    Default Recommend me a rocker or bouncer

    Can anyone please recommend a rocker or bouncer that will fit a long baby for as long as possible? Ds isnt even 8 weeks old &;he's already almost too long for the one we have & he wont sleep anywhere else during the day so i urgently need to find something that I can use for the longest possible time

    Not sure if you have one already but instead of a bouncer/rocker we had a small swing (Mamas and Papas starlite swing). We used it for DS everyday from the day he came home from hospital (born at 50cms long) until he could sit on his own. It covered all our bases in one piece. DS was a bit of a chucky baby as he had reflux so we didn't use it in motion often but he would spend most of the day in it each day. It has 3 levels to lay it back for comfort and for sleeping. (You can remove the cover and bar at the front). Hope you find something that works for you! (My sis also swears by the maclaren rockers too).

    If it was me and I was buying for our next I would skip the bouncer and go straight for the automatic swing, our dd loved her swing and it lasted a lot longer.
    we had the fisher price love you zoo swing, it could rock side to side or front to back. Different heights/layback positions and it had a animal mobile under a mirror that our little one just was so entertained and amazed by
    was THE BEST baby product

    We just got a cheapo bright starts one.
    You can't put them in ours once they roll
    4-5 months, but there might be some out there that can be used after 5 months. Our dd rolls in it now and it's dangerous so we are pulling it apart soon.
    Maybe a swing like pp suggested

    Thanks ladies will check them all out! Its good to know that there are some that can be used for a long time - when I looked at the size of some swings & rockers last weekend I was a little worried
