When DD1 was born, I was thrilled and interested to see how and when she would achieve her milestones in comparison to her brothers. She a very strong baby. She could hold her head up at days old, she rolled over within the first 2 months of life, she sat at 4 months, then things kinda stopped. At 9 months, she hadn't started crawling. She would happily sit in the center of the room and play with the toys surrounding her. I knew if I stood her on my legs, she was capable standing and pushing off, which lead me to believe there was nothing physically wrong. Why wasn't she crawling? I was very confused and a little worried. One morning I decided I was going to get to the bottom of this. I sat back on the couch and observed her behaviours. She would sit and happily play, then point to an object across the room and screech. One of her brothers would stop playing, get up and retrieve the object she was pointing at. This continued for over an hour. Every time she pointed and screeched, one of her brothers would get up and get her the toy she wanted. Why bother crawling when you had minions to do your bidding?? I had had enough! This little girl would gonna start moving. I thanked the boys for being superb big brothers, but asked that they let DD1 retrieve her own toys. Two days later, after much screaming and fussing DD1 began crawling around 9 months old.
Life carried on and now I had 3 children on the go! DD1 first birthday came and went, she was standing by herself but she still wasn't walking. 16 months came along and she was cruising on furniture or by holding our hands but still wasn't walking. Worried once again, I went to my family doctor. She did some tests on her legs and told me they were developing fine, it appears my daughter was just LAZY! I was frustrated and didn't have an idea how to encourage my DD1 to walk. When she held onto my hands, she used a DEATH grip, if only there was some way to support her while giving her the freedom to find her own balance.
That's when the Juppy arrived at my door!!!
Adjustable straps: The straps are easily adjustable and can accommodate your height whether you are 4'11" or 6'11. Simply slide the straps until they are the shortest possible length when Mom's arms are straight down. This allows Mom to stand tall, comfortable and proud rather than hunched, while still maintaining a good hold on your baby.
Padded handles: The padded handles provide a secure comfortable grip and are strategically placed to provide the best support for the baby.
Back Zipper: The zipper at the back of the Juppy allows you to easily get baby in and out of the Juppy, making it tool you will use often
Adjustment straps: The adjustment straps allow a firm, secure fit of the Juppy on your baby. Not only will this reassure Mom, but it will stabilize baby and provide them with the confidence they require to take those first steps!
Material: The Juppy is made out of 100% cotton and is strong and durable, but still soft to the touch. It can be machined washed on a gentle cycle to clean up any spills that may occur.
Personalization: I love that you can personalize your Juppy! We call DD1, Princess and have since before she was born! I knew that I had to get this nickname on her Juppy!
Carrying case: Each Juppy comes with its own satin caring case! It is small, compact and is easy to take everywhere with you!
After using the Juppy a few times, DD1 has finally learned to walk! The Juppy gave her the confidence she need to take those first steps alone. Two weeks later, she is running around the house chasing her brothers! We can't wait for spring to come and run outside. Just because DD1 is walking, doesn't mean the Juppy stays at home! I still take the Juppy with me and use it in grocery stores and malls to prevent DD1 from falling or straying too far!
Thank you Juppy for teaching my DD1 to walk and save my back!
