Getting a baby to sleep can be one of the most frustrating things a parent must endure. Most notable is the endless bouncing to soothe them. Thus, cue my KidsII InGenuity Automatic Bouncer review.

I don’t know how many times I have had to use a ball to bounce my kids to sleep. As both arms are used to bounce away, I imagine what my hands could be doing: the laundry needs to be folded, a pile of email needs to be read, and the dishes need to be washed.

Bouncers seem to be a solution to our sleep deprivation woes, but most require the baby to kick for the bouncing to ensue. This is a great feature for motor development and cause & effect learning, but in the early days, we need more (especially more sleep.) Other bouncers offer a vibrating feature, but I don’t know many parents who can vibrate their babies to sleep. How is that a natural feature?

Having a bouncer that simulates the bouncing we do with great color choices (at Target as shown, or at other retailers in other patterns), at affordable price point ($49.99), with soothing & adjustable music, a movable play arch, and proper incline, it is no wonder I wanted to write and create TWO videos about the Kids II InGenuity Automatic Bouncer!
