A good old-fashioned rocking calms down even the fussiest of babies.

That’s why we’re loving BABYBJÖRN‘s new Babysitter Balance Organic ($166), which was released last fall.

Made with organic cotton, this super cool bouncer doesn’t run on batteries — it’s powered by your baby’s natural motion. Anything from a kick to a head bob will get it moving.

Safe for tots from 8 to 29 lbs., it also features three comfy positions (play, rest and sleep).

And don’t worry about milk or juice stains. The fabric’s reversible and machine washable. You can even buy a plush terrycloth cover for added protection.

It also folds down nicely for travel or storage.

Want to ramp up the fun? Check out the colorful wooden toy bar ($40). It’s guaranteed to keep your baby engaged for hours.
