Stuff Babies Need

Baby bouncers for newborns

Baby bouncers for newborns provide a fun and safe place for you to put your baby whilst you get stuff done. We’ve found our bouncer to be invaluable to restoring some level of sanity to our life after the arival of our little one. Here’s our pick list of great bouncers to look at, and our top tips for what to look out for when buying a baby bouncer for a newborn.

Our top tips for newborn baby bouncers

  • For use from birth, make sure the bouncer can lie flat. A bouncer that has several positions may last a little longer as once your little one is able to look arround, they may enjoy being a little more upright
  • Many bouncers come with soothing vibration – this can really help settle the baby and allow them to drift of to sleep. However, they will eat batteries! Invest in a good battery charger and set of rechargable batteries. Make sure you check what type of battery you need.
  • Some also have musical accompaniments. Personally, I don’t rate this too much, as the tunes are generally game boy quality at best.
  • Most bouncers are small enough to fit in the back of the car, so a good option to take to friends or family homes to give your baby somewhere safe and familiar to rest.

As with most baby things, there are the predictable assortment of colours and patterns to choose from, so there are sure to be some that suit your style. 

Have a look at our selected highlights of some of the baby bouncers available.

    We have a bouncer for our 5 month old. She has been in it since birth, but now she moves about and hates being strapped into it. But then she also hates being strapped into her car seat! xx

      We are also trying a sling so that we can hold our new baby whilst she sleeps! So far, she likes the sling for sleeps and the bouncer for playing!
