Most of the models of sun loungers are small and designed for small babies. However, there are models from birth to 3 years old, since they can withstand up to 18 kg. If you are planning to buy a chaise longue for an older baby, then pay special attention to fasteners and seat belts..
If you want to buy not only a practical, but also an interesting model, then choose sun loungers in bright colors with additional toys and musical accompaniment. Consider all the requirements and features of your baby when buying, and then you will have a multifunctional and bright design for sleeping and relaxing.
Many moms and dads are interested in a vital and important question: when to put a child on a deck chair? Pediatricians insist that babies with fragile bones should not be put in sun loungers. Therefore, the optimal age at which a baby can start spending time in a rocking chair is -1.5 -2 months.
For the smallest children, ordinary models with a motion sickness function are suitable. The question immediately arises: is it possible for a child to sleep in a sun lounger? It is possible and necessary. The design of the children’s device is such that the baby is very comfortable in it, but he will not be able to fall out or get out without assistance. For greater safety, a chaise longue with a child can be placed on a bed or in a cot with bumpers.
For children who can already sit or even stand, models with a swing or highchair function are suitable. These sun loungers are very comfortable and practical..
