  • I received this as a gift and my baby loved it! However, as he gained weight, the swing would sway in a way that made me uncomfortable as I felt it was unsafe. Didn’t get much use out of it. May 27, 2020

  • zero head support. We had to purchase a separate insert for our infant to safely sit in this swing. After 2 months of use it would randomly stop working. Ended up replacing with another Graco model. Apr 24, 2020

  • Easy to assemble and a life saver in the beginning months. Sometimes this was the only thing that kept our sanity! Apr 13, 2020

  • Our baby liked this swing and it was a great price! Swings are used for such a small amount of time so don’t waste your money and get something simple that works well like this! Apr 13, 2020

  • Returned product. Took up more space than I thought. Swing was too loud and ended up not working after a few days. Mar 25, 2020

  • Our daughter loved this swing and it was simple and it would swing forever Mar 11, 2020

  • I really didn't want to get a swing, but my baby wouldn't nap at all. Not being held, in the wrap, in his cradle, nothing worked. We caved and he loved this swing for napping or watching us eat dinner Mar 06, 2020

  • Loved this! My baby took the best naps in here during the early stages. Feb 28, 2020

  • It works great but my baby didn't like it at all Feb 26, 2020

    Baby LOVED his swing. He's too big now but we swore by this swing for a LONG time. It was a favorite nap spot and calmed him down instantly. Feb 20, 2020

  • Great swing! Feb 14, 2020

  • Takes up a lot of space and my swing broke after a few uses. It would only work SOMETIMES and only on one setting Feb 08, 2020

    I received this as a baby shower gift and after 1.5 months the motor started to sound louder and it wouldn't start swinging unless you pushed it yourself. Forget customer service and the warranty. Feb 02, 2020

  • The motter it terrible on this. My daughter was only 18 lbs and it was acting like she was 40. Jan 22, 2020

  • We had this for three out of the four kids. It was helpful for when I needed a break and my husband had the baby, but it was hard to move so it stayed in one room and mostly just my husband used it. Jan 01, 2020

    Wish I had registered for the 4moms swing. This one is cheap and not comfortable for baby. Also, now that she is bigger- 12lbs, the swing clicks with every sway. It drives me crazy. Dec 16, 2019

  • We used out swing often and it helped sooth my fussy daughter when she wasn’t being held. Bulky to move around but great when I needed her rocked as an infant but needing to put her down for a moment Dec 15, 2019

  • Def less bulky than other swings but still tough to get through doors, you have to bring it in at an angle. Our baby really enjoys this, especially as a newborn. The vibration stopped Working however Dec 03, 2019

  • I love that it vibrates also! Great to soothe baby and also when they're sick for percussion. Love this swing! Nov 22, 2019

  • The swinging settings are great, theres music or nature noises, volume control. My baby sleeps in his like a charm! We love it! Nov 20, 2019

  • Baby loves this! This is the only place where he can actually put himself to sleep. The vibration is probably the best feature, as it helps to calm baby. Affordable and takes up minimum space. Oct 22, 2019

    It’s just OK. The incline is a little odd and the seat shape makes my baby sit in an awkward position. She still enjoys it. I just wanted something simple and affordable. Not my favorite! Oct 03, 2019

  • Really simple like we wanted! Comfy seat and easy to use. Multiple settings for sound and speed of swing! My daughter loves the simple stars to look at! Sep 27, 2019

  • My son wasn’t a huge fan but it worked properly and may be great for a baby that likes sitting in swings Sep 23, 2019

  • This was a life saver for our newborn. She loved taking naps in her swing during the day. I liked that it was affordable and simple to use. I also like that it could be plugged in or run on batteries. Sep 05, 2019

  • When he was smaller this did not really work for us, however as he got bigger he loved to play on this swing. He gets fussy after being held for a while and this was his go to spot. Sep 02, 2019

  • The seat is positioned weird and my babies could never kee their head up right even with the head support pillow it’s pretty useless. Ended up getting rid of this Aug 17, 2019

    I used this with my first daughter up until she was a year old. It’s great because it can be for a new born up to 35 pounds. It was the only way my daughter would sleep as an infant. Aug 07, 2019

  • I have this and my son loves it. We have been putting him in it since he was 2 days old. I like that it fits perfectly in my living room and has multiple sounds. Aug 05, 2019

  • Really like this swing just wish it would move different directions swing seems comfortable for my little one and it vibrates and plays music and other sounds Aug 04, 2019

    I love how convenient this was the first few months. However, my daughter is now 7 months and does not use it at all. Also, the head rest has little to no support. Had to improvise. Jul 29, 2019

  • My son has loved this swing! It's been great for nap and quiet time. It's sturdy. The fabric is soft and washable. The music and sounds are soothing, even to me, and the sound is adustable. Jul 20, 2019

  • Easy to put together and move. Swing is very loud after a few weeks of use and is quite distracting to baby when trying to put to sleep. Material seems of good quality and comfortable for baby. Jul 13, 2019

  • This has been a lifesaver for our 3 week old who absolutely loves this swing. She can be in the middle of a howling cry and then I put her in the seat to strap her in and she is silenced mid scream. Jul 03, 2019

  • It took my baby a little bit to adjust to this swing but now she loves it. She enjoys the music & nature sounds. This swing has helped her fall asleep on many occasions and has many different speeds. Jul 01, 2019

  • We have this at home. The only way we could get my oldest to sleep for a nap. Jun 26, 2019

  • Like it but don’t really care for it. I hate that it only swings one way. Jun 20, 2019

  • My baby loves to swing in this! Straps are not as supportive as I would like, but they are very easy to use. May 30, 2019

  • Great for your little one to go to sleep in. Several song and sound selections. Has 6 different speeds ranging from slow to fast. May 30, 2019

  • Our daughter always enjoyed motion so this was a lifesaver for us when she was a newborn. She still fits in it at 20lbs so we sometimes use it if she’s having a bad day! May 12, 2019

  • This is a more basic version swing but does everything you need it to. Works with batteries or plug it in. Doesnt have adjustable positions but baby loves it. May 07, 2019
