Anyone know a non-plastic, non-MIC alternative...

to an ExerSaucer? Elly loves to stand and holds her body very stiffly anyhow (sometimes it is even hard to get her to bend at the waist to put her in her car seat), so I would love to have something she could hang out in. But I hate to buy something plastic that I know she would put in her mouth. Does anyone know something I could use instead?

Thanks!

You know, most things I can say I've heard of somewhere or seen it, so I know it's out there, but I have never seen or heard of anything like that that is not plastic. Even the walkers they had in the 50's had plastic trays.

Hmm the world?

My children enjoyed pulling up on sofas, grandmas' cofee table, chairs, tv trays. No need for yet another toy to clutter my house.

I don't know. My son has an exersaucer and loves it. I guess I never really thought of it being MIC, because it's a few years old (was my cousin's for her son and he's like 5 now). He's starting to use the rest of the house as a playground too but I the exersaucer as a place for him to chill while I take my shower. Never really thought of it as dangerous.

Elly is only 3 months old, so shes not pulling herself up yet. But she'd much rather be upright so I'd like something she could stand in.

We had an exersaucer for my first DD, and we'll probably end up with one for Elly, too. I don't think they are necessarily dangerous. We just try to avoid MIC stuff (don't always manage it, though ), and I was wondering if there was something out there I hadn't thought of.


Thanks for the responses!
