Tesco Direct has this Bright Starts Savanna Dreams bouncer on half price at the moment. Marked down from £35 to £17.50. My son loved his bouncer. It helped keep him occupied, let him get a good visual around the room when he was just starting to sit up, and was used to start the weaning process. He also took his naps in the seat. In fact we still have it, although now it is the cat's favourite place to nap!
It is really important when looking at baby bouncers to make sure that the cover can be taken off and washed. Babies will drool, spit up, and have nappy accidents. Usually immediately after you've washed the cover from the previous incident!
The Bright Starts baby bouncer has a machine washable seat pad, which is a nice practical finishing touch. Its cradling seat design has an adjustable 3-point harness for baby's comfort and safety.
The seat has a lovely, bright design that I quite like. It is suitable from birth up to a weight of 3kg. There's three toys on the bar, which is removable. You get a star shaped bead rattle, and a geometric shaped teether, along with a giraffe. The seat also vibrates, to help soothe the baby.
The bouncer we had, which was a different model, also vibrated. This worked well to help my son nod off when napping as a very tiny baby but he found it quite irritating as he got older. Each baby will be different. But simply rocking him worked just as well, and I could do that with one foot while reading a book and relaxing with a cup of tea.
