Even 9 months in, Frances spends the first 15 minutes after eating in a reclined position. Although she spits up less than she used to, it’s still a threat after each meal. As a result, nothing has gotten quite as much use in our household as Franci’s bouncy seat. She has spent hours sitting in it, on the back porch in the shade, in front of the fireplace, next to me while I type up blog posts.
There are a lot of choices out there for bouncy seats and, to be honest, we hardly ever turned on the music or vibration. Bouncy seats are pretty easy to come by used or borrowed. Still, we’ve loved our Fisher-Price Little SnugaMonkey. It’s soft, easy to wash, gender neutral and the colors don’t make the living room look like a daycare. From the beginning, Frances has loved staring at the dangling monkeys overhead and, more recently, grabbing for them.
