Bouncers are great, we got my niece the Fischer Price Deluxe Bouncer-My Little Snugapuppy and it was a lifesaver for my Bro and SIL, especially the first few weeks!

SIDS is very often preventable with safe sleep techniques!

One more thing! The place I work has moved from recommending the Boppy as a breastfeeding pillow to using it only as a “positioning/tummy time device” and My Brest Friend pillow is exclusively offered as the breastfeeding pillow.
