Baby bouncers are a must buy for all parents. However, it is important for you to consider its usability, comfort and convenience, and the cost associated with it, before making an informed buying decision. While buying a Bouncer

Dos

  • Think well about how you would be using the bouncer before deciding on which type of bouncer to buy. If you want to be completely hands-free while still keeping your baby engaged, then go for a battery-operated model.
  • Study brand reviews and look at the major features of all the models. Most big brands offer plenty of attractive features like, a toy tray along with toys in multiple colours, selection of fabric for bouncer seat, durability, etc.
  • Make sure that the bouncer you are planning to buy has passed the safety standards of organizations like JPMA.
  • Look out for sharp edges, frayed ends or loose fittings.
  • Buy combination bouncers according to your baby's preference. If your baby does not like to swing, go for a bouncer rocker instead.
  • If buying offline, take your baby along and try a bouncer model by placing the baby in it. If buying online, be sure to buy from trusted websites that are capable of providing you with all the necessary information and are also capable of recommending a good model suited to your needs.

Don'ts

  • Don't buy a bouncer model if your baby is already over or nearing the upper weight limit specified for the model. Before buying one, check that the age and weight limits specified are appropriate for your needs for your child.
  • Don't buy bouncers without asking for a demonstration. Check out the music volume levels and ensure that it isn't too loud or brash, as it could end up irritating babies instead of soothing them. Similarly, check for other functions like speed, different motions, etc.
While using a Bouncer Baby bouncers help strengthen, stretch and build babies' legs in preparation for crawling and walking, besides stimulating their mind and providing them with plenty of entertainment. However, it is important for you to follow the proper guidelines of using a baby bouncer so as to give your baby a great bouncy experience.

Dos

  • Use baby bouncers only up to six or seven months or until your baby begins to sit independently.
  • Make sure that the fittings have been made properly and that there are no sharp edges left unnoticed while assembling the baby bouncer.
  • Make sure the fabric is dry and clean.
  • Wrap your baby properly and make sure that your baby is not placed inside the bouncer without a diaper.
  • Make sure to always keep the bouncer within your reach.
  • When placing the baby bouncer on the floor, make sure that it is kept away from hazardous things like cables, cords, heaters, sharp things, etc. Place your baby in the bouncer only after you are sure that you have completely understood and followed the manufacturer's instructions.

Don'ts

  • Don't use bouncers for babies weighing above 11 kg or above the specified weight limit of a bouncer.
  • Don't place the baby bouncer with your baby inside, on an elevated surface like tabletop or soft surfaces like bed, sofa or couch. The bouncing movement could slide the bouncer to the edge and lead to a fall.
  • While shifting bouncer chairs along with baby from one place to another, don't carry it by frame or the toy bar. These features are almost brittle and aren't supposed to be used as handles.
  • Avoid leaving your baby in the bouncer for long periods of time and give the baby some floor time, in your supervision. Experts recommend mandatory time for natural movements such as crawling, tummy time, etc. for the growth of your baby's limbs and other organs.
