I bought this swing thinking it would help our boy sleep but it was so not worth it. We ended up returning the swing. When we first say it we liked how cute the design was and thought that it would serve a good purpose but we were wrong. the swing was quite expensive. It cost the same as the stroller system that we bought. I think we just used the swing once and then returned. Our little boy looked so tiny in the thing and I think that being swung like that really scared him. Other things that we didn't like about this swing is that if our son did like the swing he would have outgrown it too fast. It didn't seem like this swing was built for a big baby. Also we didn't like how the mobile's animals were so colorful. The first month of a baby's life he seems mostly contrasting things like black and white. Those animals wouldn't have served any purpose for him. Also the swing ran on batteries. This is a terrible idea because we would have run through so many batteries. We are glad we returned this item because it wasn't worth the money.
