After 7 week of our newborn not sleeping (and for me not sleeping either!) I finally left her in the swing to sleep at night (I know sleeping on her back in the crib is the best thing, but I was desperate!).  She slept 7 hours that first night (her longest was maybe 2 hours at a time in her crib).  She slept in the swing from 7 week to 4 months.  We moved her out of it into her crib when she was getting strong enough to move around in the swing.  So our little lamb swing would be on 12+ hours during the day for 2 months straight, and still works great.  We had to replace the batteries twice during the first 6 months, which I think is pretty good for how much we used it.  The seat is very soft, and washes easily.  (And with all the time in the swing, our baby does not have a flat head either).  The music is okay, but would be the first thing to go when the batteries are running down.  We have loaned it to our friends now for their baby and know there will be plenty of life left in it for our number two!

We received this as a gift, and have not been very happy with it. We have had it for only a few months and have had to change the batteries in it three times! And it take D batteries so they are not cheap! We would not buy it ourselves and if I ever received this one again, than I would probably return it and get a different one. I think that it is visually really appealing, and some of the songs are nice, however, the first song is pretty loud and annoying. I do like that you can rotate the swing itself to swing either back and forth or side to side. Our little boy does  like the swinging motions, but not so much the music that is available.

We loved this swing

By 

from USA

Comments about Fisher-Price My Little Lamb Cradle 'n Swing:

My baby loved this swing. It rocks side to side and front to back. The audio settings on this swing allow to you to play either songs or soothing sounds and you can set the volume. The fabric is really soft and the little head rest provides good head support when they fall asleep in the swing.

Versatility
This swing was easy to move just about anywhere in the house. You have a lot of options on the settings and sounds and the direction the swing rocks.

Durability
This swing was very durable. My baby was a pretty heavy baby and this swing was sturdy enough for him and also held up well with all of the times we moved it.

Ease of Use
This swing was very easy to use and clean.

Safety
This swing was very safe. It has harness straps to hold the baby in and a supportive head rest for when baby sleeps.

Features
This swing had great features from audio sounds to the way it rocks. The sounds on it were very clear and it also had an overhead mirror and little stuffed animals hanging from it for baby to look at and play with.

Great little swing

By 

from Dallas

Comments about Fisher-Price My Little Lamb Cradle 'n Swing:

My baby was never a huge fan of swings, but this one at least gave her a perfect place to sleep for the first three weeks of her life. I wish we had the model that you can plug into the wall, but ours ran solely on C batteries. Once we were done with it, we sold it very cheap to a family member who just had twins. Their babies LOVE the thing. It calms them down right away. I guess my baby was just different. From what I hear online, most babies love this thing.
It rocks, it plays music, it's super soft. It all comes apart so you can toss the inserts in the wash if baby gets spit up or poo on them.
The hardest part is pulling the cover back over the seat around where the base clips into the bucket seat, but it's still doable with a little effort. We have a very small apartment, and we were still able to fit it in our layout and use it regularly. Sometimes we would pick the whole thing up and carry it into another room to use it, even though our doorways are very small. It's doable.

Safety
it has a little harness that comes up under their butt and clips across their abdomen

Great little swing!

By 

from USA

Comments about Fisher-Price My Little Lamb Cradle 'n Swing:

We bought this swing when we found out we were pregnant with our first child. Luckily we found it in a second hand shop and that made it affordable. My daughter loved this swing! We would place her in the swing and she would either snuggle right in and fall asleep or spending time watching the mobile. It has 3 ways to turn the swing so if your baby does not like one way try the others. The only issues we had with the swing was that my daughter did not like the high speed, it squeaked when it went to fast, and the batteries worn out in it. If it had an ac adapter I would have loved it even more. The music for the swing is not at all annoying and it has different options to choose from. I don't know how many people it passed through before we got it, we had it and used it for an estimated 5-8 months, when the little one started to decide she would like to try to slither out of it than be in it, and I passed it a long to a friend and it's still working for her. It comes with buckles and a tray.

Great swing, the second time!

By 

from USA

Comments about Fisher-Price My Little Lamb Cradle 'n Swing:

I would've given this swing a 10 except they had to send us a second one because the motor blew out of the first one after only about a month... Once they sent us a new motor the swim was great!! I have a preemie baby so I thought it swung a little fast for him, but for heavier babies this wouldn't be an issue, I love the spinning mobile and the music that plays, the seat is also very cushioned and soft to the touch! I love the toy bar on the swing but I think it's irrelevant, babies that use a swing like this would be strapped in and unable to play with it, so I think it's more for looks and less functional.. I do love the fact you can take the seat cover off and wash/dry it because we all know babies have accidents..

Versatility
The swing folds up for easy storage in a closet or against a wall. It folds flat but is still pretty tall.

Durability
The swing has been going strong for over a year through 2 babies since the motor was replaced!

Ease of Use
Easy push buttons and very well labeled.

Safety
Has a strap to fix baby in there.

Features
Great music/ sound effects and cute spinning mirrored mobile.

Lifesaver for New Parents!

By 

from USA

Comments about Fisher-Price My Little Lamb Cradle 'n Swing:

I have to say I absolutely loved having this for my daughter! Any new parents should definitely take a look at this. We received this as a gift so cost wasn't a factor, but we are extremely pleased with the quality. It has different settings on the swing so you can have it swing, swing with the mobile turning, or have it still with the mobile turning. It has a separate dial to control the speed the swing rocks which was great for soothing a fussy baby, and it has a timer so the swing will stop automatically after a certain time, which is nice for a sleepy parent who might otherwise forget to watch the time. I loved the feature that lets you turn which way the swing rocks (front to back or side to side) because of one direction didn't soothe her, turn it and the other way did. I found it to be very durable, the cover comes off easily (for parents, not little fingers) and held up perfectly through many washings. Even the animals on the mobile come off for the baby to play with or easy-washing access. The battery power option seems like it would be nice but the swing goes through them very quickly, so make sure you have a power cord for it. One of the best parts is that it folds down for easy travel, great for visiting in-laws or going on vacation. I recommend this to all new parents!

Versatility
The option to change the swinging direction is great and the fact it folds up and can run on batteries if you need it to makes it very portable.

Durability
I washed the cover at least once a week and have had absolutely no issues with it falling apart.

Ease of Use
Just watch the baby's head when setting them down, that you don't bump them into the mobile.

Safety
There is a 3-point buckle to hold the baby in and a tray for their lap, but I would have like to see a 5-point harness instead. I would guess a clever/curious baby could get out when they got older. Also, not a great option for very small babies. At 5 pounds, 12 ounces, I didn't want to put my baby in it because she might have fallen out the leg hole, I would say the minimum would be 8-10 pounds at least.

The most amazing put your baby to sleep device ever

By 

from Nesconset,ny

Comments about Fisher-Price My Little Lamb Cradle 'n Swing:

When I started doing my baby registry, I pretty much didn't know anything about anything. So when the time came to put stuff on my registry, I didn't know what was good besides the comments I was reading from other moms which were all different. By the way I was pregnant with twins, which meant double everything for the most part. I seen the fisher price my little lamb cradle swing online and fell in love with it. I went into the store and seen it in person and it was perfect. It has a very soft cushiony inside with an adjustable safety belt. But what really got me was it gave you the option to have it swing and play music or just swing and let your baby or babies soothingly fall asleep. It has beautiful netting on the back and toys up top for visual aid while the baby is being rocked. Once the Babies were born and big enough about two to three months, that was their favorite place to be. They did not like napping in their bassinets, but as soon as we stuck them in their swings, it was quiet nap time and music to my ears.

Fisher-Price My Little Lamb Cradle 'n Swing Review

By 

from Virginia, USA

Comments about Fisher-Price My Little Lamb Cradle 'n Swing:

This is a great product! I used this with my newborn until she turned 6 months old ( I ended up giving it away because a friend of mine had a baby). The features on this product is amazing. I love the sounds and the fact that I can control how fast the product swings. My daughter had colic during her first few months, and the Fisher-Price My Little Lamb Cradle 'n Swing was the only thing that would soothe her. You can choose from 2 different positions as well, and trust me, they both come in handy! The mobile and the reflective mirror-like accessory is an added bonus! As my daughter became older ( a few months old), she became more and more interested in the mobile with it's little stars and lambs, and she LOVED looking at her reflection. All in all, this is a GREAT product. I will definitely buy another when I decide to have another baby! I would definitely recommend this product over other swings! It is worth every penny!

Not very durable, ours broke at six months of use

By 

from USA

Comments about Fisher-Price My Little Lamb Cradle 'n Swing:

At first I loved this product. My baby girl loved to swing in it and I used it daily. By the time she was six months old it broke. I tried to order new parts and they were on back order. Luckly the store let us exchange it. Less than 4 months later that one broke too. I was very disappointed. This was an expensive purchase and not something I could afford to replace.

Versatility
This swing can swing side to side and front to back. My daughter liked swinging side to side the most.

Durability
Not very durable. Ours broke very early on and we were very gentle with this product.

Ease of Use
Pretty easy to use. Just place baby in swing. Buckle in and pick a setting. Not the easiest to put together though. Takes up a good deal of space too.

Safety
Very good safety buckles. Baby is good and snug in the seat. Plus with the tray feature you can snap that on to help secure your baby.

Features
Lots of features! Different sounds such as nature, lullabys, and songs, plus the swing can swing in more than one direction.The rate at which baby swings is also adjustable. So baby can swing very slow or pretty fast. Comes with a small tray with a toy too. As baby gets older there are a few things to grasp and pull. One of the best features is that you can plug in the swing or use batteries. Pluging in a swing is a life saver. Not more having to wake baby up because you have to crank a swing or the batteries die.

Good middle of the road swing

By 

from USA

Comments about Fisher-Price My Little Lamb Cradle 'n Swing:

This is a good swing if you're looking for something nice but not too expensive. It's comfortable and aesthetically pleasing. I like the music and mobile. The swinging is quite fast. I use the slowest setting for my newborn and it's still surprisingly fast. I imagine as she gets heavier the swinging will slow down some and I'll use some of the higher settings.

The main drawback is the lack of a plug. It runs solely on batteries. I don't use the swing super often so I don't have issues going through batteries quickly but the friend who gave it to me did. I invested in some good rechargeable batteries - that's the only way to go with this swing.

It is a little awkward getting baby out of the swing. I wish the toy bar would swing up or out so you could quickly and easily move it out of the way to get baby out. It's awkward and you have to completely remove it.

My baby loves the papasan shape of the swing. I do too! She hated my friends swing that had the different style chair. She's also quite fond of the mobile, especially the reflective part.

Durability
I'm the third owner of this swing and it's still going strong. I think it's very durable!

Ease of Use
The controls are easy to access and self explanatory.

Safety
It has a nice buckle and straps.

Features
It has the mobile, music, and swinging in two directions.

My Baby Loves it!

By

Comments about Fisher-Price My Little Lamb Cradle 'n Swing:

I was given this by a stranger, yes a stranger stopped me while I was pregnant and asked if I wanted a cradle swing for my baby. When I saw it it looked complicated to put together since it was in parts. MY husband put it together super easy. My baby is now 6 months going on 7 months. She has been using this since she was a newborn. Its so comfy as she falls asleep so fast. the pillow is soft, and comfy, adjustable to babys neck. You can rotate the seat so it can swing from side to side, or back and forth. The mobile and the mirror keep her busy when she is awake. It has motion settings so it can swing fast, or slow, and the sound settings allow u to adjust the volume, also change from birds to water, to music, that will make your baby sleepy. :) Its washable seat cover is easy to remove and put back. Just dont use the DRYER ON HIGH It will shrink. :(

Durability
The screws need adjustment every now and then.

Safety
Because my baby is now moving so much, and turning in the swing, I dont leave her alone like I used too. Even with the safety belt on, she can still move around and its scares me she may fall out.
