The rocking motion and vibration of your baby bouncing up and down can actually cause the bouncer to slip and slide across the floor. This is particularly a problem with lighter, more portable baby bouncers on slippery floors such as timber or tile. If you notice your baby’s bouncer starts to move across the floor, immediately discontinue use. A non-slip mat placed underneath the baby bouncer will usually solve the problem.
Not all baby activity gyms have music and lights. Some parents want them, while others prefer to stay away from all the lights and sounds! Most babies find music comforting, and lights will stimulate the baby. How your baby reacts is individual; some find that their babies end up overstimulated and fussy. If you aren’t sure about your child’s reaction, make sure it is a feature that you can turn on and off.
Most diaper bags and even diaper backpacks these days now come with a removable changing pad that you can wipe clean. Unless you already plan on buying a separate changing pad, look for a bag that offers a nice sized one to accommodate your baby. Some of your cheaper bags include a changing pad as an added incentive but they’re often not of great quality being smaller and thinner.
