When I was in the market for a bouncer I was dismayed at how ugly and tacky most bouncers could be.
I loved the look of the Baby Bjorn. At least one that I wouldn't mind seeing in my linving room day in day out...
Bub instantly loved it. By kicking his little legs he would make it bounce gently. He looked very comfortable in it and could lay in it happily for long period of times.
I am now expecting bub #2 and can't wait to use it again.
The BabyBjorn bouncer is definitely worth the money BUT because it is a really high quality product I suggest you freely buy a second-hand bouncer. My BabyBjorn Bouncer is over 10 years old and has “serviced :)” over 5 kids and still looks amazing and works perfectly.
OH and btw... not every kid loves the bouncer, my older son rejected it and never wanted to be put into it so please test it out or gradually teach your kid to love it.
Whilst this is the only bouncer I have personally used, I am a massive fan of the Balance Babysitter and am so grateful this is the bouncer we chose. We live in a single fronted terrace house so accomodating a baby and all her new belongings has been a challenge for us since having our daughter 12 months ago.
This seat packs up to lie flat whereby we can store it under or behind just about anything. Often my husband and I had to ask each other where we last put it because it's virtually invisable when packed up!
As far as use of the bouncer is concerned I have my daughter lounge in it to drink her milk and my three year old neice searching for it everytime she comes over so she can watch TV and her newborn brother also sits in there and loves it.
Having said that I'm a little of a germ freak and at any speck or spot of dirt, food, spew, the cover comes off and straight into the washing machine. It washes especially well. After the frequency I have washed this cover, I expected some fading or pilling or for it to get out of shape but none of those have occured.
Everyone loves the Baby Bjorn!!!
This bouncer is expensive, but by far one of the best purchases we made for baby.
A friend gave us one of those automatic music playing bouncers as a baby shower gift and i used that until another friend's 7 yr old sat on it and broke it!
So i used thatas an excuse to purchase the bjorn after a reccommendation from a friend.
Since buying it, we haven't looked back, our son loved it. He used to fal asleep in it all the time.
I love that it is machine washable as it comes up really clean and is easy to remove the cover.
The multiple sitting positions is great as baby grows. Our son ended up bouncing himself with his feet as he got bigger, so it saved me some time!
I would reccommend this product to anyone and will definitely get more us out of it with next baby.
We love our babybjorn babysitter, our little girl (5 months) is in it daily. We bought this bouncer as it has an ergonomic design which moulds around baby's body and head, offering great support. Also, when baby kicks her legs, the bouncer rocks which seems to keep her happy and soothed.
Things we love:
* Suitable from newborn to 10+ kg
* Has 3 positions: play (most upright), rest and sleep (lowest position). My baby happily goes for naps in the babysitter
* Can be folded for easy transport. I take it in my car when visiting friends without kids so I can have some hands-free time.
* The fabric cover is easily removable and washable. It is also reversible, offering me 2 design/colour options (we have black/silver).
The bouncer is pretty expensive but I feel it's worth the price. The only thing I don't like is that there's no toy bar included for baby to play with. This can be purchased separately but is again pretty expensive.
Overall, highly recommended!
