Gone are the days when you used to put your baby in a baby walker to be hands-free and finish off some chores. Over time baby walkers have proven to be unsafe for children and many countries even ban its use.
Why would you want an unsafe walker to hold your baby when there are many great options like the exersaucer that not just hold your baby but provide an activity center for the little one to explore and enjoy?
Baby Einstein is a reliable name when it comes to introducing good quality products like the door jumpers, baby jumpers, and baby saucers.
With their range of highly useful exersaucers, they have made sure your baby enjoys the activities offered by a good baby saucer while indulging in a little exercise.
What is an Exersaucer?
An excersaucer is a modern, safe, and better alternative to a baby walker. It helps you do your chores while your little one enjoys playing on his/ her own.
As the name indicates, the exersaucer lets your baby do some exercise while keeping him/ her busy in various activities on a baby saucer, hence the term exercise saucer came into existence.
While your little explorer plays with multiple activities that the exersaucer offers, there are many long-term advantages that it provides in your baby’s growth and development, such as:
- Improving the cause and effect: Exersaucers are great at teaching babies the concept of cause and effect – when an action taken by your baby results in an outcome (music or movement).
- Increasing the hand-eye coordination: An exersaucer can help teach your baby the hand-eye coordination where your baby uses his/ her vision to spot a toy and tries to grasp, slide, chew, pull, or push it using his/ her hands.
- Developing basic motor skills: Your baby uses his/ her fingers, hands, and vision to explore objects, feel their texture, slide or spin the toys and play music – all these activities polish your little one’s motor skills.
- Strengthen leg and hand muscles: Standing in the exersaucer trying to balance their weight, bounce, and jump are great for the development of those tiny leg muscles. Similarly, when your baby tries to hold, pull, push, slide, or manipulate a toy or rattle, he/ she is not only exercising his/ her hand muscles but also making them strong.
Baby Jumper vs Exersaucer
For some, it may be a little hard to differentiate between a baby jumper and an exersaucer at first glance, however they have some features that the other one does not.
The main difference between a baby jumper and an exersaucer is that of the ratio of jumping and playing activities.
A baby jumper lets your baby jump more while not offering too many activities. The primary focus, as the name indicates, is on your baby’s jumping skills which work great for strengthening those tiny leg muscles.
The exersaucer, on the other hand, lets your baby bounce but does not focus on too much jumping. However, it offers a vast range of activities to indulge in.
So, while an exersaucer may not provide a lot of activities involving the leg muscles as compared to a baby jumper, it plays a vital role in your baby’s early development of motor skills.
The introduction of an exersaucer has taken baby gear like baby jumpers, door jumpers, and baby walkers to the next level.
It is a blessing for parents. It not only lets your baby bounce and exercise his/ her motor skills, but it also lets your baby enjoy a play center that has all sorts of activities.
This way your baby learns new things while you can have some quality time by yourself.
