Can’t decide which bouncy chair, rocker or seat to buy? Take a look at the products that our mum testers decided deserved a place on the Mother&Baby Awards 2015 shortlist to help make your decision a little easier.
Designed to soothe and calm your baby with its smooth and steady rocking motion, the RockOut is one of the lightest rockers on the market at just 3kg. It features stability legs that create a handy feeding seat and an adjustable Quick Smart Supportive Harness, which opens out fully for easy access. The plectrum lever gives the rocker three adjustable positions and also allows it to be quickly collapsed to become portable for travel and compact for storage.
Suitable from birth, this ergonomic bouncer’s three positions mean your baby can sleep, rest and play – with a safety harness to keep her safely strapped in. The fun and natural bouncing movement develops your baby’s motor skills and balance.
The Hoopla rocker is perfect for playtime and relaxing, combining contemporary design with a choice of bright or natural colours. The headrest cushion is adjustable to three different positions and as your baby grows the headrest and booster cushion can be removed to give her additional room. Hoopla also offers four reclining positions and a toy bar with an innovative sliding feature for your little one to play with.
The supportive upright seat on a wide, sturdy base keeps your baby secure, while the interchangeable flower teether and a soft butterfly encourage her to sit up and play. She can reach and pull the toys, encouraging gross motor development and developing your baby's natural curiosity. The soft seat pad is removable and machine washable and the lightweight seat can be folded flat for compact storage and easy portability.
The Woodland Rocker features an adjustable backrest that can be moved between one of three positions, so your baby can play, relax or feed. Simple controls allow the Woodland Rocker to be used as a fixed position or rocker chair, with two gentle vibration settings, soothing sound effects and a hanging toy bar to promote sensory development. The Woodland Rocker is also practical for parents, with a machine washable seat cover and single action flat-fold for easy transportation or storage.
This Disney bouncer offers a sensory treat with bright colours, 3D heads and crinkly ears. It fixes easily and securely to a door frame with a strong clamp and adjustable straps and back buckles ensure the perfect fit and give you peace of mind. Tested to one million bounces, the bouncers are machine washable at 30°C and suitable for babies who can support their heads up to a maximum weight of 12kg.
Designed to soothe and relax your baby, the Nuna Leaf has a unique and natural gliding motion. Featuring a distinctive design, the ultra-smooth, gliding motion rocks your baby to sleep, with movement that lasts more than two minutes with a single push. It grows with little ones, converting to a child’s seat after its initial use as a baby seat.
This infant seat has five different motions, all modelled after the natural movements parents make to comfort their babies. The mamaRoo plush has a soft seat fabric, plus it’s machine washable and easy to zip in and out.
