Moms who use bouncers
 
I got a $50 gc to target so I thought I would buy a bouncer for Aidan's arrival. I have the papasan chair I used for Sophia and plan on using it but wanted a bouncer. I have narrowed it down to 3. Can you tell me your experiences with these three or if there was one you liked better.

Fisher Price Sensory Bouncer

Baby Einstein Discoveries Bouncer

Fisher Price Ocean Wonders



I really like the leap frog one, but it says I can only get it online



Help me girls!!!!

it didnt have the best reviews. But I like the look of it. I think after reading everything on the net, Im gonna go with the Sensory one, but was hoping someone on here would have a review for me.

I don't know anything about the others but we got the Ocean Wonders one at a consignment sale when DJ was about 4 months old and it was a LIFESAVER!!! He was so colicky and high needs...nothing kept him happy for more than 20 minutes at a time but he would play happily in that bouncy seat for an hour! Once he started crawling and cruising, he had no interest in being pinned down at all (not being held, not in the swing, Jumperoo, Exersaucer, nothing...he wanted to be all over the place) but he would still sit and play happily with the fish forever. Eventually he just got too big for it but he still wants to sit in it every time he sees it. That and his "boobies" are the two things that I think are going to cause problems when the new baby arrives... :(

I didn't have THAT Baby Einstein bouncer but I did have a BE one and I reall liked it. It had piano keys on the tray that went across it and 4 different ways you could have it play. It vibrated as well but didn't rock. I got rid of it becuase I wasn't going to have anymore babies....*dumb dumb*

I usually buy them at consignment shops so I have no experience with the ones youl linked, but I wanted to ask why you can't use your gc online? I'm sure if you read the back of the card, it will give instructions for online shopping. Most store gcs can be used that way.

No, I know I can use it online, but I dont want to pay the shipping charges. Im cheap..lol. Plus Im too impatient (even though the baby wont be here for another 40something days)..lol. Dh said we will go look at them in person this weekend while we are on our trip and see what they look like. Thanks for the advice.

I like the FP sensory one!! It's real colorful, so it will simulate the baby's brain! :)

We have the Ocean Wonders! Alex still enjoys it.

The Sensory Bouncer looks neat too!

My dd LOVED the aquarium one. And the one thing I liked about it was that it is not over stimulating.

http://www.target.com/gp/detail.html...sin=B0002ZOI9W I have this and love it. I like that it's also a toddler chair (weight limit 40 lbs) and it's a rocker (that vibrates) so I can rock the baby with my foot while reading or whatnot. It also has a leg that comes out to recline the baby more if he falls asleep.

When Delaney was real small we used this, and it was the only place we could put her down without her panicing. I liked it because it reclined and rocked. Someone gave us a fisher price one for when she was bigger and we never really used it. We had a Bumbo that we used a lot more.

thats the one we have too, and both my my kids use it (5 and 1yo!) the 5yo uses it as a chair and the 1yo rocks himself in it and i use it to strap him and set him by the bath while i take a shower...he used to do the same thing and fall asleep in it and i could recline it when he did...it was the only thing he would sleep in the first couple weeks of life :D

I have the fischer price ocean wonders. My first DD loved it right from the start, my second DD didn't like it until she was about 2 months old, it overstimulated her, now at 5 months old she is sitting up and I'm afraid she'll tip it over so she only really got about 3 months of use out if it.

My daughter LOVED her ocean wonders bouncer. She is to big for it now, but she still likes for me to turn it on and she will sit and watch the fish and listen to the music. I really liked it a lot!
