Babies love the feeling of being rocked and it's for this very reason why new parents quickly realise a baby rocker is a must-have item. A baby rocker allows parents to comfort their little one without cradling them in their arms the whole time.
A rocking sensation is soothing for your little one and provides them with a comforting feeling of being back in the womb.
The four main types of rocker include:
- Baby rocker and swing
- Baby glider and rocker
- Baby rocker and sleeper
- Baby bouncer and rocker
