I was so happy to put together this post because the Bouncer Balance Soft by BABYBJORN is one of my absolute favorite baby products. It’s pretty obvious we are big fans of BABYBJORN over here at the Wise Baby. Lindsey posted earlier this week about the Travel Crib Light and I’ve already sung my praises about the Cradle. But, today we are devoting our attention to the fabulously simply, but effective Baby Bouncer Balance Soft.
Like all BABYBJORN products, the Bouncer boasts a simple modern design that requires no batteries for usage. It’s ergonomic, responds to baby’s own movements and can be loved by small babies and toddlers alike.
No assembly! This product is good-to-go from the box, which is makes it a winner in my book. Fold open, and you’re set! When you want to store the bouncer or take with you for travel, just pull the red safety lever on the bottom and fold flat. Easy!
Multi-use: We’ve used this bouncer as a place for Berit to nap, play, bounce and eat. I love that it has three recline settings, making it perfect for sitting upright or suitable for snoozing. For babies with reflux, this bouncer is a perfect solution for feeding while elevated to help prevent spit-ups. Once your baby can walk unassisted, you can flip the fabric covering around and use the bouncer as a chair.
Natural Movement: BABYBJORN is famous for their body-response feature that is highlighted in many of their products. For newborns and smaller infants, the bouncer will move with a light touch of your hands or feet. But, for older babies who love to kick their legs, plop them in the seat and watch them bounce away!
Safe + Supportive: The Bouncer Balance was designed to provide your baby with proper head, neck and back support. The fabric outer fits snugly over the metal frame, which molds itself to your baby’s body. This feature is genius for tiny babes who cannot yet sit up unassisted or cannot support their own weight. The Bouncer keeps them elevated so they can see around the room, but also cradled and comfortable without worry of flopping over. Lastly, this product is equally sturdy on both carpeted and hardwood floors.
Machine Washable: My favorite feature! Not only do you have many choices of fabric and color options (mesh, cotton or organic cotton), but the whole thing can be tossed in the washing machine. I can’t tell you how many times I was thankful that this product could be easily cleaned. Dribbles, spit ups and blowouts are inevitable and you’ll be happy you don’t have to do any tedious spot cleaning.
While this product is pricey ($199), it can be used every day from infancy to toddlerhood. We love its simple design which looks great with any aesthetic or style in your home. Baby will be comfy and cradled in the washable fabric cover and will love the self-bouncing feature. There are many similar products on the market, but the Balance Soft is cream of the crop!
