“We never bought a swing with our first child because we didn’t think it was necessary. After a few weeks we realized it was VERY helpful…you (can) flip the swing between rocking back and forth or side to side depending on your baby’s personal preference, (and) the spinning mobile kept our baby’s attention.” roreesmommy, a reviewer since 2010

“We received this swing as a shower gift and it turns out to be my absolute favorite piece of baby equipment! We also had a Graco infant carrier, and the fact that I could bring my child in from the car sleeping and put them in the swing to continue sleeping was a life saver. We also really liked the fact that the seat came out of the swing and could be used as an alternative to a bouncy seat.” dalig3 a reviewer since 2011

“Upon having my 4th child, I wanted to get a travel sized swing that would be small enough to tote with us on out frequent trips, yet sturdy enough to be truly functional…It folds nicely and tucks into a corner in my dining room when it’s not in use, but is easy enough to set up that I frequently take it out and set it up with one hand while holding my 5 months old with the other.” Xraychic9, a reviewer since 2010
