What To Consider When Buying A Baby Bouncer

Size

Baby bouncers come in various shapes and sizes. Some take up quite a lot of floor space and others are compact and can be folded flat for storage.

If you don’t want your baby bouncer to take over your living room, opting for a smaller more compact bouncer rather than a swing chair or bigger bouncer may be a good idea.

Features

From simple bouncers which need to be manually rocked to battery operated swing chairs with music, vibration and toy bars, there are options to suit all tastes and budgets.

Cleaning

Babies can be very messy so it’s worth considering how easy it will be to keep your bouncer clean.

Is the material cover removable so you can machine wash or will you need to wipe down?

Budget

You can get a basic bouncer from @ £30 but if you’re looking for bouncers or swings with movement, special features and sounds expect to pay anything from £100-£200.

FAQ’s Baby Bouncers

When can I put my baby in a bouncer?

Most bouncers and baby swings are suitable from birth. Please check manufacturers guide.

Newborns require a recline function so baby can nap, but they should not be used for overnight sleep.

Some baby bouncers can be converted into chairs or rockers for toddlers.

What type of baby chair is best?

This is down to personal preference. There are plenty of options from bouncers to rockers or swings with music.

Most baby chairs are too bulky to fold away after each use, so it is important to find a one that you have space for and don’t mind looking at on a daily basis.

Warning: Never put your baby bouncer on an elevated surface such as a worktop or table.
