On opening the box I was impressed to find BABYBJÖRN has lived up to their high standard with another great design. This sleek bouncer will appeal to most people with an array of colour choices to fit with any home decor. Even without reading the instructions it takes no longer than a couple of minutes to discover how the Bouncer Soft works. I adjusted the Bouncer Soft to the lowest setting and placed Ollie in. She slept peacefully and seemed happy but I'm not yet convinced as all my children slept through anything for the first week. I'm eager to see how she goes once the sleep coma wears off.
As time goes on, Ollie spends more time awake and I find I enjoy using the Bouncer Soft more and more. I use it while I shower to keep a well meaning toddler from poking her. I use it when I need to grab a nappy from the other room and don't want her left on the floor. As we approach the third week I find Olive needs to be upright after a feed to help with reflux problems, so now I use it after feeds when I don't have the time to hold her.
The first really standout feature of the bouncer is how easy it is to fold away, I can definitely see myself taking it with us when we go on holidays. I also love how easily it slips off to be washed especially when using with a newborn (ours was covered in vomit the second time I used it). It's so easy to use I find myself no longer using our swing as it has a seatbelt and sometimes takes more time than I have with three children under five. Another great feature is the bouncer's ability to be turned into a chair when the child outgrows the bouncer feature. And let's not forget that no batteries are needed.
I would happily recommend the Bouncer Soft to anyone looking for a convenient, comfortable bouncer that will outlast others.
