Beware 'container baby' syndrome: Durham expert says babies need tummy time, free movement
Check out any baby registry and you're likely to see a swing, Bumbo seat, vibrating chair, Jolly Jumper or exersaucer somewhere on the list. They're popular for a reason — it's somewhere parents can put their baby down safely for a few minutes so they can grab a shower, make dinner or take care of an older child. But experts say relying too much on these devices can lead to "container babies" who don't get enough time for movement and exploration.
