We needed to get a new bouncer for baby #2 (because our first one broke). We decided to go with the Svan Bouncer (retails between $100 and $119) and boy, did we make the right choice — Baby Allegra loves it!
The Svan Bouncer has a fully adjustable seat, a natural bounce (which our girl adores), it folds flat for travel (it has been to Grammie’s house many a time), an ergonomic backrest, and my favorite – the 3 toy loops. I can change the toys on the Svan Bouncer anytime my little gal gets bored. Now if her brother would stop trying to take them off!
After actually agonizing about what color we wanted (since the design was so adult friendly), we picked the cute vanilla/sage color. It complements every room we put it in (unlike the other scads of loud battery-operated baby gear lying around). The padded fabric seat easily detaches for machine washing, though I’ve only had to wipe off the straps a few times.
Since Miss A is now on barley cereal, I can also feed her in her Svan Bouncer. But I have to take the toys off the toy loops first though (or else she gets distracted). I actually used to rock Allegra to sleep with my foot taping on the back part (she used to nap in it constantly). Now at almost 5 1/2 months, she prefers to use it in the sitting up position and see her world! During mealtimes, when she isn’t in her high chair, she sits in the Svan Bouncer, watching every morsel of food we eat!
