What’s the Difference Between a Bouncer and a Swing?
Bouncer is usually lightweight and low to the ground. It’s powered by baby’s own movements or by giving it a quick nudge with your hand or foot. Bouncers tend to be fairly compact—some even fold flat for easy storage—and range in price but are often quite affordable.
Swings tend to be heavier and larger than bouncers and are mechanically powered. A swing rocks your baby back and forth, side to side or a combination of both in some cases. Many have other features like sounds and vibrations. Swings range from affordable to fairly pricey.
