Bouncer’s are the perfect place for your little one to play and rest whilst looking at the world around them and it doesn’t get better than the BabyBjorn Baby Bouncer Bliss. With it’s 3 positions, compact fold for easy storage, and gently bounce motion it’s a firm favourite of ours. But what did our parent testers think of it?

The BabyBjörn Bouncer Bliss could not have arrived at a more perfect time. Our second baby was about 3 weeks old and we were so excited to try it out.
We borrowed a BabyBjorn bouncer with our first and loved it and this new range of fabrics is just amazing.
It arrived very well packaged, with the bouncer in the BabyBjorn box which was inside another box with padding for protection. It was so easy to set up and we had the baby in it within 5 mins. As she is still so small we use it on the lowest setting which is suitable from birth and when she gets bigger we can use the higher , more upright settings. When she’s bigger we might also add the toy bar for some extra entertainment.
One of my favourite features is that the fabric is machine washable and can be removed from the frame really easily. This has already come in handy on a few occasions as Margot is quite a sicky baby!
It’s such lovely, soft, high quality fabric and I love that it comes in so many colours and varieties but this new leopard one is definitely my favourite!
The bouncer folds fully flat with one lever so is really easy to store out the way when it’s not in use / take with you on the go (for when we are allowed to go places again!) Also, it is equally as straightforward to set it up one handed while holding the baby!
It works with the baby’s own movements causing the bouncing / rocking. Obviously at this age there isn’t a lot of that going on but it’s very easy to do with your foot or a willing (gentle!) older sibling. Margot loves it and is so chilled in it that she even starts to fall asleep sometimes. It’s great as she gets a bit bigger to have somewhere to put her down that she isn’t lying flat and can look around.
Overall I’d say this is a must! Especially with second / subsequent babies if you’re already running around toddlers. We’ve tried other bouncers but find this the most attractive and easy to use!

The BabyBjorn bouncer is a staple item in the baby world, everyone who has a child or is about to have a baby knows about this bouncer and that just proves how brilliant the item is. When I found out that Baby Bjorn were releasing a leopard print range I was over the moon and then when I found out I had been chosen by Natural baby shower to review this item I was ecstatic!
Leopard print is my thing, I wear it, I dress my children in it, I even have leopard print bedding! So as you can imagine this bouncer fits right in with the interior of my home and in this day and age that is a big factor in buying baby products, long gone are the days of the eye soaring multi coloured baby items.
Upon receiving the product my first thought was light the packaging was, it had a handle to carry the box and was extremely easy to open. Once the box was open you see the gorgeous leopard print straight away and came with a product manual which is clear and simple to understand.
This bouncer is hands how the most simple baby product to set up, you simply move the positioner to your desired position there are 4 options 3 height choices depending on your child’s weight ( this bouncer is suitable up to 2 years old !!) and then the transport mode, which is perfect for traveling as it lays flat and doesn’t take up much space.
This bouncer is extremely lightweight so Is perfect to move from one room to another meaning you can carry your baby and bouncer at the same time which is perfect as most products like this are very bulky and heavy.
I can not fault this product whatsoever it is simply a fantastic product for both baby and parent. Some people may be put off that the item is not electric as a lot of items like this on the market are but that is definitely not an issue for us. Whilst your baby is still small you simply bounce the chair with your feet and then once baby gets bigger they will begin to bounce themselves in the chair. As you can see Sidney absolutely loves being bounced in his!
After having this item a week now I can safely say we could not live without this product and it has now taken place of our original baby chair. I can now see why the Baby Bjorn Bouncer Bliss is loved by so many and now that it comes in leopard print it makes it even more desirable I would recommend this item to every expecting parent.

Our delivery arrived in a huge box with a carry handle and padding inside to keep it protected. I immediately noticed how light it was even with all the packaging. The bouncer was in one piece meaning no assembly and meaning we could start using it straight away!
The beautiful yet subtle animal print gives the bouncer a fun look whilst still fitting into the aesthetic of our home. The fabric is a mesh style making it lightweight and breathable. This can be easily removed and is all machine washable which is perfect. The material is surprisingly strong and the bouncer feels sturdy considering how compact it is.
The bouncer can be used from new-born up to age 2 which I love. It’s good to know we will be able to get plenty of use out of it especially with the three different seating positions. We are already able to make use of all 3 options which is super handy. Since the bouncer is so lightweight I can easily move it around the house and lay it in the position that suits at the time. It would also fit easily into the car if we needed it on the go!
It can be easily folded completely flat making it perfect for storing behind the sofa or another small space. The three recline positions are also perfect for daytime naps and playtime. These can be easily changed using the leaver underneath the seat. When in the upright position our freestanding wooden A frame toy bar fits right over the top and in perfect reach which we love. It is also perfect in the upright position for our nosey little lady who likes to be able to see what is going on around her and watch her brother and sister play.
The bouncer gives me the perfect place to put our baby girl whilst getting ready in the morning. She can be sat next to me on the floor and within my reach and she loves being able to watch what I am doing which keeps us both happy! The price point may put some mums off but I would say it is worth every penny for the ease of use, versatility and the fact it can be used until the age of 2 which I think makes it stand out from other products on the market.
I have always heard amazing reports about the BabyBjorn bouncers but never really thought it was something I needed. Now having used it, it has become one of those products I couldn’t be without. Having a safe place to put our baby girl which is also fun and stimulating for her is invaluable.

The BabyBjorn Bliss looks like one of the simplest baby bouncers I have seen and used but looks can be deceiving as this is one of the best bouncers I have had the chance to use. The Bliss proves that you don't need to have a busy bouncer with sounds or toy bars in order to be a great bouncer.
The Bliss arrived well packaged, in a nice sleek box, upon opening the box I was impressed with how the item was packaged and how little unnecessary packaging there was. I was shocked at how simple it was to put together, no fiddly bits and not batteries needed which meant we could start using it within 5 minutes of opening the box.
My youngest has been using the Bliss for the past few weeks and she has settled in it quicker than she ever has in her other bouncer and she seems to have a lot more fun bouncing and smiling away. The design is very unique, very sturdy and also very stylish, it isn't too colourful or too busy and fits perfectly with any room in the house but can also be folded to be stored away or transported.
We have used all the recline settings and now we just have to wait for my little one to get big enough to try this in the other mode. I highly rate this product, it may be a bit more expensive than what I would look to buy on a bouncer but with how well my little one has taken to it I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking at purchasing a bouncer.
So far all we have found is positive things to say, baby settles quickly, loves controlling the bounce herself and is happy in all positions she can currently use and the fact it's foldable is a great feature as ones we have used in the past weren't able to do this and take up too much room, as it can be easily transported we will also be looking to take it on holiday with us.
I cannot think of a single con, at first I thought the price was a little steep but after using the product I could happily say it's easy to justify. The BabyBjorn Bliss definitely has the baby seal of approval!

The BabyBjörn Bouncer Bliss scores high marks in our household! Delivery was super quick from Natural Baby Shower and there was no excess packaging which was nice.
Upon opening the bouncer I instantly loved the colour (Light Grey 3D Jersey) as it matched our decor perfectly! The jersey fabric is super soft which I think is why George loves it so much as the stretchy fabric hugs him into place.
It’s super easy to flat pack and has three recline functions which are great for a growing baby. This bouncer has been super handy for things like having a quick shower and making dinner as it’s super lightweight to move around and stable.
Compared to another bouncer we have this one has given me time to get ready in the mornings as George is happy kicking his legs bouncing away whilst watching baby sensory. I love how easy the seat cover also comes off to throw in the wash too as most others bouncers you can’t do this. Another great feature is the seat has buttons to secure baby instead of the belt so no fiddling around to clip in.
The only downside I would say is the toy bar is an extra cost and for the price tag I would have thought it should be included. Overall I fully recommend the BabyBjörn Bouncer Bliss as it’s super comfy, lightweight and compact design making it easy to transport and don’t think I can live without it now.

My daughter absolutely loves the babybjorn bouncer. She looks so comfortable in it and loves being able to look around at everything from her own little seat.
The different recline settings are really handy because we can tilt her right back when she needs a nap or sit her up for playtime.
We purchased the toy bar for the seat as extra and it is such a lovely addition and at only 8 weeks old she is already enjoying them. I can tell both the seat and the toys will last her for many more months unlike the smaller baby bouncers we had seen elsewhere.
The seat looks stylish in our home so we don’t mind leaving it out but it also folds completely flat and fits under our sofa which is great for when we want to regain our adult space in the evenings!
We couldn’t live without the bouncer now, Harriet is so happy in it and it gives me a chance for a hot cup of tea which has been invaluable these last few weeks! Lockdown means we haven’t been able to leave the house much at all so having beautiful items to help keep our baby happy have been absolutely invaluable. I have already recommended pregnant friends get the babybjorn and would say it is worth every penny!
