As much as we would like to, we can’t have our gorgeous little bundles of joy in our arms all the time. For a start we would never get anything done, but more importantly our babies would not have the opportunity to learn and develop important motor skills. There are a whole world of options out there for giving babies different experiences and the chance to learn, but every choice will benefit our babies in various ways. There is a lot to consider, not just what baby an get from it, but how it impacts on our lives to – is it easy to move around? Easy to clean? For example a Moses basket allows baby to lay flat and move around in a limited space, whereas a play mat/gym gives them much more freedom to learn skills such as rolling and dexterity when using the toy connected to the mat/gym. They are limited in their ease of moving them, a basket needs a stand and a mat/gym can be quite big. The same can be said for soothers and bouncers, there are marked differences in what baby can achieve by spending time in them.
BabyBjörn Be You Baby Bliss Cotton Bouncer
Today we are taking a look at a brand new baby bouncer from Swedish makers BabyBjörn. The BabyBjörn Be You Baby Bliss Cotton Bouncer is the newest addition to the Bouncer Bliss Collection and we have to say, it is fantastic.
Designed to suit babies from birth right up until they are 24 months old, the BabyBjörn Be You Baby Bliss Cotton Bouncer is a great addition to any household. It provides the proper support required for your baby’s neck, head and back, distributing their weight evenly throughout, meaning that it is super comfortable for them to spend time in and wont cause them any issues. Once they are able to sit up on their own and walk (from 9-13kg), you simply turn the cover around on the bouncer and it becomes a comfy chair for your child to use. This is done using the stunning 100% cotton soft mesh cover that comes in 4 beautifully subtle colours that are sure to fit in in any home – Vintage Turquoise, Terracotta Pink, Navy Blue and our favourite Lavender Violet. BabyBjörn’s philosophy is to provide babies with a ‘safe, comforting start to life’ which the Be You Baby Bliss Cotton Bouncer certainly does, they believe that this will benefit your little one for years to come.
Aside from being comfortable, the BabyBjörn Be You Baby Bliss Cotton Bouncer is soothing. As the name suggests, the gentle bouncing motion created by your baby’s own movements, helps to relax, soothe and create an atmosphere of bliss for your little one. What is brilliant about this bouncer is that whilst in it, baby is developing skills such as balance and their motor skills. It is more than just a lovely, comfortable way to rest. It has very natural and calm motions that are completely 100% created by the baby, there are no batteries or plugs involved. This of course makes the bouncer safer, but also makes it easier to move around the house.
The ability to move the bouncer from room to room is a great feature, it means that whether you are sat in the front room, or in the kitchen getting dinner ready, you can easily take the bouncer and your baby with you. This means that your little one can see you, helping them to be more relaxed, but it also allows them to watch the world go by, increasing their exposure to stimulus which in turn means they will learn more and develop skills faster.
The BabyBjörn Be You Baby Bliss Cotton Bouncer is lightweight and easy to get setup up, in fact you simply remove it from the box and adjust the height setting, (there are three different positions that can be used), then you can pop your baby straight into the bouncer. It can then be stored completely flat when not in use, taking up minimal space. Finally, the pretty mesh cover is easily cleaned and can be washed at 40 degrees.
All in all, we found the BabyBjörn Be You Baby Bliss Cotton Bouncer absolutely incredible. Not only is your baby safe and secure, comfortable and relaxed, it is easy to take the bouncer from room to room and keep it clean. This makes baby and mum, (in our case), much happier and able to spend more time together.
Available from BabyBjörn the Be You Baby Bliss Cotton Bouncer is £144.99.
