4moms mamaRoo
Nothing beats being in your arms, but the mamaRoo comes pretty close, thanks to its five different speeds and five different motions -- all patterned after the ways you actually move when comforting your babe. Plus, the seat that fully reclines (so can baby can take a catnap) and there's an mp3 hookup. ($199.99 at

Chicco I-feel Rocker
Bring home a clunky, plastic bouncer? You'd sooner trade in your Le Corbusier. For you, hip mama, there's the I-feel Rocker from Chicco, which gets its midcentury vibe from a sleek rocking base and arched stand. For your baby, there's a detachable soft rattle, pre-recorded songs and nature sounds and a colorful light display. ($120 at

Bloom Coco Go Lounger
Don't let its simple appearance fool you -- Bloom's Coco Go is equipped with lots of handy features that will keep baby (and thus you) happy. Among our faves: three recline positions so she can sit, bounce, or rock; an extra-safe five-point harness; and an easy fold for traveling. ($200 at

Babyhome Onfour Babysitter Bouncer
You're a mama on the move, so your bouncer should be equally as light-footed. That's a big reason we're such fans of Babyhome's Onfour -- its lightweight aluminum frame, front wheels and included travel bag make relocating this bouncer a breeze. ($130 at

Zooper Rocker
This just may be the chair your baby never wants to get out of, thanks to a five-position seat, an adjustable footrest that keeps her legs from dangling and, of course, that whole soothing rocking thing. Heck, do they make one in our size? ($79 at

Why buy a bouncy seat and a swing when one product can do both? With six swing speeds, three recline positions, five-point harness and detachable seat that converts to a floor bouncer, this 2-in-1 is a super multi-tasker. (Just like you!) ($130,
