As much as my 5 month old would love for me to hold him 24/7, it’s just not humanly possible. For the times I need to put him down, I think there’s nothing better than a well-designed bouncy chair to keep baby upright while giving him a good view of the action. And that’s it. In other words, no bells, no whistles, no motion-activated animal sounds, no batteries–shockingly old school, right?

I’m thrilled to have found the chic and simple Vida
Maclaren, which does nothing more than bounce. It’s a far cry from
our first bouncer which was equipped with flashing lights, obnoxious
colors and annoying sounds–something I thought as a new mom was
necessary but now and fairly convinced overstimulated him. (It also
probably explains his love of Yo Gabba Gabba).
On the contrary, Vida is a modern, clean and simple bouncer with no
frills. What I also love about Vida is that it’s super lightweight,
making it really easy to take from one room to the other whi
squirmy baby in your arms. It comes in three decor-friendly colors, and
the scarlet one matches my grown-up chairs perfectly; no stashing it in
the other room when company comes.
I’ll leave that for the neon bright Exersaucer and wildlife activity
The Vida Bouncer is $50 on shopmaclarenbaby.com.
Congratulations to Laura M! Her baby (and she) will be well rested, thanks to the Vida Bouncer she won from Maclaren.
