This past Spring I had the opportunity to attend the local launch party for BabyBJorn’s brand new Babybjorn Bouncer Mini, hosted by Modern Mama. Not only were we given an exclusive opportunity to see the bouncers before they launched, we were also each given one to take home and try out for ourselves!
Before attending the launch event the only Babybjorn products we had were our potty and footstool. I won’t lie I was a bit skeptical before going to the party, knowing what the cost of the regular bouncer was. We had purchased a bouncer when Hazel was born and it was a fraction of the price of the Babybjorn. I just couldn’t see the value in spending that much more for something that did the same job. Let’s just say upon seeing the Babybjorn Bouncer Mini in person, I fell in love pretty much instantly and can’t wait to get our little guy in our new bouncer this fall.
Here’s what I can tell you about the bouncer and why it’s worth every penny. It provides proper neck and back support for babies, newborn to approximately 6 months (until they are 20 lbs or sitting up on their own, whichever comes first). It is powered 100% by baby. This means there is no need for batteries and the baby will not become reliant on a swinging motion or vibration to relax. This will help them learn to self sooth and develop fine motor skills. The bouncer is light weight, making it easy to move from room to room as you go about your day. It has two positions, one for resting and a more upright position for playing. You simply need to remove the legs and flip them over to switch positions. This leads me to my two favourite things about the bouncer. #1 It’s easy to assemble, and when I say easy I mean EASY. The bouncer can be put together in under 10 minutes, its that easy, and it’s 100% screw free, no need for any tools to assemble. My second favourite thing about the bouncer, the fabric seat is removable and washer friendly! Because the bouncer is so easy to assemble the cover is easy to remove, making it easy to clean up any messes your little one might make. If the bouncer mini had been around when we had Hazel two years ago, I would have purchased one in a heartbeat.
Not only was I given a bouncer to try out and use, but I was given one to GIVEAWAY to one of my readers as well! We’ve done quite a few giveaways lately that all involve liking and following so I thought I would do something a bit different and fun at the same time.
