Our Twin Baby + a Big Girl Blog
And with the delivery trifecra of one twin vaginal, one c-section with general anesthesia for twin B, Spencer and Sidney joined us at 35 weeks exactly on June 18.
I couldn't live without our bouncer. We have the fisher price swing that goes multiple directions and my DD hates it. It was a total waste of money for us. If you have any friends with kids, you might wait and see if you can try out their swing with your LO before you buy it.
The bouncer is a lifesaver for us. It is the only way I get a shower, fix something to eat, etc. She also naps in it daily, its the only place she will sleep when not swaddled.
Lux_Diva:f/u so where is the bouncer exactly when you are in the shower?
I don't have my baby yet but I used to watch my niece when she was a baby and I would just put the bouncer on the floor in the bathroom. That way I could peek out and check on her.
Ditto PP on the bouncer and being able to shower. The bouncer and the jumperoo have some "overlap" but you can't put a baby in the jumperoo until he or she is 4 months old (and can hold up head, basically stand up w/ support.) We put the bouncer away @ 6 months when my DD got mobile enough to "flip" herself out of it (even when strapped in- good times!)
If you aren't sure about the bouncer do you have any friends who might be able to loan you one?
We have loaned out our bassinet, swing, bouncer, moses basket, etc. all between babies.
