Best Baby Bouncer UK

Parenting, especially in the first year, can be very tricky. Your little one wants you ALL. THE. TIME. A first-time parent knows what it means to literally not have time for themselves.

Thank goodness for whoever thought of baby bouncers! They’re one of the baby product inventions that are indeed heaven-sent. While they may not keep you baby entertained for hours on end, they at least buy you a few minutes to an hour (if you’re lucky).

So what are the best baby bouncers these days? We’ve listed our top 10 below, along with what you should be looking out for when buying baby bouncers.

 

Things to Consider When Buying Baby Bouncers

In the UK, baby bouncers can cost anywhere between £30 to £700, depending on the features you are after. Other than looking for one that falls within your budget, here are some things you should consider when buying a baby bouncer.

Safety Harness

The bouncer should at least have a 3-point harness to prevent your baby from falling or slipping off the bouncer. An even safer option is a 5-point harness.

 

Padded Cushion

Ensure the bouncer’s seat is as comfy as possible for your baby. The comfier they are, the little one will stay longer on them.

 

Hygiene

Drools, spills, and accidental leaks may happen on the bouncer, so you’d want one that has removable covers for ease of wash and cleaning.

 

Recline and Motion

If you want a bouncer that grows with your baby, a reclining seat would be a reasonable consideration. Having bouncer that moves can also be a plus. If your baby loves car trips, a moving
