When you come home with a baby for the first time, it’s hard to know where to start. And one of the biggest question is where to put baby down?

Most new parents will confirm that it’s almost impossible to get have time for yourself. Your baby wants to always be with you, be soothed.At first a baby sling or scarf will do the job, but after a few weeks your baby will need a more permanent solution.

That’s what swings, rockers and bouncers are for. You can safely put baby in and get a shower or prepare a meal. The big thing is finding the right swing or rocker that will soothe your baby, and they are not all equal in terms of movement and durability.

We’ve divided our favorite ones into two categories:

Best manual swings and bouncers

The minimalist bouncer chair

BABYBJÖRN Soft Balance Bouncer

The Baby Bjorn bouncer has a high price tag, but for a good reason. The high quality of its fabric is durable enough to last through multiple children. It also folds up extremely well for travel and storage.


The seat reclines into three positions, including an infant recline, older baby/play seating position, and a flat sleeping position.

The simple design of this grey baby bouncer rocker allows for taller heavier babies than most bouncers will allow. It is suitable to use as a chair for children up to 2 years of age.

Be aware that this bouncer does not vibrate or play music as most do, but for minimalistic minded parents, this is the best baby bouncer seat money can buy.

The best baby travel swing

Red Kite Baby Lullaby Swing

This swing by Red Kite ticks all the boxes of what a baby swing is expected to do. Its ability to fold up for travel makes it a great option for taking to grandma’s house.


Be aware that this is one of those products where you seem to get what you pay for though, as customers have complained of music that is too loud, settings that change on their own, and a material that feels cheap.

If you are looking for a super simple swing on a tight budget, you may consider this one. If you are looking for luxury, it is unfortunately not it.

Great long time option

Tiny Love 3-in-1 Rocker Napper

The Tiny 3-in-1 is a rocker, napper, and chair. It is suitable from birth to a maximum of up to 20 lb/9 kg which is typically about 10-15 months of age. That means that this purchase can potential last you about a year longer than a swing.


It offers the comfort and vibration of the average bouncer, as well as the ability to recline into the full safety of a laying down position.

It has a removable and comfortable pad that is easy to wash.


The electronic toy turns 90 degrees vertical to keep it out of the way for getting babe in and out or napping. It also features light, music and hooks for two removable toy panels.

It plays five engaging and four soothing songs.
