For many exhausted parents, a baby bouncer or swing can be a lifesaver. These freestanding units imitate the rhythmic rocking motion of the womb to give your little one a safe and soothing place to relax. A bouncer also gives your arms a break so you can use your hands for other tasks. Not sure what to look for in a baby bouncer or swing? Here are the answers to some of the most common questions you may have.
Before buying a bouncer or swing, you'll need to find out what type of motions your baby enjoys. A swing rocks your baby back and forth and is ideal if your bundle of joy likes a steady rocking motion. If your baby enjoys car rides, opt for a vibrating bouncer. It imitates the gentle hum of a running vehicle and delivers subtle movements to help soothe your fussy baby. Does your child like less predictable motions? A basic bouncer puts your infant in control and moves in response to your baby's movements. If you have an easy-going child who likes a variety of motions, look into a convertible bouncer or swing. This model can swing in different directions and comes equipped with different speed settings so your baby can experience a wide range of movements.
Look for a swing or bouncer with a wide base. A sturdy base reduces the risk of tipping and injury when your child is using the device. Some swings and bouncers also come equipped with a 5-point harness system to keep your baby safe and secure. Finally, keep an eye out for swings or bouncers that are JPMA certified. This seal of approval from the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association lets you know which products are meeting current safety standards.
Today's bouncers and swings are designed with convenience and portability in mind. Many models are compact and made from lightweight materials so you can use your baby bouncer on the go. Others boast foldable constructions for easy storage.
Many swings and bouncers come with multiple speeds and different rocking or vibrating modes so your baby can find the perfect motion.
Want to keep your child entertained? Some models play songs and music, while others include colourful toy bars and mobiles to make sure your child stays stimulated and engaged.
Most swings on the market are battery operated and can provide up to 200 hours of swinging time. Others feature a plug in option or AC adapter so you don't need to constantly rely on batteries.
Baby swings are most commonly used during your baby's first few months. Typical bouncers and swings can accommodate babies from birth to 25 or 30 pounds. Few models can be used for babies over 30 pounds. Stop using the bouncer when your child exceeds the weight limit or when they can sit up.
You're bound to encounter drool, diaper accidents, and more during your baby's early months. Thankfully, many swings and bouncers come with removable seat covers to make clean up quick and easy.
