Top Baby Bouncers, Swings, and Rockers of 2023


Jump to Section

There are a few products that are going to be "can't live without" baby gear essentials in those first few months. A reliable rocker, bouncer, or swing will be one of them. You'll wonder how you would have ever gotten anything done without your go-to product to keep baby safely entertained.

Now, there are multiple different rockers/bouncers/swings on the market that will do the job, but in this Learning Centre article, we’re breaking down our top choices!


The mamaRoo4 by 4moms is definitely the most “techy” of the bunch. It has 5 different movements and 5 different speeds per movement – giving you 25 options so you’re sure to find something that suits your baby. If they’re feeling a little extra fussy then you can really get it moving!

It also has 4 built-in sounds to choose from, so if your sound machine stays on the bedside table or in the nursery, you don’t have to worry about porting that around from room to room with you! [In case you haven’t figured it out yet, the womb is loud and babies feel comfortable when surrounded by white noise, especially in the “fourth trimester”]. It’s also Bluetooth enabled so you can control and adjust the movements and sounds from your smart device.

It is also worth mentioning, 4moms makes a couple other popular products you may want to check out. The rockaRoo Bouncer (which we will get to next) and the mamaRoo Multi-Motion Swing. To learn more about the Multi-Motion, check out our full review, here.


  • Machine washable fabrics 
  • Toy mobile included to stimulate baby while they rock, bounce or sway 
  • Multiple different movements 
  • Adjustable recline to sit baby more upright as they become more engaged in the world 
  • Built-in sounds 


  • Infant insert to use from birth is sold separately
  • Must be plugged in to use 
  • It’s lightweight, but still quite bulky so not ideal for moving from room to room or packing into the trunk for a getaway 
  • Can only be used for first ~6 months of baby’s life

MamaRoo Multi-Motion Baby Swing



As mentioned above, 4moms also has a popular bouncer that we just had to add to this list! The rockaRoo Bouncer is sleek and modern and comes in a compact size for easy moving. This bouncer comes with parent-favourite features such as the front-to-back gliding motion and adjustable 5 speeds that babies love. The rockaRoo looks great in any space!

As with the original, the seat fabric is comfy for your little one, easy to remove, and machine washable! 4moms knows the little things make a big difference, so the rockaRoo also offers an AUX plug-in to play your own music or sounds and a mobile with reversible toy balls! Great features packed into a compact and super cute design!

Newborn Reversible Insert - Grey/White



The Bouncer Bliss [available in MeshJersey, and Cotton] and Bouncer Balance [available in Soft] by BabyBjörn are awesome little bouncers with a simple, but genius, concept - and the only difference between them is the fabric choice and colour of the frame!

This bouncer requires you to use your hand or foot to bounce baby, but it’s very sensitive to touch and this is not as daunting as it sounds! A simple tap of the toe gets baby easily moving.

Side note: If you open your bouncer before baby is born, don’t be alarmed! The weight of the baby is what allows it to bounce so easily - #Science. Once your baby starts to realize they have control of their limbs, their own kicking will get them moving and is shown to help develop motor skills! This bouncer is SO loved by parents because of how easy it is to move from room to room or pack up for the day – need a shower? Easily bring this little bouncer into the bathroom! Heading to the beach? No outlet necessary for baby to enjoy some bouncing in the shade!

This bouncer can be used from birth to ~2 years in 2 different stages – featuring 3 different recline positions, you can use this bouncer right from birth to 20 lbs in bouncer position, then flip the fabric and use it as a little chair!

For a full in-depth review of the Bouncer Bliss, click here.


  • Lightweight & compact design make it easy to move from room to room and doesn’t take up much space in your living areas
  • Folds flat for easy storage or to transport if you’re heading on a trip or just out for the day! 
  • No batteries or plug necessary to use 
  • Easily removable and machine washable fabrics 


  • Just one movement [up and down] 
  • Until baby has control of their limbs, requires caregiver to be close by for movement to happen 
  • Some families prefer baby closer to eye level vs. on the floor [dog families we’re talking to you] 

Note: Although there are photos circulating social media of the BabyBjörn bouncer being used on tables and counter tops, they make it very clear that the bouncer should be used on the ground only.


Bouncer Bliss - 3D Jersey



Before we begin here, check out our Nuna LEAF vs. Nuna LEAF Grow Swing article – it explains the differences between the LEAF and LEAF Grow swings by Nuna [we know that’s your next Google search]!

The LEAF and LEAF Grow swings are definitely some of the most stylish in the rocker/bouncer world. The stunning design from Nuna makes these a fan favourite, but that’s not all people love about it! This swing moves gently from side to side and will continue movement for ~2 minutes with just one gentle push [that’s enough time to run and pee before baby comes to a halt!] Like the BabyBjörn, this swing doesn’t require batteries or a plug BUT some models do have the option to add the Wind Accessory for continuous movement [more on that in a minute]!

This swing can be used from birth and comes with a cozy infant insert that can be removed for use in toddler mode and “big kid” mode! All fabrics are machine washable.


  • Can be locked into stationary position for feeding or playtime 
  • 3 recline positions – can sway in all 3! 
  • Mesh backing beneath infant insert provides breathability 
  • Can be used to 100+ pounds in 2 different stages – the longevity of this seat can’t be beat! 


  • Cannot fold flat for easy transport – base and seat detach from each other 
  • Wind accessory sold separately so requires a caregiver be close by for continuous movement to occur

LEAF Swing - Twilight






The 2-in-1 Kori Rocker by Maxi-Cosi is an affordable and attractive option for parents who need a comfy, safe place for baby to chill out and rock away in peace!

The Kori has 3 adjustable height positions and a multi-recline seat that easily adapt to provide baby the best seat in the house. The rocker’s ultra-lightweight and minimal design folds and tucks away for easy storage, but it is so sleek that you may just want to keep it out! A comfy newborn inlay is included so you can get your baby rocking right away, and the removable cover is machine washable to keep up with spit up and spills.

Another option that has us swooning from Maxi-Cosi is the Cassia Swing.

This swing gives parents an extra pair of hands with its smart features and functional design. The Cassia is available from birth to 20 lbs. Its luxurious finishes, soft-to-touch fabric, and two recline positions add extra comfort, ensuring baby is as relaxed as possible.

The smart technology on this swing is out of this world. Just like you, it instinctively knows when and how to rock your baby — all thanks to the automatic motion detector. The Cassia also provides 360-degree rotation, so you can keep an eye on baby from every angle.

This swing is super lightweight, at just 10 lbs, making it easy to take it with you on any adventure. Included with the swing are two adorable toys and a cozy newborn inlay providing baby with the utmost support. We also LOVE the stylish aesthetics of the Cassia!
