YOUR BABY’S WEIGHT
The ideal bouncer should be able to support and rock the baby without the risk of failing. Most of them usually have labels indicating the required weight range. Some of them have special weight features such as additional expansion to accommodate the weight of a growing baby. This way, you can use it comfortably when the baby grows into a toddler without having to get another one every few months. Such bouncers ma save you a lot of money in the long run.
You should also take into account the size of the bouncer that you are buying. The small ones are usually light and therefore, easy to carry around. Others are of medium size and are ideal if you don't intend to move a lot. There are also some which are very large (and heavy) and may require a permanent position. The ideal size will depend on the function. The size may also be affected by your baby's size and growth pattern. Needless to say, a huge baby will need an equally huge bouncer.
If you are a mother, you understand that you cannot simply put a baby in a bouncer and expect them to sit quietly. You have to keep their little minds and fingers busy. Toys are an essential part of everyone's childhood, which is why your bouncer should have enough space and features to accommodate them. Some bouncers come attached to toys and others with buttons for doing different things such as playing music or animal sounds. It is up to you to decide which ones will capture your baby's interests.
FLEXIBILITY AND ADDITIONAL FEATURES
If you are trying to stay on a budget or save some money, you should consider getting a bouncer that can be adjusted to suit other purposes. For instance, instead of getting a stroller, you could get a bouncer that can be turned to one. It should come with wheels and other safety features that should keep the baby in place comfortable. While the price may not be exactly friendly, it will undoubtedly be cheaper than getting the baby a bouncer and a separate stroller.
Conclusively, the perfect baby bouncer should suit all your baby's needs in terms of weight, size, comfort, access to toys, and safety. You can also check out those that fit your budget but remember that as long as the baby is comfortable and safe, the price does not really matter.
