I never knew how much I would use this thing! I love this swing because it can rock side to side or front to back and had a variety of speeds. My daughter also had severe reflux so being able to keep her propped up slightly was extremely important. Sometimes putting her in the swing was the only way she could nap. The quality of the swing is also excellent. The fabric part of the swing is machine washable and cleans up nicely, especially if your child has a diaper blowout! The swing was a little pricey but I think definitely worth the money. We were able to use it for about 7-8 months and it still looked brand new. It is definitely something that could be saved for more than one child or sold or given as a nice hand me down. The swing also plays music and comes with a tray that you could leave on or take off. The seat of the swing can also recline at different heights which is nice depending on if your child is sleeping or not.
