Manual or electric swing/bouncer?

I’ve got a Graco as well, similar to this one: 

The one I have only swings back and forth, no vibrating or side-to-side…but I’m not sure how much it’ll matter though, I think babies can appreciate just about any kind of soothing stimulation if you give them a chance (as I said before, it took a few tries for mine to warm up to it). LO is almost 10 months now and still uses it, so it’ll definitely get its money’s worth.

We had a hand me down manual bouncer that plays music. But we ended up rarely ever using the music. My daughter ended up just liking to sit in it really so she could nap and look at us while we weren’t holding her. I figure maybe for the next one we might get one that moves but if we do not then that’s okay too. This one worked out great for us. 🙂

We originally just had a bouncy seat for my daughter. We didn’t want a swing because they take up too much space. However, my husband ended up at Target at 11pm one night buying multiple swings out of desperation because nothing would make our baby stop crying except swinging her in our arms and our arms were dying. Ha. The swing we ended up keeping got recalled and so now I’m on the market for a new one for the next babe. I definitely recommend a plug in swing!
