Last week Momtrends hosted an intimate breakfast with Baby Bjorn and some NYC-area bloggers. This casual meeting was a great way to connect bloggers with Baby Bjorn to learn more about the iconic company and some of their new products and added features.
First up was their new Bouncer Balance Soft. Available in May 2013, Baby Bjorn launched their first bouncer in 1961 (this was also the first product that Baby Bjorn launched) - making it a classic that millions of children have played in and rocked in for years. We have the older version from 2008 that both of my daughters have used, and I have been amazed by its unique features that can soothe and calm a baby without the use of any batteries, loud noises or music that other baby seats are known for. Also, I can personally attest to this product that helped me take a showers - which as a new mom was a luxury - where I placed my daughter in the bouncer with no fussiness. The new model is even softer and more modern thanks to the use of soft fabrics, round forms and a supportive design to create the feeling of a snug nest for your baby. The newer bouncer also has a safety harness and its ergonomic design gives a baby proper support from the newborn stages until they are 29 pounds. Another benefit is that the bouncer encourages natural bouncing that helps to develop motor skills and balance as well as to help with head and back support. I also love that it is SO easy to fold up that goes completely flat, which is incredible for travel and storage.
Baby Bjorn also spoke of their carriers and highlighted the many features from the Miracle Carrier. The difference with this carrier is that it allows to you keep your baby close when they are a newborn, and allows for the adjustment of the straps - and movement of the baby - when they get older. This is a great way for both parents to participate in baby wearing as this carrier features a waist belt that transfers the weight of your baby to your hips to relieve your back and shoulders. Another bonus of the carrier is that it is made of soft fabrics and it has no seams so it won't affect or chafe your babys sensitive skin.
Baby Bjorn also offers great products to make life easier in the home with kitchen, bathroom and sleep essentials. Some of our favorites are the Soft Bib, Eat and Play Smock, Safe Step, Smart Potty and the new Cradle.
An iconic brand, Baby Bjorn is always on the forefront to designing products that are effective, safe and comfortable that both you and your baby will love.
