Baby Bouncer Buying Guide

FAQs


Q

My child sleeps better in the bouncer than on the bed. Is it safe to let her sleep in the bouncer?

Most baby bouncers are designed to provide babies with a soothing and comforting ambiance. The bouncing motions and vibrations, along with soft music, are most conducive to a happy baby sleep. However, bouncers are not designed for a long period usage. Hence, it is not recommended12 to let your baby sleep in the bouncer. What you can do, is transfer the baby to a bed or crib once she sleeps.
Q

I am worried if there will be any issues related to spinal alignment if my baby sits in a baby bouncer.

There has been no strong proof of spinal alignment associated with baby bouncer usage. However, letting your baby remain in bouncers for long periods can hamper the spine development13. Hence, use the bouncer only for short periods of time, under your supervision, and your baby should be just fine.
Q

Can I use bouncers for both my kids?

Most bouncers can only be used for kids who cannot yet sit independently, so you might want to check the bouncer's weight limit before letting both your kids use them. In any case, a bouncer can, and should, hold only one kid at a time. However, using a bouncer for one child in combination with a baby carrier or stroller for another can help you easily manage both your kids simultaneously, without getting too harrowed.
Q

Is it ok if I use the bouncer for my two months old baby?

Bouncer can be used for baby right from birth. However, if your child is a preemie, you might want to consult your paediatrician before determining whether the bouncer is suitable for your baby.
Q

My baby is so attached to her bouncer that she is reluctant to play on the floor. What do I do?

Bouncer or not, floor time is highly important for babies. Most bouncers are compact, foldable and lightweight. So try distracting the baby with a toy or book while putting away the bouncer for some time to give the baby adequate floor time. You can always set up the bouncer back quickly when you need to attend to something else and require the baby to be safe while you are distracted.
Q

My daughter is colicky. Can a bouncer help her feel more comfortable?

The vibrations/ movements of a bouncer are a godsend for colicky babies. Placing them on a bouncer works more effectively than comforting them by holding them in the arms or putting them down on their tummy.
Q

Is it safe to feed my four-month-old on a bouncer?

Bouncer seats are not designed for feeding. Babies can choke or get injured by the feeding utensil. This is unavoidable on any moving baby seat, including swings. You are supposed to hold baby when feeding using a bottle, and for solids, you are supposed to use high chairs or convertible baby boosters/feeding chairs to prevent injury to your baby.
