A baby bouncing chair one of most helpful things a new parent can buy. Not only does the bouncing motion help to calm fussy babies, but they are also light enough to move from room to room and take up very little space in your home.
Types of bouncy chairs
There are plain bouncy chairs available that can be rocked by your hand or your foot. There are some with flexible frames that have bright toys hanging from it. Battery operated bouncy chairs have a range of settings that play soothing music or nursery rhymes and have soft but strong vibrations. The vibrating chairs can help your baby to drift off to sleep without the need to rock the bouncer. There are also a range of swings for babies if you don’t want a bouncing chair; this will gently rock your baby to sleep just like a baby rocking cradle.
What to look for?
The first thing to look for is the safety restraint. They should have a three-point safety harness that fits between your baby’s legs and wraps around their waist. This is to ensure your baby does not slip or fall out of such bouncer chairs. If you intend to use bouncer chairs outdoor, you will need a canopy for it to shield your baby from the sun. Base The baby bouncer or swing must be sturdy and comfortable. It should have a wide base, so that there is no chance of it tipping over with your baby still in it. The seat itself needs to be well padded and have a generous amount of support for your baby’s head, neck and shoulders. Washability and settings Choosing a bouncy chair with the right material is important; it may be exposed to many messy items, so the quality of being easy to wash is vital. If you decide to use a battery operated bouncy chair, be sure to have a look at the various settings each of them. Choose the vibration speed, music or sounds that will help to soothe your baby.
Important things to remember
· Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions for minimum and maximum weight and age limits. · Never move the bouncy chair to another room with your baby still inside. · Always ensure the safety restraint is properly fastened when your baby is in the bouncy chair. · Never leave your baby unattended while in the bouncy chair. Final word Your baby will use a bouncy chair for only a few months, so choosing the right one for your baby is essential. If you’re thinking of using the bouncy chair or swing for your next child, you will need one that is strong, versatile and can stand the test of time.
