Are you getting a swing and a bouncer?

I already have a bouncer but I found a really cool swing I want on-line. Friends have told me I"ll want a swing. Did you get both?

  • with my son i had both we used both. But it its a spendy swing and you dont plan on having more children id say buy a used one they dont stay in them very long they out grow them fast. I know you think its cool but if you get a baby who doesnt like the swing and some babies dont you will have waisted a ton of money for it to just sit there.

  • i would get both if i were you. my son loved the bouncer and hated the swing so you never know which he will want to be in!

  • BOTH definately! trust me, you'll want both. baby might like one and not the other, or baby will love both.

  • I had both with my son... I used the bouncer the total of 3 times (and it was on the counter while I cooked) he hated it. The swing was nice... didn't use it past 6 months though. I am not sure if I will use a swing this time around... but I know I won't use a bouncer. I prefer a sling over a chair.

  • i used both my son loved the swings to fall asleep in for naps and the bouncer was nice to set him in while i showerd so i could still have him in the same room. get an electric swing or you will go poor replacing the battries. i learned that the hard way i will be getting a new eletric swing for this baby.
