    My daughter liked it however she quickly outgrew it to the point where we didn't feel it was safe for her because she would move while it was swinging and it would slightly tip. Jul 18, 2022

  • Not the most attractive, but it allowed us to put our colicky newborn down and take naps. It has two vibrating intensity settings, six speeds, and sounds/music. Apr 12, 2022

    My baby loves this swing for napping. Love that I can remove the bouncer to the kitchen when cooking so she can watch. The bassinet is perfect for bedtime too. Mar 28, 2022

    We got this used from someone and it broke within a few months of use. Mar 16, 2022

  • My son never really liked using a swing, even tho this is a nice swing. Feb 21, 2022

  • We use this at the sitters house. Its so comfy and baby always falls alseep quickly when he's in it Jan 31, 2022

  • My daughter loved this glider ... i like this one it has 3 different modes and has nice music natural and soft music has vibration also she loved it !! You can take out the seat to wash also !! Jan 28, 2022

  • My baby loved it. You can change the speed and lay them back or sit them upright. You can either use it connected with a cord or use it with battery which is really convenient. Oct 25, 2021

  • The best swing! Mimics the glider rocker we rock our baby in. Shs loves it and it soothes her every time! Love the battery or plug in option! May 24, 2021

  • This swing has been a lifesaver. My twins love it! Apr 28, 2021

  • The lay flat feature is great!! The multiple other options help ensure there will be a setting just for your babies liking Mar 22, 2021

  • My daughter absolutely loved this! She would fall asleep and nap and it would entertain her so easily. My son on the other hand hated it and would not stay in it for more than 5 minutes. Mar 05, 2021

  • When we first brought him home, my bub would only sleep on someone or in this swing (supervised). It became a really handy place to put him, until he started being mobile. Feb 16, 2021

  • This swing is great for nap time. It even reclines! Feb 10, 2021

  • I have this and a mamaroo, and I would buy this again over the other hands down. It was about a 3rd of the price, but both of my twins seem to like the movement on this better. It's also much quieter. Jan 30, 2021

  • Hit or miss with my kids. My second loved it, quieted him down at crucial times. My third has not really loved it. Its quiet, does what it says it does. Now its just a safe chair for my 4 month old. Dec 22, 2020

  • My daughter didn't like it. She was only weeks old and we will try again later. Dec 07, 2020

  • This was so nice I loved the glide and how you could have natural tunes or lullaby’s I definitely will use it agaib Nov 26, 2020

  • Using since baby came home from hospital now 5 months old. Swing starts going really fast on its own and music is so/so but baby loves it, almost outgrown it. Reclines.sits up. Aug 13, 2020

    The swing never worked properly. It would barely swing. Graco sent us a replacement motor and it still didn't work. I ended up returning. Jul 23, 2020

  • My mother bought this when I had my first kid. I loved it so much I bought one for my second! I love the lower profile and the simple gliding. Apr 25, 2020

  • My daughter didn’t sleep any longer in this. Made a clicking noise and even first setting seemed really fast. Apr 20, 2020

  • Gentle rocking, only have used speed 1 of 6. In my opinion I wouldn’t want it to go faster than that. My son likes the swing, but it does take up a lot of space. I would have preferred a smaller one. Mar 19, 2020

  • My colicky LO hates to be put down unless it's in this swing! Only chance I get during the day to have both arms free. Mar 11, 2020

  • Didn’t work for us also it made a clicking noise when it swung that was annoying Mar 04, 2020

  • My daughter lived in hers! This was an essential for her colicky days Feb 03, 2020

  • Opted for this swing instead of a different one above because of the smaller footprint. Didn’t work for us. I needed the side to side motion, not just the forward and back. Feb 02, 2020

    My son’s daycare has this and he LOVES it. The speed and sound options are perfect! Jan 12, 2020

    We got lucky as I know some parents try multiple swings and gliders. Our baby loved this motion. The vibration is a great add on to help smooth baby to sleep. Bouncer can detach and move around. Jan 05, 2020

  • My son loves the motion while sleeping and the little bears catch his attention when he's awake. I've only used it for 3 months though, and it's suddenly making a clicking noise with each movement Jan 02, 2020

  • The only thing our baby falls asleep and stays asleep in! Gliding and vibration is soothing for him. The canopy is useless and falls off all the time. The harness is not padded and gets in the way. Dec 03, 2019

  • This glider is amazing! It rarely fails to calm my girl. It can run on batteries or plug in. 6 speeds, plus vibrate and sound modes give us options to find what works. Plus it takes up less space! Nov 21, 2019

  • We love this swing. The multiple speeds and sounds come in handy for naps. I love that it plugs in so I'm not going through batteries. The vibration feature comes in two variations. Nov 12, 2019

  • Both of my children seem to enjoy this swing, but I would not say it instantly calms them if they are already upset. If they are put in happy, they stay happy until hungry. Nov 06, 2019

  • This glider was and it's still such a helper! My newborn suffered from a bit of colic @ first and this glider was handy for her naps when the crib would not let her sleep. Sounds and gliding are great Oct 30, 2019

  • My baby loves this! She falls asleep almost every single time I put her in this. But she’s now 3 months old and hardly fits it in it. I recommend rebuying. Sep 16, 2019

  • Second baby didn’t love this but I’m Not sure I gave it enough of a try. It is very safe and has a lot of positive things. I am going to try it again with my third. Sep 16, 2019

  • This was the only way our daughter would sleep from 3-6 months. Literal life saver when you are a sleep deprived mama. Sep 09, 2019

    Both kids loved this as newborns! I couldn’t imagine the first year without this. It helped with fussiness and gave me much needed breaks! Lasted thru two kids and still works! Sep 04, 2019
