However accidents can result from people being overly confident of Baby Bouncer safety.

You should thoroughly check the Baby Bouncer before putting your baby into it. Check the bouncer is as it should be, for example that there are no holes in it, that the straps are not frayed, there is nothing that can weaken it, and that your baby can be strapped in securely. If you are not convinced about its safety being up to standard then double check everything again until happy that it is safe.

Have a look around the area that you are going to place the Baby Bouncer in. Having a safe area is as important as ensuring that the bouncer itself is safe. Clear away or move anything that you believe could adversely affect the safety of the Baby Bouncer.

Also any objects that are slightly higher up yet could be grabbed by your baby should be removed. Doors should also be left wide opened yet securely wedged so that the door cannot swing shut when the bouncer is in the doorway.

Baby Bouncers can make your baby look cute so it not surprising that people want to get closer to the bouncer.
