Researching and comparing Baby Rockers is a time-consuming task and new parents don’t have the time to trawl through pages and pages of product descriptions and individual reviews. We’ve created a unique comparison guide so you can easily see all the key elements of the best baby rockers the market has to offer. We’ve concentrated this information all in one place, to help you answer the question – Which is the best baby Rocker for you?
What is a Rocker?
A rocker supports a child in a reclined position providing a soothing motion by gently rocking back and forth. There are many different designs but usually a curved base provides the rocking movement. The rocker may have functions such as a toy bar or the ability to play music.
Types of baby Rocker
Whilst there are many different baby rockers available on the market they can essentially be grouped into three different categories, basic rockers, activity rockers and multi-purpose rockers.
A ‘basic rocker’ does what it says on the tin: the baby sits in it and it rocks back and forth.
Although your basic rocker tends to be a simple tubular metal frame covered with a fabric seat (although not always) it does not mean that basic rockers are the lowest cost. For example the Levo Baby Rocker falls into the basic rocker category yet sits at the top end of the price range
Your baby’s development is important and stimulating them can be achieved easily by spending some time in an activity rocker. These baby rockers tend to come equipped with a toy bar as standard. They offer a wide range of stimulating spinning items such as rattles, mirrors and soft toys. Another common feature are the vibrate and music functions, often found in the same battery powered unit. They offer a range of musical melodies and vibrations to either stimulate, or soothe, your baby as required.
The third category of rockers is slightly different, since they not only offer the function of a baby rocker but also dual as something else. A common function found in several multi-purpose rockers on the market is that they will dual as a baby bouncer. However there are many different multi-purpose Rockers that will dual as something else other than a rocker bouncer.
For example the Tiny Love 3-in-1 Rocker Napper is a Chair a Rocker and a Napper all in one.
