What to Look for in Baby Bouncers
Although baby bouncers come in a variety of styles and features, it's important that safety is the number one factor taken into consideration. Opt for one with a roomy seat with full-body support. Your baby will likely sit in the bouncer daily, so it will need to be durable enough to withstand several months of use. Additional factors to look out for when buying baby bouncers include:
- Portability: If you want to move the baby bouncer from room to room, you'll need one that is easy to carry or features a folding design for easy transport and storage.
- Adjustability: Multiple seating positions so baby can sway side-to-side or swing front-to-back.
- Comfort: Some bouncers include removable head support or rubber feet for extra stability.
- Safety Features: Safety harness to keep your child secure.
Baby Bouncers vs. Swings vs. Rockers
Most baby bouncers have the same basic design, but what sets them apart are their added bells and whistles. These typically include vibrating functions, toy bars, and music or soothing sounds. Here are a few differences you may notice:
Features soothing vibrations and toys that help strengthen motor skills.
Multi-directional swing with different speeds for varied pace.
Rocks your baby to sleep with gentle motions that mimic the way one would rock a baby in their arms.
When Can Babies Use Bouncers?
The first thing to note is that every baby is different. This means that the age at which one child might make the transition does not mean that it's the right time for another. However, most babies enjoy it when they're between three and six months old. Bouncers and swings are best for newborns and babies that can sit up on their own. During your baby's first year of life, their coordination, muscle tone, vision, and intellect are all increasing at a rapid rate. Bouncers allow pre-walking babies to burn off extra energy and enjoy some freedom of movement. Once they reach about 9 months old, they will outgrow their bouncers.
