A small seat for young infants, a baby bouncer responds to their movements with a gentle, spring-like up and down motion. Since these lightweight seats are easy to move from room to room, parents can carry them along to keep their child in sight while doing chores around the house.
Bouncers come in simple models that respond to a baby's kicks and give them the movement that they love, or battery-operated types that vibrate or simulate a car ride. Many types have toys attached, and some even play music. Though ideal for any baby that loves constant movement, most baby bouncers should only see use until a child learns to sit up, a feat most children can start doing around six months of age.
