The Nuna Leaf Baby Rocker is a stylish rocker from Nuna; the company inspired by Dutch designers. It is lightweight, safe for baby and incredibly easy to assemble. It lets you gently rock baby without the need for batteries or wires – so you can get on with eating dinner or the housework while your baby rocks safely and contently.
The Nuna Leaf comes almost fully assembled in the box so setting it up is incredibly straightforward. All that is required for assembly is to put the leaf-shaped seat onto the base, click into place and job done! Within a few minutes of the product arriving it can be fully set up for your baby to use.
The number one thing that sets this rocker apart from its competitors’ products is the distinctive, revolutionary design. Shaped like a leaf; this rocker was created to reflect the ‘carefree float of a leaf on a breeze’. It is clear that Nuna took a long time to create a design that is not only relaxing for baby, but also stylish and will no doubt fit in with any living space. It comes in two colours (cinder and bisque) which are both subtle, yet relaxing. The insert fabric is organic, soft and light; meaning baby rests on only the best quality fabric.
Whilst Nuna are known for their distinctive designs, they also must be recognised for their practical thinking. The best thing about this product is that it doesn’t require batteries in order to work. This means there are no worries about having the right sized batteries at home or worrying about the batteries leaking. You can simply use this product wherever you take it.
This product has a smooth side-to-side rocking motion that lasts unassisted for over two minutes with a gentle push. This is great for newborns who only need a gentle push every now and then, or for older, wiggly babies who are able to rock themselves.
The Leaf is also versatile – it can be used from birth and has even been endurance-tested up to a weight of 60kg. So it is perfectly safe to use from newborn stage to toddler and beyond.
The entire seat cover is removable by the Velcro on the bottom of the fabric and the organic insert is removable by itself too. This means they can both be easily removed for machine washing.
The Nuna Leaf is also designed to make no noise when in use. This is ideal if you choose to use the Leaf early in the morning or late at night but don’t want to wake the family.
As mentioned above, the Nuna Leaf doesn’t require batteries. It also doesn’t require any wires or plugs to work. This means you can rest easy while baby rocks, without worrying about them (or even pets) playing with any cables.
The Leaf has a three-legged base which ensures stability when rocking, and a motion lock which is ideal for feeding time. It also securely straps baby in with Velcro that separates at ease to take baby out or to remove the seat cover for washing.
The Nuna Leaf Baby Rocker has been endurance tested up to a weight of 60kg.
The product measures H 45 x W 71 x L 72 cm.
Product weight is 5.21 kg
The Nuna Leaf Baby Rocker has received an impressive number of awards since it was released a few years ago. In 2015 alone, it earned a Baby and Nursery Trade Award, a Prima Baby Award and a Mother and Baby Award.
Nuna have created a wide range of products that promote safety and comfort for babies and children. One incredibly useful product for travelling parents is the Nuna Sena Travel Cot. It is sturdy, strong and extremely easy to assemble. We recently reviewed the Sena here. Another well-designed Nuna product is the Rebl i-Size Car Seat. This car seat is well-padded, has ISOFIX anchor points and lasts from birth up to four years of age. It is a worthwhile investment and we also reviewed this product here.
