Best Baby Bouncers

We put eight of the UK’s top bouncers to the test, and our absolute favourite was the Nuna Leaf Rocker

Best Baby Bouncer 2018

Nuna Leaf

The Nuna Leaf is the most impressive rocker on the market. It looks great and is incredibly simple to use, clean, and put together – with a gentle and soothing side to side rocking motion to mimic the 'float of a leaf on the breeze'. And the removable cover is even machine washable. What's not to love? That's why it came out number one in the bouncers category, and has been selected as our Best Baby Bouncer 2018.

Best Budget Bouncer 2018

Red Kite Cozy Bounce

With two designs to choose from, this bouncer looks pleasant and ticks all of the basic boxes – even if it hasn't got all the bells and whistles of some other products out there. It has a reasonable bouncing motion and a removable toy bar, keeping your baby totally entertained and soothed. If you're looking for a decent bouncer without a huge price tag, we think this is your best option, and this is why the Cozy Bounce won our Best Budget Bouncer 2018.

Best Electric Bouncer 2018

Joie Serina 2-in-1 Swing and Rocker

Although it may be a more expensive option, we think the range of electric features in the Joie Serina 2-in-1 (and the choice of three recline positions) make it worth the cost. The rocker swings in two different directions, plays a selection of sounds, and boasts six different swing speeds – soothing baby in so many different ways. Which is why we awarded it Best Electric Bouncer 2018.
