She is a baby in arms. Always held. Forever passed between her adoring daddy and her two big sisters who fight for the chance to cuddle her.
Most of all, she is close to my heart - usually resting on my chest. We are almost never apart, she and I. Still intertwined, cocooned together though she is no longer inside me.
Even so, there are moments when hands need to be free and we have always appreciated having a bouncer on-hand. Lightweight and well-designed, the BabyBjorn Babysitter Balance tops products in the category. The seat is safe and soft - and bounces with the baby's movements (so much nicer than electric vibrations). I particularly appreciate the "no-frills" elegance and the understated style.
Rated for newborn babies up to approximately 2 years old, you can purchase the seat in a wide variety of colors. An organic option is also available. The fabric is, of course, removable and machine-washable for easy care.
Since we're in Arizona and the summer is almost upon us (the high was 91 today), we have the Babysitter Balance Air, which is crafted out of a breathable mesh for baby's comfort.
You can buy it on Amazon and get free shipping!
