Since Drew was a newborn that boy has needed to jump. Every time he was held he would stand on your lap and jump and he lived in the jumperoo. I am not sure what sensory input it gives him but I have realized he really does need to jump and so my couch has now become a trampoline for him. Does he fall off and get hurt? Well of course he does because one is not suppose to jump on the couch. So when he gets hurt we hold him for a quick second and remind him that he is not suppose to be jumping on it. He will stay off of it until his tears are dry and then he is back on. We have been lucky that so far no stitches have been needed for him but I am sure I have just jinxed myself.
I am so excited to see his face on Christmas morning when Santa brings him a 15ft outdoor trampoline. Do I think it will put an end to his couch jumping days? Probably not, but hopefully it burns lots of little boy energy.
