When William Lockett III and his wife had their first daughter, Summer, in 1985, they found that there weren't any products on the market that they could use to keep the baby safe and happy when their hands were otherwise occupied. Lockett invented the first Bouncy Seat and named his brand Summer Infant. The company has gone on to innovate products in a number of different categories, including juvenile health, wellness, and safety.
From the company's headquarters in Woonsocket, Rhode Island, Summer Infant creates parenting solutions that specifically target babies aged 0-3. Products are designed and crafted with ingenuity, integrity, and safety in mind, and they are all built to stand the test of time. Teams work closely with pediatricians and child development professionals to ensure that the brand's inventions are as beneficial as possible. Summer Infant products have won several SheKnows Parenting Awards, Babble Best awards, and iParenting Media Awards. In 2011, Summer Infant acquired the innovative Born Free baby feeding brand to further expand its portfolio of high-quality offerings. Summer Infant's products are distributed via major retailers across North America, South America, Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and Australia.

Monitoring products include audio and video baby monitors, many of which are Wi-Fi enabled. Accessories allow parents to ensure that they can keep an eye on little ones from practically anywhere. Products for the nursery are designed to keep babies safe and comfortable. Summer Infant's award-winning SwaddleMe blankets help babies sleep soundly in their cribs without the danger of them rolling on to their stomachs or getting caught in bedding. Other nursery essentials from the brand include bedding sets, blankets, mobiles, stuffed animals, and furniture like cribs and bassinets.
The company's bath items include tubs and bathers for optimal comfort. Once you start toilet training, you can also use Summer Infant portable potties and stepstools. Childproofing the home is integral to maintaining a safe environment, and the brand offers safety gates and bedrails to ensure your tot doesn't end up in dangerous situations. Summer Infant has a longstanding reputation for creating baby seats that keep little ones happily occupied, and it continues to make baby bouncers, swings, support seats, safety seats, highchairs, booster seats, car seats, and strollers that integrate the latest safety advancements.
Some of the best children's brands evolve from needs uncovered by real parents, and Summer Infant is no exception. The company's products address parenting problems that haven't been adequately solved by other manufacturers, and they integrate unique technological innovations to do so. Comfort and safety always come first, and products are thoroughly tested to ensure that their design and function are both top-notch.
