    We want to buy a baby bouncer soon, just wondered which ones you have and your opinion on it? Are the vibrating ones better?

    We had a basic Lindham one but never used it,. Stanley kept banging into the door frame and wasn't bothered, just hung there! :lol:

    My neice loved it though, and would happily bounce away for hours.

    They're such simple fun, I wouldn't bother paying extra for something like a vibrating one, bubs might not like it. Unless someone can vouch for them?

    Just expect the plaster above your doorway to get WRECKED! :lol:

    I think Kazlin meant a bouncy chair :D I used to have the lindam door bouncer for James and he loved it.

    As far as bouncy chairs go I just had a basic one last time but it was really handy. I used to put James in it in the bathroom when I was in the bath. I've been thinking about getting a vibrating one this time but have no experience of them.

    The two items are really easy to confuse cos they get called similar things. With both some babies like them, some don't :D

    the one ive got was paiges and that has vibration on it

    tbh its not as good as I thought it would be, so I wouldnt go out ya way to look for one with vibration, unless you think its ok.

    We've hardly used ours cos the HV scared me - Finn doesn't spend much time by himself just sitting in it - when he's awake he's feeding or being held, nappy changed etc. HV said that they can ruin their posture as they do all their growing while they sleep so they're not to be used as a bed as such, just a toy.

    I have one for Ryan that has the vibrating option but the batteries ran out and I haven't bothered changing them.. he used to kick the vibrating bit anyway so he probly didn't like it that much.
