A baby bouncer, also called baby rocker, is a device in which an infant may be securely laid to allow parents or care givers to take some rest or do other tasks. The bouncer will respond to the child’s kicks and movements with up-and-down or side-to-side motion which have calming effect. Some bouncers also come with electricity or battery-operated motor which provide movement at various speeds.
A baby rocker is usually made from sturdy frame, padded seat with restraints and a toy bar to keep the child entertained. Some models have a sound feature which plays soothing music or lullabies. Most baby bouncers are light weight or can be folded down for portability and easy storage.
When shipping, baby bouncers must be properly packed to prevent damage that may render the device useless or unsafe for use. Here are some tips on how to properly pack and ship a baby bouncer.
Fold the bouncer to turn it to its flattest or smallest size possible. Depending on the manufacturer, the bouncer can be folded down by pushing some buttons or loosening some knobs. Once in its flattest or smallest state, wrap the entire bouncer with bubble wrap. Use tape to secure the wrap in place, while making sure that moving parts are secured.
Place the wrapped bouncer inside its original packaging and make sure that it fits snugly and cannot move. Otherwise, fill gaps with pieces of bubble wrap to prevent movement. Then, double box with ample fillers on all sides, top and bottom. Seal and secure outer box with heavy duty packaging tape.
If the original box is not available, use a sturdy cardboard box that can snugly accommodate the bubble wrapped bouncer. Fill any empty space inside the box with packing materials to prevent movement. Double box the package as described above.
Address and label the package and take to the post office or shipping company.
