It seems to me that you need to seriously look for a new baby minder for your child. Jolly jumpers are not advised as they are completely unnecessary and have been known to cause accidents.She will crawl by herself but most babies only crawl by 9 or 10 months. She is certainly not ready to walk at 7 months and no one should be trying to get her to walk at such an early age.
Her main food is still her formula at her age.She is not ready to be eating the same food as adults are eating. She should have baby cereals, the Purity fruit for her age[ over 6months] and also one of the Purity chicken and vegetables or similar daily.
