Review of the best sun loungers for newborns
Currently, there are many assistive devices on the domestic market that make it easier for parents to spend time with young children. For rocking, there are two main types of devices – swings and deck chairs. The latter are more like a portable rocking chair with a back. A distinctive feature is low weight, because not every mom can lift weights. The chaise lounge is designed primarily for the mobility of moving the baby around the house – you can place the chaise lounge in the kitchen, while the mother, meanwhile, will cook dinner, or in the living room while ironing. The kid will sleep sweetly under supervision, or enthusiastically look at hanging toys.
Chaise lounges, depending on the model, can provide rocking both up and down and in time with the movements of the baby, be equipped with an electronic motion sickness mechanism or not have it at all – the so-called manual motion sickness.
