Overall Take

When using a baby lounger, it is important that you always supervise your baby. Always place your baby on his or her back during nap and sleep times, as this is the recommended position for reducing Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). You’ll also want to reserve sleep times for a crib that meets the standards set by the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Lightweight and eye-catching design and interesting toys and sounds.
- Baby Stroller Home
Its light-weight yet durable design. Thanks to the light materials used, the rocker can be easily moved, adjusted and even stored without any need to exert extra “muscle power. It also has a wide, well-balanced and sturdy base making safety more enhanced and a negative tendency of the rocker “sliding”.

What experts didn't like

We noticed that the seat sides are relatively shallow, though, and the seat itself is so deep and wide that it’s relatively easy for a small baby to twist and turn or slump over at an angle.
- New York Times Wirecutter
Can be difficult to assemble
- Born Cute
Regular purchase of 1D battery may be required as every three hours change of battery may be needed when the music and other elements of vibration are put on a continuous mode.
- Mom n Kids
Some of the customers had issues with setting it up.
- Baby Stroller Home
The only downside to this item is that turning on the music function can be quite a difficult feat to do. Since it is not written on the instructions manual, parents must figure out where the “music button”.

An Overview On Baby Rockers

Having an infant in the house can mean you get nothing done. But there are still dishes to be washed, laundry to be folded and meals to cook, whether you have a newborn or a teenager.

For babies, a rocker can be a great way to free yourself up to get things done throughout the day. Instead of standing next to a swing or baby seat and manually rocking your infant, you can set things up to run automatically. But there are varying types of baby rockers to choose from, so it’s important to consider each type.

One rocker uses a box beneath the bouncer seat to provide a gentle, subtle vibration. This can be just enough to soothe a baby to sleep or, at the very least, into a relaxed state. Then there are full swings that move in varying directions to rock your baby to sleep.

Many rockers add in other soothing features like music and sounds. Some even build in a bar that sits above the baby, with toys attached to provide extra entertainment. These toys will keep a baby busy if sleep isn’t in the cards during the rocking session. Some even have objects like mirrors that have been shown to keep babies enthralled.

The Baby Rocker Buying Guide

  • If you opt for a swing, look for one that has a detachable bouncer. This will allow you to remove the seat and take it on the go with you.
  • Swings that need power will often run on batteries. But you can find some that also come with an A/C adapter. This lets you rely on power when you’re at home so that you don’t have to worry about draining the batteries.
  • Safety is always a top priority. If you’re choosing a rocker that swings, make sure there’s a harness that will hold the baby in place when you aren’t standing nearby.
  • Be careful when letting your baby sleep in the rocker. Safety experts say rockers and swings aren’t a safe place for babies to sleep. The baby’s head could tip down or an infant could become tangled in the safety harness. If your baby is napping, make sure you’re nearby to keep a close watch. It could instead be a great way to gently rock your baby to sleep before moving him to his crib.
  • If you’re using a rocker, make sure you always leave it on the floor. Setting it on an elevated surface like a countertop or table can be dangerous.
