When I found out I was pregnant, I wanted to get a swing because my parents said that the swing was a lifesaver for them when I was a baby. I thought we would get a lot of use out of it since it three different functions but we have not used it successfully yet and she is 10 months old now. My daughter was a very high maintenance baby for the first few months and I would really have liked to depend on this swing. I was very disappointed when I found out the swing did not recline back far enough. My baby's head just fell over on her chest when she fell asleep so I was too worried to put her in it. I tried again when she had really great head control, but I still could not manage to keep her head upright. This swing is rather big. We live in a small apartment and it takes up too much room. We recently tried to use it as an infant rocker but my baby did not like that because I had to strap her in. Hopefully we will get a little bit of use out of it when she she can use it as a chair and get in and out of it on her own. I was also very disappointed in the music. It sounded out of tune to me and I could not stand listening to it.
