we use the bouncy and bumbo still. the bouncy we have is made for him to use until he is a toddler when it can turn into a chair. he also sleeps in it during the day most of the time:confused: the bumbo i usually put him in when i make dinner, or i might put him in it outside now that the weather is nicer since he can't sit for too long yet.

A basinett/pack n play/co-sleeper? Just packed ours up last week. He hasn't slept in it at all since 3 months. As soon as I got bed bumpers, I put it up since it was just being used in case he rolled out of the bed.
Swing? Yeah and it's majorly being outgrown. It's only been used at night when all else fails.
Bouncy seat? I don't, but DH does thinking he can bounce DS to sleep like he did when Aiden was a newborn. :rolleyes: I really should just store it away.
Bumbo? Like maybe once in the past two weeks? We never really used it much. Should also just put it away since there's no reason for it in my house.
Play gym? Never owned the typical one. DS still uses the padded playmat though. I have a Geranimals stand that holds toys that DS likes to drag around the house.

A basinett/pack n play/co-sleeper? Nope, we switched to the crib at 6 months.
Swing? Nope, he's too heavy for it and doesnt really like it anyways.
Bouncy seat? Waaaaaay to heavy for the bouncy seat, the thing sinks to the floor if he's in it. LOL!!! Lol
Bumbo? Not really, he can sit on his own plus he can push himself out of it.
Play gym? Sort of, but he rolls away from it mostly.

Our mostly used thing is his exersaucer type thing, well it's not an exersaucer since it hangs, but I cant think of what to call it.

We packed up all of that stuff! The Bumbo was to last to go as I would stick her in it in the shower with me. Now she just splashes around. We packed the co-sleeper away about 2 months ago along with the bouncer and the swing, which like Simon, she was waaaaaaaay to heavy for. The play gym she never really liked and it went away once she started sitting ~ 3 months ago.

A basinett/pack n play/co-sleeper? Never used the basinett...just used the pnp for a nap last week....no co-sleeper used here.
Swing? Occassionally but it is hilarious to see her in it...she prety much swings herself and doubles over looking like she will fall out.
Bouncy seat? Haven't used in months.....
Bumbo? Yes, but she wiggles her way out so it scares me to put her in it anymore.
Play gym? I brought it out the other day and she played around on it but does the same with just being on the carpet with a few toys.

Most of this stuff I won't even have around anymore but with Melissa over w/Marely it makes sense to keep it out. Smile

A basinett/pack n play/co-sleeper? I use the pack-n-play all the time, especially right now since we're on vacation. It's great for traveling, and I like the playpen use to it, especially if I'm at my parents' house or some other place that isn't childproofed. I packed the basinett part up to it awhile ago though, and at home he sleeps in his crib.

Swing? No, he never liked this.

Bouncy seat? No, he doesn't like being stuck in it anymore.

Bumbo? Well, honestly it's only still out b/c my DD likes to sit in it. Lucas never sat in it that much and cries if I put him in b/c again he hates being stuck somewhere.

Play gym? No, he hated this too.

A basinett/pack n play/co-sleeper? - We are just starting to transistion her from her basinett to her crib in her own room... So far so good Smile

Swing? - We still use it, but we are moving things around in our living room and it's just been tossed in our kitchen so it seems to not get much use at the moment...

Bouncy seat? Bought one waaaaaaaaaaaay long ago, but she didn't seem to much care for it, so we took it back.

Bumbo? Yup, tho she's figured out how to get out of it, so I don't really like to use it anymore... been thinking of selling it on Kijiji and looking at getting a chair topper high chair Smile

Play gym? We totally still use it, but really only because we have laminate flooring and its soft for her to sit/roll/flop over on...

A basinett/pack n play/co-sleeper? Yup he is still in the porta cot next to the bed (or lately not in the portacot but in my bed). He will be using it when we travel for awhile yet, especially if I end up staying at Mum's for a week while on training
Swing? Never had one
Bouncy seat? Hubby will put him in sometimes and he still loves it, but loves his walkie more
Bumbo? Never had one
Play gym? Just the mat because I always put a mat under him on the floor especially now as it is cool at night
