Please could you recommend a bouncy chair?

DS is nearly a month old and i'd like to get him a bouncy chair. Does anyone have one that their lo loves?

I have this one and love it:
You can get if from several places - I think Boots and John Lewis have it too.
I wanted a fairly simple one that doesn't vibrate, although I know they get some good reviews too. The toy bar is fab, and can hang other toys on it too - keeps lo amused rather than just sitting there watching me shower in a morning! My son loved it and now his baby sister is getting good use out of it.
It doesn't have a head support and is quite 'upright', but if your lo is already a month old it should be fine - and imo it lasts then til they're older than the ones that really recline.

I would highly recommend a Baby Bjorn Babysitter chair, they're pricier (best price on Amazon) but they last until bubs is 2, and you can get a toy bar and a cosy cover thing to go with it if you want - very simple, three position settings and fit in nicely. xxxxx

I've got a fisher price link-a-do's rocking chair which is brilliant! My lo didn't like his bouncing chair (the cosatto jolly jelly one funnily enough) but I wanted to get one that would last him. This one rocks rather than bounces but its got a vibrate function and a toy bar and it can be used as a toddler chair too. Best buy so far for us!

We have the fisher price baby to toddler rocker - similar to the one plumduff has. It has several different settings and lasts up to the aghe of 2 - has a vibrate too.
My mum got a bouncer for at her house and he really never to took to it at all.

hi everyone, new here but desperate for advice! My son is 1 month old on Tuesday and has been bottle feeding for the past 2 weeks. He has had problems since. He is extremely irritable, I’m sure my Son doesn’t have anytime while awake not crying, he cries ALL the time and I try EVERYTHING with no success. I have been to the hospital and doctors and they are so very unhelpful, they just tell me he has colic and basically I have to deal with it. I am almost certain, and the hospital also said, he has reflux (silent) as he rarely spits up but it is getting far worse and he is becoming more and more irritable, coughing after feeds and in between and starting to refuse feeds, scream, want them, take them and scream again. He has had Carobel from the hospital as they didn’t want to give Gaviscon due to chance of constipation, but it did absolutely nothing for him. He is now simply on infacol but has trouble pooing, which causes him distress, but is very runny. I guess i am I am desperately looking for advice on what to do, as it is increasingly hard with a baby that cries all day and won’t sleep or settle due to milk coming back up. I feel like I’m missing something and not giving him what he needs? HE IS SUCH A HUNGRY BABY! I feed him, change his nappy, cuddle him, sing to him, wind him, put him in swinger, walk round house, car - I am lost! Health visitor has done a referral to dietician however who knows how long this will take! Dad is lactose intolerant. Also, how much does your baby eat, or did eat at 1 month? Mine wants food every 1.5/2 hours! Please help!
