This morning Jennifer and I attended a BABYBJÖRN hosted breakfast to introduce the new version of their classic bouncing seat called the BABYBJÖRN Bouncer Balance Soft. We’re fans! I have the classic Babysitter Balance and my five-week old son enjoys it lots and when he tested the new Bouncer today, he too was a fan.
The Bouncer Balance features an updated design and new colors. It has three adjustable seating positions - play, rest, and sleep. I like that it’s not battery operated. A baby’s own movements gently rocks the chair, which promotes more of a self soothing behavior. So for example, if a baby falls asleep, the movement will stop and the baby will not learn to need the constant movement. Thumbs up for this feature, I like!
Something I didn’t know about the classic bouncer and this new Bouncer Balance Soft is that the fabric is reversible, so that you can transform the bouncer into a chair when your child can walk on their own. Brilliant. My toddler is constantly trying to climb into her little bros’ bouncer. Now she can use it as a chair!
Also pointed out to me today is that the bouncer can be used when first starting your child on solid foods. Good idea. I remember using the Bumbo, but I think this is a better option.
The Bouncer Balance Soft is recommended for ages 0-2 years or up to 29 pounds. The prices range from $199.95 for cotton fabric to $219.95 for mesh and organic fabrics. For more information visit www.babybjorn.com.
