  • My son loved this swing, hopefully the new babies do as well! Sep 13, 2021

  • My son spits up every time we put him in this regardless of how long after he ate Sep 10, 2021

  • We wanted something simple and didn’t want to invest too much money into a swing. This fit the bill and was easy to move around the room to move out of the way as needed. Aug 18, 2021

    This has been an absolute lifesaver. I have twins and they both love it. I definitely recommend getting a swing if you have multiples. Aug 03, 2021

    Doesn't hold the baby In position. Neck support is missing. Maybe better for older babies. Jul 23, 2021

  • This is objectively a nice swing with solid construction, but my daughter hated swinging side to side. We ended up buying a swing that can go both side to side and front to back. Jul 16, 2021

  • Kids never used it. Sits newborns up too upright so I was uncomfortable putting them in it Jul 06, 2021

  • One of the few swings that could swing hard enough to soothe my baby. May 08, 2021

  • Awesome swing! We used it for my son and now are using it with my twins. They have all loved it. Apr 28, 2021

    Didn't use this very often Mar 12, 2021

  • I’m neutral. It was too big for my newborn it’s a huge bucket type seat. Also thought it would be quite smaller, the base is really wide. Swing settings get quite fast! Feb 24, 2021

  • Baby loves napping in this swing Feb 05, 2021

  • This swing is nice. It rocks back and forth, changes directions and vibrates. However it did not have enough padding to keep my little comfortable. The straps are a little sharp on his neck and should Jan 29, 2021

  • This swing worked very well for us! Our daughter usually slept in this during the day for naps. The music and vibration are fine but we mostly just let her swing without them. I’d recommend to friends Jan 24, 2021

    Best swing ever!! I used it by my first and now by my second and its just perfect. Jan 10, 2021

  • I don't regret this, but my daughter never really took to it. Luckily she was chill without being in the swing. Maybe my twins will like it when they're here. Dec 17, 2020

  • Battery or plug in options make this great to bring around the house. Great for babies who have reflux and need to spend more time sitting up. My baby enjoys this swing quite a bit! Nov 21, 2020

  • I have this swing, it works nicely and she enjoys the side to side rock while watching Mickey. It has gotten louder and louder as she gains weight. She doesn’t seem to mind though. Sep 13, 2020

  • All 3 babies hated this . Aug 18, 2020

    This swing is fantastic. It plugs in lots of sounds and different settings for the music and speed. One downside is it’s so low to the floor! Aug 08, 2020

    My baby loved this swing! She always wanted to be held and this was a nice alternative. We didn’t use the music or vibration setting much she likes it enough without that. Aug 01, 2020

    This swing has been a life-saver for both of my kids! It does take up a lot of space. Newborns will need an additional head support. The swing is durable and helps to calm and put baby to sleep. Jul 29, 2020

    As far as baby swings go you can’t go wrong. We have this one upstairs in our bedroom and he sleeps in it all of the time. Great price and just as good as a more expensive one we have downstairs Jul 28, 2020

  • Worth it for the price. I will caution that high settings with a heavy baby can make it start to sweak. Otherwise, baby would take 4 hour naps in this swing Jul 09, 2020

    Perfect to sleep your baby...My baby will cry out when slept in her crib and will spit upsomuch...My friend recommended it and it was life changed for her...Love the way it cozies the baby Jul 07, 2020

  • I used this daily before my son outweighed the requirements! Used it for him to fall asleep with and to relax while I worked from home! Jun 24, 2020

  • This is a great convenience to have, my baby seemed to prefer the mamaroo. But this was great because you can take the bouncer off the swing which comes in very handy! Jun 07, 2020

  • 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
