K Ladies I need your opinions.

We have the following baby gear

3 in 1 Exersaucer (birth to 2 years)

Bouncer

Pack n Play

Do we NEED a swing? I really cant make a decision on this very well...the swings available at Sears are enormous to me and I dont have any other way of getting a swing unless I order it online. We'll probably end up with a Jolly Jumper (much to my dismay but DH thinks they fabu) and I really dont want an object that will only be used for a little while (or be hated by my kid which I obviously wont know until he/she gets here).

How long do babies use swings and are they worth it if I have the bouncer and likely end up with a Jolly Jumper to be used around 4-5 mos??

Thanks ladies for all your thoughts!

I found a great deal on a swing today...the Fisher Price Rainforest swing (regular price 189.99)....a woman was selling it on Kijiji for $75 bucks...only 2 years old and in great shape. Its cute and swings side to side or front to back.

That is a great swing. It's the one that we have. It plugs in or takes batteries.

That's great Ruby! A swing can be sooo useful for naps and stuff when baby is tiny. We never used a bouncer, but the swing was really nice. There's not a whole lot they can do on their own when they're little, I really felt like the swing was one of James' few sources of entertainment, and it let me get things done around the house!
