Bouncers are awesome. You might not use them right away by they are an awesome little life hack, take it into the bathroom with you and you can shower and keep an eye on bubs if they're not asleep. Ditto carriers, they're great, which one depends mostly on personal preference... I've managed to go through all of them: hugabub, ergo, baby bjorn, sling.
In the end for me I couldn't get the hang of the hugabub, used the ergo a little bit bubba doesn't like it as much, couldn't get him in a sling at all- I waited too long so he just resisted it, and despite worrying about the hip thing, I ended up liking the baby bjorn the best because it's so quick to get on and off.
Just watch your back and your wrists - if it starts to hurt talk to your doc and try to lift/carry ergonomically!
