A bouncer chair is a must-have bit of kit for parents - it both stimulates and entertains your baby while giving you some valuable time hands-free to do household chores, cook, or even just drink a cup of tea while it's still hot.
But with so many options available, what should you choose?
Some feature colourful toys, various motion settings and soothing sounds, whereas others are more simple (and stylish) in their design. The model you buy ultimately depends on your personal taste, as well as how you intend to use a bouncer chair for your baby.
Here are six of the best baby bouncers both you and your baby will love..
BabyBjorn Bliss Bouncer
A brand loved by parents including Joe Wicks, the BabyBjorn Bliss is suitable for babies from birth up to two years, and features an ergonomically-shaped seat to provide support to your baby's back, neck and head. The lightweight seat has three different positions for play, rest and sleep, and folds flat so you can also take it with you when you go away.

Nuna LEAF Grow
With three recline positions, the LEAF Grow is an investment that both you and your little one will love for years to come. A small push will give your baby the feeling of being rocked in your arms for over two minutes, with a gentle side-to-side motion, while the seat can also be locked for feeding or playtime.

Wave Rocker Baby Bouncer Chair
Nap times will be even better with this Wave rocking cradle, which provides soothing motions and a three-position reclining seat, along with four melodies to create a relaxing atmosphere for your baby. A removable toy bar offers post-naptime entertainment, and better still, the seat folds flat and is easy to store away when not in use.

Graco All Ways Soother Swing Horizon
There is much to love about this chair, which not only has ten built-in melodies and five nature sounds, but also 16 calming motions, six swinging gears and two speeds of gentle vibrations. There is also a detachable toy bar with two toys, a multi-recline seat to keep your baby comfortable during rest and play, and a support strap to ensure they are secure at all times. Well worth the investment.
