A friend of mine told me she got this as a gift as a fluke, and it became her favorite thing! When I had my baby, this became a life-saver! I could take it on the couch, on the bed, any room I was in. My baby was always by my side, but safe and comfortable, too. I buy this for all of my friends and family when they have a baby. I haven't heard anything but gratitude from anyone!! Xoxo
The Newborn Lounger is a great product! There was no set up involved before using it, we took it out of the package and it was ready to go. It is shaped to hold the baby in the center of the lounger and props the baby up at enough of an angle to be able to look around. The filling inside the lounger is very soft and comfortable. It is firm enough to hold the baby in place and not let her sink down or roll off but it is soft enough that the baby sits comfortably and can wiggle her arms and legs.
The day we got our lounger, my daughter spit up on it. I was concerned about cleaning the pillow and so I grabbed the packaging to see what to do. It instructed me to simply wipe it clean. Very easy to do!
My daughter was able to use it until she was about 4 or 5 months old. At that age she was too long to sit in the center comfortably and would strain to lift her head higher.
I have used other Boppy products in the past and I was just as impressed this time with the good quality of the product and the ease of use.
This is a great product from Boppy for a new baby. The newborn lounger is very portable and has a handle for easy moving (even when carrying a baby). It is much easier to move to another floor in the house or pack up for traveling than a bulky swing or bouncer. It gives my little guy a comfortable spot for to rest when I can't hold him and I like that it props him up so he can look around and I can interact with him at a different level than just on the floor. It's made from a very soft material that wipes up well after spit cups and an adorable pattern that is gender neutral so I can reuse in the future. I also have the original boppy nursing pillow and do like the fact that I can remove the cover on that to wash when needed. After short term use the lounger does wipe clean nicely, but wondering about after long term use how easily it will be to wash. Only other downside is I won't be able to use it long with a quickly growing little guy (the package recommends 0-4 months or 16lbs).
