Cribs and strollers are new parent essentials, but ask any bleary-eyed mom or dad and they will tell you that bouncers are a must-have too! Not only does the rocking motion of sitting in the bouncer help develop a child's motor skills, but the soothing and calming effect is a godsend for parents. There are plenty of bouncers on the market, but check out our top picks for the cream of the eco-friendly crop.
A favorite of green parents everywhere, the Babybjörn Organic Babysitter Balance is made from organically grown cotton and hazard free materials. This newest version also offers an improved level adjustment catch so that you can switch positions easily without waking baby if (crossing fingers) he or she happens to fall asleep.
While this bouncer made by long-time Inhabitots fave Oeuf has some very important features, including a 3-point safety belt, we have to say that the first thing that caught our eye about it is its sleek and modern appearance! Its lovely quilted cover is made of 100% cotton outside and it comes with a satin chrome steel frame.
The Svan Bouncer is made with baby’s developing skeletal system in mind and has a hard back to keep your little one’s spine straight. It also features several different settings so that baby can recline, sit up or lounge depending on his mood and the time of day!
This beautiful Coco bouncer is the perfect addition to a sustainable and contemporary nursery, and it can easily hang out in the living room without being an eyesore. It’s made of responsibly-harvested wood
and its cushioning is colored with non-toxic pigments.
The Hushamok Dream really lives up to its name, with its nest-like design. The setup includes a modern aluminum stand, an organic cotton hammock, two fitted organic cotton sheets, a removable poly-filled hypoallergenic mattress, and even a travel bag for when you and baby are on the go.
