DESCRIPTION: A lightweight baby bouncer with multiple reclining positions and removable/reversible safety harness. Available in a range of colour combinations: black/red, black/silver, dark blue/blue, brown/beige, green/lime, and blue/silver. Suitable for children from birth up to approx. 2 years (8-29lbs/3.5-13kg).
 
GOOD POINTS: The Babysitter Balance is a unique type of baby bouncer which can accommodate toddlers as well as newborns, and allows your child to practise their balance and motor skills by gently rocking themselves in the seat.
 
The Babysitter Balance has a substantial metal frame which is chunkier than the average bouncer, and is complemented with a front foot stand which prevents children tipping the seat over on itself.
 
The seat has a number of adjustable positions which can be altered by locking the positioner into place (located on the stand under the seat) - the 'play' position is designed for older children up to a maximum of 29lbs/13kg, the 'rest' position is suitable for children up to 22lbs/10kg, while the 'sleep' position can be used for babies up to 15.5lbs/7kg. The Babysitter Balance also usefully locks flat for easy travel and storage.
 
The seat itself is made from wonderfully soft fabric which provides an ideal support for your child's body, and a safety harness on the front effectively secures your child until they are old enough to climb in and out themselves. After this point, the harness can simply be unbuttoned and removed completely.
 
The seat and harness come in a range of bold and more subtle colour schemes and are reversible to provide a choice of attractive combinations. The fabric can be easily removed from the frame by unhooking the elastic loops on the base of the seat. The fabric is also fully machine washable at 40 degrees.
 
In our opinion this is a well designed and sturdy product which provides the perfect rocking motion to calm and soothe your baby, as well as providing a novel upright seat for older children.
 
BAD POINTS: It is at the top end of the price range for this type of seat, but this is reflected in the quality.
 
PRICE: Approx. £100
