    From what I've heard floating around here.. It completely depends on the baby. Some women even borrow one from a friend if it's available to see if their baby likes it before buying one or the other.

      I have both and he likes both. The bouncer comes in handy because it's light-weight so you can move it easier. I sit him in the bathroom in it while I shower. It gave me more peace of mind then not being able to see him. He also enjoys his swing, and it usually calms him when he is fussy and rocking him while holding him can cause back pain. I have a swing that is low to the ground and is easily transferable. I've heard of some babies liking the swing and not the bouncer and vise versa. They have ones now that is a bouncer and rocker and can switch to either and ones that are 3-in-1's (bouncer, rocker, and swing) and you just take off parts or add to.

      I would not recommend Cosco brand swings though.

          Adrianna hated both. Andrew loved his bouncer but hated the swing. Eva loved the swing but hated the bouncer . Grace hates the swing but loves the bouncer...that I gave to my mom.... So.... no bouncer here lol. They both can be invaluable in my opinion. I don't think I could choose again. :)

            Both! But if you can only chose one, definitely the swing.

              In my experience, a swing. We had a bouncer off the bat, but we didn't get a swing until about a month in. The bouncer was fine for her to sit in, but the swing actually put her to sleep, when she'd really only sleep in someone's arms until that point. When I think of all of the sleep I missed out on...

              So that's my two cents. :)

                A bouncer. You can use it longer!
