This swing has been a lifesaver for my two babies, particuarly for being a safe place to put DS2 when i need to attend to DS1. It is so soft and snuggly that I wish i could crawl into it often whilst sleep deprived in the middle of winter. Bub is lying down at a slight angle so his head is elevated and it reduces the chance of him spitting up after a feed which is nice. The swing material is very easy to remove and wash.
Only downside is that it chews through $14 packs of batteries in a few weeks and that it takes up a LOT of space. But it is a good quality product that is still going strong after two years of use for my two babies and two friends who i have lent it to.
Once bub can sit up it becomes unsafe as my eldest kept trying to grab the mobile and pull himself up.
One of my best baby purchases. If only they made one for sleep deprived new mums :-)
My daughter looks so comfortable in this swing that I want one for myself!
The swing is capable of swinging side to side, head to toe and toe to head and is very easy to move between options. It has a mobile and a mirror for bubs to stare up at (the mirror is a big hit) and a couple of music options (typical fisher price stuff, random baby tunes and rainforest/outdoors noises). The volume control is good too - from quiet to quite loud. There is also the option to have the mobile/music going without the swing moving too.
The swing itself was easy to put together and has removable covers - great for those poo-explosions - and the fabric itself seems to come clean surprisingly easily.
It does take up a fair amount of room, but seems quite sturdy. I do wonder how much longer my 7kg daughter will be in it for though as it has a bit of a rock on one leg now when the swing is on max. She is a long baby though (currently 68.5cm) and still fits in it comfortably with a good amount of room left.
My one complaint is that it only runs on batteries - an ac adaptor would be a godsend.
