The battle between swinging and bouncing

Infant swings versus baby bouncers




For many parents deciding between what they actually need and what they simply want be a challenge, especially when it comes to products for their baby. One great example of this can be seen when comparing an infant swing to an infant bouncer.

The truth is, there is absolutely no need to purchase both of these products.  They have a limited lifespan of usefulness and they serve the same purpose. But with a little research, you can easily decide which one make more sense for your home, your needs, and your infant.

The Case for the Infant Swing


Pros: Often have more features than baby bouncers, great for infants who are soothed by the motion of a rocking chair, larger and more stable than a traditional baby bouncer

Cons: More expensive than baby bouncers, not as portable, take up more space

The Case for the Baby Bouncer:




Pros: Portability - take it with you on short trips or even just to go outside, less expensive than baby swings, smaller than a swing so easier to fit into apartments

Cons: Can have stability concerns because it is smaller and lighter, not as many features on the inexpensive models, limited range of motion

More factors to consider


Both baby bouncers and infant swings have height, weight, and sometimes even age restrictions. They are generally not meant for use by babies who are too young to support their own head, so there is a limited window of time when a baby can use these products. If you still are not sure which one is right for your baby, talk to other moms to see if you can try their swing or bouncer. If your infant loves their swing or bouncer, you will have a clear indication of which will work best.

  145. Обычно даже если страховка в провинции не с первого дня, все, что касается беременности и родов оплачивается из казны сразу после приезда.Чтобы найти инфу по конкретной провинции, погуглите на манер название провинции health inrnsauce'.Вот что написано для ВС:EligibilityTo qualify for Medical Services Plan (MSP) coverage, you must be a resident of B.C. A resident is a person who:is a citizen or permanent resident (landed immigrant) of Canada;makes her or his home in British Columbia; andis physically present in British Columbia at least six months in a calendar year.Certain other persons, such as some holders of study and/or work permits, or working permits on working holiday programs, which are issued under the federal Immigration and Refugee Protection Act are deemed to be residents.То есть, по рабочей визе страховка точно такая же.

  146. So glad to hear someone else thikns as I do!! And I read some other comments...our baby boy is 14 months and we have only gone our once without him--I just missed and worried about him the whole time, totally wasn't worth it! People are always asking us if we have date night--first of all we are homebodies who love each other and would rather watch a movie together at home than go out...second of all, I cannot stand to be away from baby Lincoln for even the amount of time he sleeps at night, so we take him with us. Plus I really don't trust anyone but my parents to watch him...and they live six hours away...so I am sooo with you! Sorry that was a novel...just something I feel strongly about I guess!--Sandywww.AsToldByMommy.blogspot.com
