Swing or Bouncer or both?

Which did you use? I used a swing with my dd but am looking into one of those bouncers for my son, my only concern is with it being so low will it hurt me to bend down that far?

  • I had both -- my kids liked the variety. You can pick up a good, used bouncer at a kids' consignment store like Once Upon A Child. Good Luck!

  • I went with both. Sometimes he prefers one over the other, and there are different toys on each one so he doesn't get bored

  • Both! Or better yet, put them on your registry! I did not have a problem putting DD in her bouncer, in fact that thing was a freaking life saver lol, seriously shes 9 months old and we still use it almost everyday. The swing has been a wonderful help also!

  • My 2 daughters liked the bouncer and my 2 boys like the swing. I think boys are more lazy and want to lay back where girls are more advanced in walking sooner, wanting to bounce.
