    Default Baby swing - best swing direction??

    I went to look at electric baby swings & found that many of them swing side-to-side rather than forwards-to-backwards. Which is better? Are there advantages (in theory at least) of one over the other? Does anyone know an electric swing that offers both options? I imagine that some babies prefer one over the other and I would love a swing that offers both if at all possible.

    My sil has one that goes side to side, but you can twist the "carriage" when and lock it in to twist back to forth. Sorry, I don't know the brand.

    I'm guessing side to side would be less nauseating after a feed

    We have the my lil lamb swing and it goes forward and back or side to side.

    My 10 week old loves it, goes in it every day and falls asleep every time, great swing.

    I have the fisher Price little lamb swing too. . it goes both directions.
    However. . if I was to buy a different one. . even though it's expensive I think I'd buy the mamaroo one. Because it bounces and jiggles. .. which mimics the movement like when you are carrying baby. .. this always puts my dd to sleep. In saying that. .. she used to sleep in the swing quite a bit.
