Rocking chair with motor Nuna LEAF wind motor unit
Motor unit for the Leaf

The nuna leaf curv bouncing chair
But what is the difference now? The Nuna LEAF Curv has a contemporary and chic design that fits perfectly in traditional children's rooms or modern living rooms.

Nuna LEAF curv experiences
The experiences with the Nuna LEAF curv bouncer with or without motor are both very positive. What is most striking is the design of the seat. Most seesaw seats do not always look nice and clean. That is the case with the Nuna LEAF. This chair is not suitable in any living room, so if you think it is important that the seat fits into your interior, the LEAF is certainly a good option.
Besides a beautifully sleek design, the chair is also very nice for your baby, but also for the older children. One push against the chair and your child is indeed gently rocked back and forth for a few minutes. So there is a good chance that your little one will fall asleep. In principle, a rocking chair with motor is not even necessary, but fortunately you always have this option at Nuna.
The big advantage of these chairs is that the insert can be removed from the seat so you can wash it out. Very useful if your little baby often gives back some mouths. In addition, the seat is very stable and you can also secure it.
The only drawback, or maybe two disadvantages, are that the seat is not adjustable in height. So you can not put your baby right on. And the second disadvantage is that the Nuna LEAF Curv is slightly more expensive than other seesaw seats. On average, the bouncer costs 179 euros.
Nuna Leaf Review
How long can a baby stay in the Nuna LEAF?
The Nuna LEAF has a good base and lying position and therefore the rocking chair with motor and also without motor is suitable for babies of a few weeks old. According to veiligheid.nl it is not wise to put your baby in a bouncing chair or other chair for too long. Especially when your baby is only a few weeks old, your baby should not lie in it for too long.
Later on, it is not good to leave your baby or child in the chair for hours, because it is not good for the development of the motor and spinal column. Your child is then too long in a forced angle position. Children must be able to move freely, so preferably place your child in the playpen or on a play mat when he or she is awake. The bouncer is useful for your baby to look around or to join you at the table.
There are legally no fixed rules for how long you can use a bouncer with a motor or without. Yet there is the advice to keep your child in a sitting position for no more than 2 hours a day.This applies to the duration in the bouncer, but also for the time that your child is in the pram or car seat. For example, if your child has been sitting in the car for a total of half an hour, then your child may sit for another 1.5 hours in, for example, the Nuna LEAF bouncer.
