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!!!!

Re: Moms who use bouncers

Re: Moms who use bouncers

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*

Re: Moms who use bouncers

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.

Re: Moms who use bouncers

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!
