I love our baby bouncer. We bought it when Oscar was born and it is still going strong.
It is the old-fashioned wire frame, net type - the same that Mum used for her babies. You can still buy them brand new though - goes to show how awesome they are!
The only problem is, it is UGLY. This is it...I would always throw a blanket over it for a bit of extra padding. It is such a pain when you want to put the baby down though and find that someone has gone walk about with the blanket! I've been thinking for ages that I should just sew up some kind of a cover to keep on it and finally got around to it yesterday.
Ta da! Looks MUCH better, don't you think? I used funky Ikea fabric and padded it with a layer of left-over quilt wadding I had in the cupboard. The back is the same as the front so if it gets grubby I just have to flip it over and then wait for the second side to get dirty before having to wash it!
And the little man looks pretty pleased with it!
I'm off to join him for a quick nap while everyone is asleep!
