Every expectant mother should consider investing in a rocker or a bouncer, and have it ready at home for their baby’s arrival. Bouncers and rockers are great for letting your baby chill out in a safe space. They’re brilliant at letting baby get used to their new surroundings, and make a welcome change from lying flat in a Moses basket – so useful in avoiding flat head syndrome too. Rockers in particular, are a brilliant soother for any baby in discomfort – we’re talking reflux, colic, etc.
All of our recommended products in this collection are suitable from birth.
