Food Snob St. Louis with a review for a great item from Combi for your Christmas list.
If you are a first time, or even a second or third time parent, you know that choosing baby gear can be incredibly overwhelming. What are the must-haves? What if your baby hates the swing, but loves a bouncer? Which features are the best and why? Even though we just had our second child, I still get frozen with indecision in the aisles at big box baby stores. It is such a relief when we find a product we, and our kids, love. When we opened and put together the Combi Pod Bouncer, we both breathed a huge sigh of relief for many reasons.
First of all is the profile and look of this bouncer. I love that it looks just like a lady bug, and the bright colors fit in perfectly in our play room. Another huge plus is that if it is in our living room, it's light, easy to move and doesn't take up a lot of room.
Of course, the big feature of any bouncer is its soothing vibration. The Combi does a great job of soothing our baby with its vibration mode, which is also quiet (another important feature). Additionally, it has a music mode that plays preloaded melodies, or you can plug in your own MP3 player to play your own music.
Other important things to note about this bouncer are the 3-point safety harness, 2 positions of recline on the seat, a head pillow that can be removed, slip resistant feet and a storage pouch. Oh, and it took 5 minutes to put together.
As you can see, big sister is a fan as well.
