved them too & they could not even fall out or push it forwards as they have a bar at the bottom to prevent it tipping forward & my girls are 24lb now so they are strong chairs. but expensive for two!!

We had the fishprice kick & play & were great these are the step up from them but much better.

Thanks for that Lisa, they go up to 40lbs ooh what shall I do, tthey seem like a really good idea, even when they are older it will be nice for them to have their own chair, my bouncers have been invaluble but they just aren't that practical anymore for saftey reasons, I dont know whether it's worth shelling out now help!!!!

Lulu, we have that chair. Its been great but now she can climb out of it! :rolleyes: I only put her in it if she's on the verge of sleep and I'm not going to be out of the room.

Edited to say she's been able to climb out of it for about a month, so I wouldn't waste your money for the amount of use you are likely to get out of it. Can I suggest supergluing their bums to the seat?

I suppose i'm just wishful thinking that they are going to want to sit still!!! It's just when you have twins and on your own it's handy to have something to give last bottle in that's nice and comfy. Or will it not be long till they give their bottles themselves????

Mrs. J, what a little escaper you have! tighten the straps more!!

Lulu-mine held their bottles by the age of 7 months & ever since! so much easier with 2 babies, are you teaching them to hold them own?

yes Ruby can do it usually pokes herself in the eye, she just needs to learn to tip it up more, if I dont hold it she tends to get distracted and not drink it!!! Seb actually held his today for the first time again needs to work out how to tip up!!! Once they can do this where do you give them thir bottle on the sofa????

well done your 2!

I always fed in bouncers or girls on floor leaning on 2 huge v-shaped pillows (debenhams are the best ones to buy I think) & a cushion underneath, they still have their milk on the floor (rug) or both lying on me! great fun! always on my bed in the morning when we all snuggle up with a biscuit!! 8o

you might find it easier to use v-shaped pillows or cushions on the sofa & you in between, are they siting unaided now?

Ruby is managing about 20 mins, but as she can roll about I think she thinks that why sit still when I can move here and touch that, move there and steal my brothers dummy, move here and get stuck under the table etc etc. so she tends to sit then put herself on her front. Seb doesn't sit up yet, gets frustrated and generally just lies there whilst Ruby steals his dummy!!! lol

Lulu,

Must be very hard without DH, you need a big hug & pat yourself on your back for being on your own with twins. well done! my two love being on the sofa (leather also) & haven't yet managed to climb on them, but they climb on our bed with no trouble but are much older than yours. I love the mornings when we snuggle up just us 3.

T used to snooze on his lamb fleece and still crashes out on the squashy sofa at grandma and grandpa's. However, the latter has to be supervised as he can roll in his sleep and it's a long wa down.
