UPDATE: this giveaway is closed.

Congrats to Kris (kandjlading@…)! Look for an email from me today!


For those of you who have been following my blog for a while, you’re probably not surprised that I’m over-the-moon excited to share another BabyBjörn giveaway today!

I’ve been loving, using, and freely promoting many of the BabyBjörn products for the last couple of years… and believe it or not, I first fell in love with the BabyBjörn brand BEFORE I had any children of my own. I was at a blogging trip to Chicago, and as one of the only bloggers without children, I just listened intently while the other moms chatted about their favorite baby gear. The name BabyBjörn kept popping up, so I Googled it when I got home.

For a variety of reasons (all mentioned below), I instantly fell in love with their Bouncer Balance Soft (formerly called the BabySitter Balance). I KNEW I wanted one for my baby — someday down the road.

Ironically enough, although I didn’t know it at the time, I was actually pregnant on that blogging trip — and a few months later, I excitedly purchased my very own BabyBjörn Balance (here’s the link to the exact one we have).

Since the day Nora was born, in November of 2011, we have used our bouncer EVERY SINGLE DAY — sometimes for hours and hours a day (no, I’m not exaggerating!)

We take the bouncer almost everywhere we go — on vacation, to friends’ houses, outside when we’re playing with Nora, at the dinner table, etc. We’ve even thought about bringing it to our church nursery since they don’t have a bounce seat (we decided that was a little much though, so we haven’t done it yet!)

We had a couple months where Nora and Simon “fought” over the use of the chair — and then Nora finally decided she was too big and relinquished full rights to Simon :)

And yes, almost all the photos of Simon in the bouncer are blurry because he’s bouncing like crazy (see video below)

My 5 Favorite BabyBjörn Features:

1. It folds completely flat and takes up almost no space — very abnormal for baby gear!

2. It’s fully washable – just slide the fabric off, wash, dry, slide back on!

3. It has a very long useful “life” — from day 1 all the way through 2 or 3 years old.

4. It’s “baby operated” — a.k.a. no batteries to replace, no cord to trip over, nothing to break, no motor to die, and no parent’s foot required.

5. My babies LOVE it! You know how frugal I am AND how much I hate clutter. So for me to splurge on a pricier piece of baby gear, it has to be worth it. This bouncer seat is worth every penny and more based on the amount of sanity it has saved me over the past (almost) 3 years!

This might be a bold statement, but I can confidently say that our BabyBjörn bouncer is one of the best, if not THE best, piece of baby gear we’ve ever purchased. So yeah, I’m just a teeny, tiny, little bit excited that one of you has the opportunity to win one today!!!!

    I’m sure I would have loved this when my kiddos were little but, holy cow, $250 for a baby bouncer??? It ought to change diapers and prepare bottles for that price! :-)

    I know — it’s crazy expensive! I got mine for $40 on Craigslist, but until you actually use it with babies and toddlers, there’s just no way you can possibly see how awesome this bouncer is. I would probably be in a mental institution right now if we didn’t have this bouncer for Nora (seriously). It is worth every penny of the full price… (even for frugal me)!

    Oh I am SO excited about this giveaway!!! I have been wanting to get it for my 5 month old daughter, but it’s out of our budget and I’ve yet to come across it on craigslist. Thanks for the opportunity to win it!

    I love reading your baby gear posts! Now that we are due with baby 3 in February (shocker!!) and it’s been almost 13 years since I’ve had a baby at home, it’s nice to see reviews on all the new gear!

    My daughter is expecting her first baby and my first GRANDbaby in January. I’d be thrilled to give this to her for a baby gift! If I don’t win it here, I guess I’ll have to be on the lookout for one on Craigslist or consider it as a Christmas gift for her as it sounds like a ‘must have’ for all new parents.

    Baby #2 due in December so I’m hoping I win!! But since I need almost nothing with this baby I may splurge on it even if I don’t win; mostly due to your recommendation. I think I’d would normally pass this by because of the price. Did you ever use any sort of swing? That’s the other thing we don’t have and really don’t want one because of the space they take up. Maybe the bouncer seat would serve the same purpose.

    Andrea Reply:

    Hi Avia,
    We’ve actually tried 2 different swings with each kid and neither one liked any of them. They were also never fans of the Bumbo seat, the jumparoos, or really anything else except the bouncer. You should definiteily keep an eye out on Craigslist — you never know when a great deal might pop up!

    Thank you so much for the review and the giveaway! I have been looking for the perfect bouncy chair for my 4 month old daughter as she doesn’t like either of the swings we were gifted with. She is very independent and wants to see everything, and a swing doesn’t always allow her to do that. Even if I don’t win the raffle, I think that I will purchase this piece anyways. I very much trust your opinions on products–your blog is usually the first place I go to for home and baby related product reviews and ideas!

    Thanks Sonia! We don’t have a lot of baby gear, but this bouncer has saved my sanity MANY times!

    This bouncer would be so neat for my 9 week old!

    And I LOVE your posts about organization and purging! I think we are kindred spirits :-)

    How exciting! I have a 4 month old and I can just imagine her bouncing in this. I didn’t realize that all of their items folded flat! Having a smaller house and baby things seem to be everywhere, what a lovely idea!

    Just want to thank you for organizing this, and especially for your reviews. My baby boy is less than 2 weeks older than Simon so it’s soooo helpful to hear what another mama is finding helpful! I’ve really enjoyed your blog over the last few years… Looking forward to more great posts!

    hey Andrea–
    did you ever let either baby sleep long stretches in this?? I could definitely see babies with reflux sleeping really well in this. Like not just naps, but extended (5+) hours of sleep?

    Thanks!

    [Reply]

    Andrea Reply:

    actually no, Katie… I guess I never thought about this. We’ve let them sleep in their carseat but never in the bouncer. I honestly think it might actually be too bouncy that it could wake them up if they flinched. Nora never slept in it, but Simon has slept for short period in it. However, if it works for acid reflux, I’d give it a try.

    Hi Andrea! I also love the baby bjorn bouncer! I found mine on craigslist and happily shelled over $90 for the seat as it was in PERFECT condition! This is baby #3 sand I have no idea why I had never heard of this especially considering I rave about my baby bjorn travel bed all day long which is happily on baby #3 being used everyday! (We don’t have an actual crib, as I like to keep the babes next to the bed until they are 2 b/c nursing.) I have told my husband multiple times that this has been one of my BEST baby purchases since my bub was born 4 months ago. My guy does nap in it, but not for more than an hour or so. Just seconding everything g you said!

    Yay — glad to hear you love the bouncer too! thanks for sharing (and so sweet that your little one naps in it!)

    I love your blog and eagerly look forward to reading it! Thanks for a great job! I love these seats and would love to give it as a gift to my sister in law who is expecting her fifth baby. :)

    Hey Andrea

    The BabyBjorn bouncer is definitely worth the money because it is a really high quality product. But because of that I suggest you freely buy a second-hand bouncer like Aimee. My BabyBjorn Bouncer is over 10 years old and has “serviced :)” over 5 kids and still looks amazing and other than a slight tear due to improper handling doesn’t have a single problem. Btw, our bouncer was a used gift and the person that gave it to us will always have a special place inside my heart because of it :D

    Also and possibly even more importantly… not every kid loves it. My first born refused to be put into it while my second child loves it. She can spend nearly 2 hours per day in it (not at once ofcourse :D). So please, try it out first… or slowly and gradually make your kid like it.

    Like your site, will be stopping by ;)
