We want a bouncy chair for new baby. last time we were given one which was ok but nothing great, not complaining as it was free! It has been given back as the person has had another baby themselves so we are going to buy one now.
We want it to be quite sturdy on account of DD aged 3 likely 'helping'! We would quite like some unusual really, not really big on disney stuff.
Can anyone recommend anything that a newborn, young baby would enjoy being in, has something pretty to look at.
I like the fisher price rainforest range, if you want something a step up from the basic. They have just released their new "Precious Planet" range so the rainforest stuff will probably be much cheaper now (or easily available secondhand etc) - in fact they have a rainforest swing in our local secondhand baby shop, I noticed today. (DS waay too big now!)
don't get anything too expensive, you may end up with a baby like ours who HATED being put down in anything lol. or a 3 yr old brother who breaks the expensive swinging contraption you buy to try and stop the new baby crying the whole time
Another vote for the BabyBjorn chair. It's brilliant and the DC love it. It's been an absolute lifesaver for us with both of them. DS is 3 months and uses it a lot, since he was born DD (21 months) uses it quite a bit too.
It's taken quite a bit of abuse but there's nothing wrong with at all.
See I'm not keen on the sort that TIY linked to. I like to have something that lies as flat as possible. When I was looking a few years ago for DS the only thing I could find that suited my criteria was the Chicco one. All the others on the market seemed to be quite upright even in the most reclined position.
