I think a glider or rocker is an excellent idea. As far as the other things, you really only need one so you have a safe place to put baby when you need your hands free and can't use the sling. The problem is that some babies love a swing and some hate them, some love a bouncy seat and some hate them. For us, the pack 'n play turned into a huge laundry hamper for clean clothes that I never seemed to have time to fold. And you already have a cradle. The exersaucers aren't useful for months, so don't bother registering for one of those. You want people to buy the things you really need, not things you'll have to store for 6 months or more. Do you have someone who could lend you a swing or bouncy seat until you know if baby likes it? At that point you can send someone to the store to buy one for you before returning the one you borrowed. That way you don't end up with an expensive piece of equipment that takes up a lot of room.
