These Stylish Baby Bouncers Will Soothe Your Newborn
While bouncing may not seem soothing to oldies like us… babies love it! They get right into that snooze-zone when rocked up-and-down or side-to-side.
As the American Pregnancy Association noted in a recent study, infants are soothed by soft, gently-bouncing and swaying movement because it mimics their life before birth. They are used to continuously being carried and on-the-move, so the shock of life outside of the womb can be jarring.
Much as you’d like to, you can’t bounce your baby constantly. But there are some amazing rockers and bouncers on the market can do the job almost as good as mom’s loving arms. (Not to mention, they're a MUST if you plan on showering during the first few months without dying from paranoia.)
Here are a few we really love:
If you want something that’ll fit right at home in your living room, check out the Levo bouncer. This Paris-designed, Scandi-inspired piece reminds us of our much-loved Poang – only it’s a third of the size, and 300x as chic. It’s crafted with durable multi-plywood beech, and can be used from birth to 7 months. Choose from an array of cushion fabrics, from plain to printed. The whimsical Rabbit is our favorite!
This not only looks cool, it rocks! Made from a curved, single-piece frame that’s formed in strengthened acrylic, the Bloom Coco Lounger Plexistyle features a cozy seat and offers smooth, self-rocking motion. There’s an adjustable 5-point padded safety harness that’s soft, comfy and is available in your choice of 100% organic or leatherette. What’s more, there’s no assembly required. (Gotta love that!)
This limited-edition model from Baby Bjorn is the bee’s knees. It’s ergonomic (offers head, neck and back support), long-lasting (bounces your mini-me for up to two years!), and features all-natural rocking (no batteries or cords required). The baby bouncer comes in two soft materials: comfy quilted cotton, and airy quick-drying mesh. The fabrics are kind to your baby’s skin and safe to taste. Three different positions allow for play, rest and sleep. When it’s not in use, the Baby Bjorn Bouncer folds right up.
