Are jumperoo's/bouncers/walkers etc bad for babies? Do they

Customer Question

Hi, are jumperoo's/bouncers/walkers etc bad for babies? Do they cause hip issues? I would like to purchase a Fisher and Price Rainforest Jumperoo but my mother in law said they are very bad. Is this true? Have any studies been conducted on it? Thanks!
