I am having a baby in June and definitely want to get some type of contraption to put baby in while I'm in the shower, preparing dinner etc. I am wanting to get something that can be easily transported around the house, or taken to other people's houses and would help to sooth and settle baby if I'm busy doing something else.
I have been looking at baby swings (the ones that rock from side to side and back and forth), baby rockers and baby bouncers and have noticed that a lot of them vibrate and play music also.
Having so many options is making it a bit confusing! I'm wondering if the ones with all of the "bells and whistles" are worth it, or whether baby would be just as happy in one of those rockers where they literally lay in it, and rock it themselves with their own body weight? Or whether babies genuinely do like the rocking / vibrating motion or the lights and music? I know all babies are different so what one may love, another might hate! But I'm just looking for a general consensus on which one is the best option to buy.
