I wish I invested in one of these sooner 😍
I will start by saying, wow! I wish I purchased a Joie bouncer sooner. I am a first time mum with a 13 week old baby girl, my partner works away, so he is only home one week in every 3. So looking after bub is on me most of the time. I have the most beautiful little girl, but she doesn't like too much time on her own, she loves being with her mumma 24/7, night sleeps are ok, we can usually get 4-6 hours straight with her sleeping in her co sleeper, but day sleeps have always been tough, she will only sleep on me. So through the day I will camp up on the couch everytime she needs a sleep, or I will put her in her carrier, which both aren't great options, but my baby needs sleep, so I have been doing everything I can to make sure she is sleeping when she needs. I was extremely lucky to win the Joie Dreamer rocker and bouncer. I was extremely excited to try this product. The first thing I want to say is my baby fell asleep in it within the first half an hour. She hasn't slept anywhere but on me through the day since she was a week or 2 old. At first I didn't know what to do with myself, I am so use to stopping everything so she can have a sleep, now with the rocker, I am able to be productive and get things done around the house whilst she has the majority of her day sleeps in her rocker. Not only does my daughter sleep in her rocker, but she loves being in it in general. I can pick her up in it and move her between rooms which is very handy. She has a swing, but would get fussy in it after 10-20 minutes and would need to be picked up, with her rocker she is happy in it consistently. The Joie bouncer is full of amazing features: - The bouncer will accommodate babies with a weight capacity up to 13kgs - It is Ultra slim, and folds up nice and compact for easy storage in even the smallest spaces. And as a Mum I know that most of our space now is taken up with baby things, so the fact the rocker folds up small enough to go under the bed, under my babies draws, behind the couch etc is great. - The Seat gently rocks and bounces with a push or when baby moves which is great for when my baby moves or startled herself whilst sleeping, the rocking puts her back to sleep. - I live between 2 houses so the rocket being lightweight and easily portable makes it a lot easier to transport between houses. It is also perfect for traveling. - 3 position reclining seat and 2 position adjustable leg rest offer comfort options for baby - so many options make the Joie bouncer perfect for all babies. - 2 speed soothing vibration pairs with 5 classical lullabies and 5 nature sounds to calm little ones - my baby loves the vibration. It helps to settle and calm her and also helps to keep her settled whilst sleeping. The sound options as great, there is something for all babies and suitable volume options for all occasions. - Removable, washable, plush infant body support and seat pad are cosy and perfectly cocoon baby - my baby is so very comfortable in the bouncer. - Rock stop foot flips down to convert to stationary seat - my baby loves sitting as upright as possible. She loves the rocker as a seat, it allows her to see everything that is going on around her, and it is great for me knowing she had a safe spot to sit. - Removable, rotating toy bar with 2 toys for playtime entertainment - the toys create endless entertainment, when the rocker is rocking the toys move around and my baby is glued to them, - Open top design for easy access to baby - very easy to put bub in and get bub out, I find it a lot easier on my back than other baby seats. Constant bending and lifting can take a toll, but I find the positions on the rocker are much easier to lift from. - SoftTouch, 3-point harness with soft lower buckle cover - the harness is safe, comfortable and easy to use. The material that the bouncer is beautiful and I love the colours and patterns. To sum it up, I love the Joie dreamed rocker and bouncer. I really do wish I had one of these in my house sooner. I think it would be amazing for all mums, but especially mums with clingy babies who struggle to put them down and attend to house duties, study, go to the loo, and any other activities that we struggle to do whilst carrying our baby around. As much as we love it, constantly carrying our babies around takes it's toll on our body, especially having a big baby. The rocker has taken a lot of pressure off my back and shoulders. The Joie dreamer rocker and bouncer is very competitively priced and the perfect product for both mum and bub.
