The Bright Starts Comfort and Harmony Bouncer by maker Biscotti is part of a range of baby comfort products that include baby swings and it is in daily use in our household for our first baby. It is available on Amazon as well as most of the major baby retail outlets.
When you consider the basics of what a baby bouncer does, it is difficult to understand how manufacturers can do thing differently. Biscotti though have something different though and when we compare it to a different brand kept at grandparents, our little bundle certainly prefers the Bright Starts Comfort and Harmony Bouncer to the others.
Features : Bright Starts Bouncer
- It's not a "door bouncer" : As the Bright Starts Bouncer mounts on a frame, it can recline to multiple positions and this allows you to use it from birth. It is also a bouncer that you can take around the house with you; or even out when you are visiting family and friends.
- Sound and Movement comes from a small unit that attaches to the foot of the seat on the Bright Starts Bouncer. This comes with vibration as well as low and high volume melody.
- Booster Pad : For the smallest of babies there is a booster pad for those early weeks. It surrounds your baby in soft comfort as well as restricting their movements to prevent whiplash injuries.
- Built in Harness : The Bright Starts Comfort and Harmony Bouncer comes complete with a harness which allows you to restrain the baby in the seat. This is good to use then the recliner is at its most upright, allowing your baby to see out around the room.
- Soft Toys : Hanging from over the bouncer; a pair of toy offer visual stimulation until your baby is able to reach out and paw them, a bit like a cat with a ball of wool.
My Thoughts : Bright Starts Bouncer
The Bright Starts Comfort and Harmony Bouncer is a great product and I would include it as a gift for a new mother and baby. It was a great benefit to us to have the inner cushion for the bouncer as our baby was just 4lb when the hospital finally let her come home. Melissa quickly found how comfortable it is to snuggle up and fall asleep in it, while that same inner cushion comes out for washing or discarding as needed. It makes a perfect extension to a day crib allowing your baby to sleep in a less enclosed environment and the music and vibration helps to settle a screaming baby to sleep.
The Bright Starts Comfort & Harmony Bouncer comes flat packed, but making it is easy and once built is sturdy enough to give you peace of mind, even if you are adjusting the recline with a baby still in situ. The recline itself is easy to adjust and goes from horizontal to a position that a baby could easily take a feed.
If we had to choose again we would still be buying the Bright Starts Comfort & Harmony Bouncer and other products in the Biscotti Bright Starts range.
