Lindam Door Bouncer
Advantages: Baby can have fun while watching you in whichever room you want to put it
Disadvantages: Sideway movement not good.
This was one of my favourite purchases for my daughter and one of hers too. They cost approximately £25 from new at stores like Mothercare Tesco and Argos. I picked mine up at a sale for £2.
Now maybe I was a bit dim that I never got my son one as a baby and initially said i couldn't get my daughter one but I was under the silly impression that it was fixed to a doorway and seeing as all doorways were in use it would be in the way, it was only when I saw it properly that realised that was not the case.
It can be taken now and moved at any time as it has two metal arms with rubber stops on the end that grip over the door frame very firmly. The only way it could fall down is if you prise the arms apart, it can't slip down as the door ledge is there.
The baby sits comfortable and secure in the seat which is a wrap round Velcro fastening style. Also a safety clip like you have on buggies.
The guidelines state these are suitable from 3 to 15 months old or once they can hold their heads up themselves. You can adjust the straps for the height so as they get bigger it can still be the same level from the floor, they need their feet just touching the floor so they can push themselves to bounce.
Now my daughter loved hers and I found it very handy to put on the kitchen doorway so she could watch what I was up to as our previous kitchen was too small to fit in highchair. She would bounce and manage to twist herself round in it and loved to giggle away in it. I was not able to get a good picture of her in it as they were blurry from her constant moving.
The seat is machine washable and came undone easily to allow me to do so.
Maximum weight of baby should be no more then 26lb, I'd not risk putting a baby much more then 20lb in it myself really as it is the strength of door frame to consider.
I have one issue with this bouncer that caused a worry and that was on occasions she would manage to go side ways inside of up and down and bumped her head on door frame.
Actually two issues, just remembered how tricky it could be trying to put her into it. trying to get the legs into right place while holding her then doing it up to make her secure. The person I got it from did say the best way to put them in was lay it down first but I found you then had a hanging baby while you had to move it into the position of door way and didn't feel comfortable doing it that way. We often found it so much easier having two of us to put her in so one could guides her legs into place.
Please comment if you found this tricky or had a better way to put them into it...
Summary: A good buy and would be worth paying full price for.
