81srO4OHgAL._SX450_The Fisher-Price Ipad Apptivity Seat is *not* one of our picks. Babies love bright moving things, yes, but the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends no media until 2 years old and this is just another accessory that’s helps parents *not* interact with their kids. Why even bother having kids?

If I need to grab a shower or take a rare bathroom break by myself, I’ll use the Summer Infant Island Giggles Super Activity Fun & Booster in One Seat or the Evenflo ExerSaucer Jump and Learn Jumper, Jungle Quest. My chiropractor recommended holding off on anything like this until a baby could sit or stand (respectively) on their own. She said she’s just opposed to putting a baby in any position they aren’t able to hold themselves when they’re unable to get themselves out of an uncomfortable position. But she said it’s OK to use these things for a few minutes here and there when a Mom just needs a break. Now that Babe is standing with assistance, we’re starting to use the ExerSaucer more.

Then again, there was a time that each of these items was taboo too. Perhaps a few years or a decade from now I’ll be singing a different tune.
