Baby Bjorn – Baby Balance Soft Bouncer Review

I was sent a Baby Bjorn Baby Balance Soft Bouncer to review on Resource Reviews a couple of months ago, but have been desperate to try it out once Sebastian arrived.

I was waiting for hubby to open the box and put it together, but got impatient and ended up doing it myself to find that there was no self assembly involved.  You simply take it out of the box, remove the packaging, set to your required setting and it’s done!!

Made from 100% soft cotton and with rounded edges the extra supportive design creates an extra cosy feeling for baby.  I have the black / dark grey colour way which is perfect for my lounge colour scheme but there are 5 other colourways to choose from.

The bouncer is designed to give a gentle rocking movement  that develops motor skills and balance…….the more baby moves, the greater the rock.

As Sebastian is only a couple of weeks old he cannot make the bouncer rock yet, however he sits comfortably in it and watches everything going on around him.  I can gently bounce him using my foot or hand and it does give a lovely smooth bounce action.

The ergonomic design of the bouncer ensures Sebastian gets proper head and back support even from newborn and the safety harness has lovely soft padding to added comfort.  I plan to purchase the wooden toy bar to go with my chair for an added activity for Sebastian.

The bouncer has different height settings for different ages and even folds down completely flat for storage, which is great if you don’t have a lot of space and want to put it away when it isn’t in use.  When Sebastian is walking and sitting unaided the fabric can be reversed to create a comfy chair which can be used until he is approximately 3 years old (29lbs in weight).

The recommended retail price for the bouncer is £119.99 (or £129.99 for the Organic version), so it is in the top price range for bouncers, but its stylish looks, ergonomic design and the fact that this grows with your child and will last until they are well into toddlerhood makes this a fantastic buy.

  1. We had this in red for T and it was such a life saver, she loved it and I felt that she was really safe in it (perfect for taking in the bathroom with me so that I could take a shower!). It did last her for ages. The fabric washed really well and the whole thing is still impeccable.

    Hope you get lots of use out of it, in our old house I had it near the washing machine when it was on and she would love the vibration

  2. First of, you have a beautiful website. Really!

    Secondly… like Feisty Tapas said it can last for ages! I have a bouncer that is over 10 years old and is currently being heavily used by a 5th baby/child, you can check it out at BabyBjorn Bouncer. They never go for a poor price as a used item if you take good care of it and that’s the catch… it is a really good design made from excellent material so you can take care of it really easily. Just pull the fabric off and wash it. And when you don’t need it or wanna transport it you can fold it up and you’re good to go. It takes so little space!

    Thirdly… you really do have a beautiful website, I will be back! 🙂

  3. Totally agree with you on the Babybjorn bouncer it’s practical and stylish and not a garish plastic nightmare!! We bought the Babybjorn Mini version because we live in a small flat and space for us is a premium.Seriously, This is the very good review, thanks for sharing this article. please keep it up.
