Unlike with a swing, speed and motion don’t really matter for a bouncer. So if you choose, you’re able to go battery- and cord- (read: flashing light and sound) free. Our pick? The sleek wooden Babyhome bouncer.
WHAT WE LOVE
- A baby entertainment unit that’s sleek when in use and unobtrusive when stored, folding completely flat
- Two reclining positions give baby options to rock. And if he or she just wants to sit back and put up those baby feet, well, there’s a stationary position too
- Washable fabric keeps it looking as good as new
Muted colors, laminated wood and a slim design mean you’ll love this piece of gear just as much as baby.
INNOVATION AWARD: BABYMOOV SWOON UP
When baby’s being super interactive, you’ll want a bouncer that can rise to the occasion. With two height positions, the Swoon Up can be raised to table height, so baby can enjoy mealtime without a high chair. Bonus: the attached mobile and 360-degree swivel keep baby engaged.
