I have the latest model of this bouncer (Rainforest Friends Comfort CurveTM Bouncer) and I absolutely love it. I was lucky enough to be given it to me for my newborn from FisherPrice and we love it.
when my little one was first born she loves sleeping in it, it was comfortable, the vibrations helped a lot and the material is so soft and cosy.
Now that she's a little older she loves rocking away in it and holding the toys and having a chew which is amazing because she's teething right now.
its super light to carry around the house and also easy to clean when you get baby accidents.
This is a must have for all babies from newborn.
Another little beauty I borrowed from my sister when having my little girl. Her twin girls loved it and now so does my bub, although she's getting too big for it now she's almost one. There are straps that go around the waist, but not the shoulders, so not as secure as I'd like, but It has a gentle vibration setting that sooths baby and so me this helped but her to sleep sometimes. She loved the fact she could kick her legs on the two hanging toys to get the music to play and the arch to light up. It excited her every time! Easy to bounce gently and my bub had even fallen alseep in it with the music playing and toys swinging away. :) A great, fun little seat to keep baby entertained for a while.
After using a bouncer with our daughter, the first item on our list of things to buy for our son was a bouncer.
The vibrations are great, and seem to help soothe our boy, and it is easy to bounce.
It's nice and light, and easy to take in the car with us when we go out.
The removable toy bar is great, and our son loves swiping at the toys. Unlike our other bouncer (FP Bobblin' Band Bouncer), he cannot activate the music himself.
The cover is very easy to remove, and easy to clean, as it's machine washable.
I have used our Fisher-Price bouncer for 2 children so far, and it is still in very good shape! Our's is not exactly like this Rainforest one but it's the closest to it. The bar across the top is easily removed to get the baby in and out of the bouncer, and the dangling toys come in handy as bub gets more aware of his/her surroundings.
Our bouncer was a lifesaver for us, particularly with our first child who could easily be bounced to sleep in it. I love how you can sit on the couch and bounce bub to sleep at night and still manage to watch a TV show here and there. It's also very easy to wipe the fabric clean (or wash in the machine), or just as easy to place a small towel or flat cloth nappy underneath the baby to catch any spills.
Our Fisher-Price bouncer is quite simple, but it certainly does the job and will do for any of our future children also. If anyone brings a baby over to our house it's the first thing I grab out of the wardrobe!
