And we are only satisfied when our test families are satisfied. The products are then checked by independent test institutes, where they are subjected to stringent product testing--our guarantee to you that our products live up to our exacting quality checks. Finally, medical experts, with whom we have been working in close partnership since 1961, must approve our products before they are launched.

BABYBJÖRN Babysitter Balance--Natural rocking and fun

BABYBJÖRN Babysitter Balance keeps your baby happy and safe, while your hands are free for everyday tasks. There's no need for batteries as your baby's own movements make this bouncer rock. The bouncer easily adjusts to different positions so your baby can play, rest and sleep. It's lightweight and folds flat for storage or travelling. The fabric is easily removed and is machine washable. Suitable from newborn up to approximately 2 years.

Fun and developing rocking
No batteries are needed for this bouncer as it is your baby who makes it rock. Your baby quickly learns how to make the bouncer rock by his or her own movements, and this develops balance and motor skills in a completely natural way.

Proper head and back support
The ergonomic design gives your baby proper support from age newborn. The fitted fabric seat moulds itself to your baby's body and distributes weight evenly. This gives your baby good support, which is particularly important for very young babies whose muscles are not yet fully developed.

From newborn to 2 years
Being a bouncer and chair in one, the Babysitter Balance can be used for a long time. From the time your baby is newborn and until he or she has learned to sit up unaided, it can be used as a bouncer. When your child has learned to walk and sit independently, you can remove the safety harness and use the bouncer as a comfy chair.

Easy to clean
The fabric seat is easily removed when you need to clean up after your baby and wash it in the machine. Both the fabric seat and the safety harness are also reversible, which gives you four models in one.

Adjusts to four positions
The bouncer has four positions--play, rest, sleep and transport mode. It easily and quietly adjusts from the highest play position to the lower rest position and the lowest sleep position. It folds completely flat in transport mode.

Compact for easy transport and storage
Lightweight and flat-folded in transport mode, the bouncer is convenient when you're on-the-go and easy to store when not in use.

Developed with paediatrician
The Babysitter Balance is developed in close collaboration with world leading paediatricians to ensure correct support for your baby's head and back from age newborn.

Soft and durable fabric
The Babysitter Balance fabric is made from a durable cotton and polyester blend.

Made of 60% cotton och 40% polyester. The padding is 100% polyester.

Safe and tested fabrics
All fabrics in the Babysitter Balance are kind to your baby's delicate skin and completely harmless to taste or chew. The fabrics are Oeko-Tex Standard 100, class 1 approved, an international safety standard for textiles, and contain no health-hazardous substances.

The Babysitter Balance meets the European safety requirements of EN12790:2009.

Öko-Tex Standard 100, Class 1

Care instructions
The fabric seat is easy to remove and machine wash at 40°C (warm). Simply loosen the two elastic loops at the bottom and pull the fabric seat off the frame.

Machine wash at 40°C

Recommended age/weight
You can use the Babysitter Balance from birth up to approximately two years, 3.5–13 kg (8–29 lb).

Please note!
For a child weighing up to 9 kg (20 lb), who cannot sit up on his or her own without support, the safety harness should always be used. For a child weighing up to 13 kg (29 lb), who is able to sit up and walk on his/her own, the product can be used as a chair. At this point, the safety harness should no longer be used, but be removed entirely.

This product is not intended for prolonged periods of sleeping.

    Wow what a fantastic bouncer. I purchased this bouncer for, at the time, my 10 week old son. From the moment I put him in it he loved it. Although a little pricey this does not compare to any other bouncer, its worth every penny. Initially I was looking for a bouncer with the extras like vibration, music etc but I can honestly say they are not needed.

    This bouncer is very simple in design but very affective. I slide my baby in, I don't find it necessary to unhook the straps, he comfortably sits back and the material just seems to hug and mould around his body. I can speak from experience as we have used a basic bouncer, however, my son never looked comfortable. BabyBjorn is at a completely different level, it is made keeping in mind the comfort of the baby and the quality just speaks for itself. My sons head and back are very well supported and I feel at ease knowing he is comfortable whilst in there.

    I use the bouncer for everything, my son watches me do household chores, he plays and kicks (I have bought the toy bar, its fantastic as he is 3 months old and is starting to reach out and play with it, I would recommend it too) He falls asleep in it and I just adjust the height to the lowest resting position. The three different sitting positions are brilliant and very easy to use. The rocking motion is very soothing and smooth which is very different to any other bouncer, I find although lightly I tend to rock the bouncer myself. It also folds flat and will always go with us on all our travels. You can easily remove the material and machine wash it and I love the way you can reverse it to all black or back to silver.

    I spent ages deciding whether I should get this bouncer as it is expensive, but seriously don't wast time and just get it you won't regret it.

    Colour Name: Black/Silver
    I bought this bouncer on the recommendation of a friend and have never regretted it. Both my children used it and in between it was lent to two children. I've now given it to my sister for her little one so it's lasted 5 children and is still sturdy and in good condition though the fabric is slightly faded! The reason I found it so good was:
    - cover comes off very easily when it needed to be washed but stayed on properly the rest of the time.
    - folds down flat so you can put it out of the way or take it in the car with you.
    - very comfortable for baby - he didn't slip down or look all squashed up at any point
    - my baby could sit up and watch the world and if he fell asleep I just lowered it so he was lying flat
    - easy to move around the house
    - he learnt to bounce himself rather than relying on being entertained unlike the electric vibrating ones which I've seen. I did get the play attachment but neither of my children were very interested in it, though it was useful for attaching other things to to keep them entertained.
    Of all the baby equipment I bought over the years this got the most use. I even unscrewed the base and it fitted in a long suitcase to take with me when travelling. It might be marginally more expensive but well worth the money.

    Having tried and failed to get twins to nap during the daytime, this bouncer came to our rescue. Ours were not happy lying down as they wanted to see what was going on around them, they were not even happy in car seats but these did the trick and they even loved to watch dad cook.

    Not only was it good for nap time, but it meant I could read them both a story without having to juggle. When they wanted to play but weren't old enough to sit up, the BabyBjorn Wooden Toy for Babysitter kept them entertained and you could see development in their motor skills and co-ordination as they just learnt to reach them first and then moved on to spinning them and inspecting them carefully with both hands. When they were older, I even had time to sit down and have a cup of tea as the twins sat in the bouncers drinking their milk by themselves.

    Washable covers were also very handy and dried quicker than some of the quilted and padded types I've seen around, very easy to take off and put back on. The different heights were easy to adjust for sleep/rest/play and easy to put baby in, even with just one hand. Easy to fold flat in seconds and two of these took little space in the back of the car when visiting grandparents.

    It may be more expensive that others, but the quality was outstanding. And what's more, we got a fair price when we sold these on second hand.

    We were lucky to purchase this whilst on offer, but having had it from birth - 9 months so far, I can safely say I would have paid full price. It is no ordinary bouncer let me tell you. It is incredibly versatile - the cover is washable, reversible and easy to take off/put back on. It doesn't take up much room, and it's a doddle to fold up. It's very light - we've had it in the garden, taken it upstairs, had it in the bathroom (whilst mum has had a shower), taken it on the beach - you name it. My baby loves it - it's really comfortable/supportive. He's never had it on the lower settings or fallen asleep in it (he's not much of a sleeper!), but he's now at the age where he can self propel himself backwards/forwards in it, bouncing over and over - you should hear him laugh! The toy bar (£20ish extra) is worth the money too. It's well-made and my son still loves it now. The bouncer was great when my baby wasn't big enough for a highchair too - I sat him in it to have his first purees/baby rice etc. I really cannot fault it. It's been a godsend, and I wish I'd had it for my first son. Buy it - you won't regret it.
