With a little help from our sponsor Babylist, over the next few months we’re going to be helping you out with your baby registry. I think a baby bouncer / lounger / rocker (whatever you want to call it) is a great place to start. When you bring baby home, you’ll probably discover that you need a place to put him or her down safely. One of my jobs is keeping track of the best baby seats on the market, and these are my top 10 choices for 2013.
1- Nuna Leaf– $220
The Leaf is really cool because in addition to its beautiful design, it has a gentle swaying motion that requires just a little push to get it moving for several minutes. This is the one that would make it onto my baby registry this year.
2- BABYBJORN BabySitter Balance– $190
The BabySitter is another beautiful design. This perfectly basic design has a simple bounce motion but is extra fun with the optional wooden toy bar accessory.
3- Bloom Coco Stylewood and Plexistyle Loungers- $195
The Coco loungers are hands down the most beautiful baby loungers. These are the #1 choice for style. You can chose wood or plexiglass frames and the seat covers come in a variety of colors.
4- 4Moms Mamaroo– $240
The Mamaroo is the ultimate baby gear gadget. The seat features special rocking motions to appease the most finicky baby.
5- Maclaren Universal Rocker– $105
The Universal Rocker from Maclaren is lightweight and easy to transport. This is a great one to take along for travelling.
6- Baby Home Onfour Bouncer– $150
The Onfour comes in 8 great colors. It is lightweight and easy to travel with. Its unique feature is the front wheels which make it easy to move while baby is strapped inside.
7- Tiny Love 3-in-1 Rocker Napper– $100
The 3-in-1 Rocker Napper easily converts from a rocker to a little bassinet in case baby falls asleep while in their seat. This is a great multi-tasker.
8- Apollo Bouncer from mamas & papas- $100
The Apollo Bouncer is among the least expensive but features a fun and modern design. Music book insert plays lullabies and can be removed and used separately.
9- Chicco I-Feel Rocker– $100
The I-Feel Rocker has a stylish design with curved wood pieces. The seat is a simple rocker with mobile but folds flat for storage.
10- Peg-Perego Sdraietta Melodia Bouncer– $220
The Sdraietta Melodia is hard to pronounce but easy to use. It can rock or be placed in stationary mode. It features a removable sun canopy and colorful toy bar.
