Consider me registry overwhelmed. Lucie's List is helping a lot, as are these threads. My current quandary is whether I truly need a swing. I registered for the rock and play and plan on registering for a pack and play with a removable bouncer seat. I don't have a ton of space and am kind of a minimalist. Would you consider a swing a necessity?

Sadly it depends on the child. DS loved his swing, DD1 hated it and I sold it early on.
DD2 that was born in May uses her swing every single day for naps, she wont nap anywhere else.
We dont have a bouncer, she prefers to hang out in her Sit Me Up chair or the floor. We used the rock n play till she was about 3.5 mos and then she learned to roll and it became a hazard even strapped in.
Depends on the kid. DS loved his bouncer (he'd still use it if he weren't too heavy, but was not a fan of the swing. We used it to get a tired baby to take a nap when we were tired of rocking or holding. The rock and play would probably do the same job.
Absolutely not essential. We never had one for DD1. Maybe we would have used one if we had one, but we never found out.
We had one of those bouncer seats - rushed out and bought one when she was obviously sick of lying down but wasn't ready to sit on her own. That was great, and we used it a lot (for a short period of time).
FYI pack 'n play is also a term used for a prosthetic penis. Did not know that before I did a Google image search...

I would register for one. If someone buys it for you or you get it for yourself, you can set it up and if LO hates it, you can disassemble and return to the store for credit. They'll probably sell it as an "open box" item.
