I got this as a gift for my baby shower and it was by far my favorite gift. With all the different functions this Graco swing has how can you possibly go wrong? My all time favorite feature is that it plugs in. I have 3 kids and I had battery operated swings for my other two and we went through batteries like water. Very irritating not to mention extremely expensive. Love that it rocks and swings because sometimes certain babies like different motions. My son liked them both. Sometimes he wanted to swing especially when he was ready to nap and then other time when he was fussy from being colicy he liked the rocking motion. Also, the music is a life saver because my son listened to Mozart and Bach while in my stomach so he came out loving and needing music I think. The only con is that the motor is a bit loud but I honestly think that it is partially what helped but my son to sleep. Ha! Therefore, I am keeping it at 5 stars. I am a huge fan of Graco products in general and the Graco DuetSoothe Infant Swing and Rocker, in Winslet just proved another reason why.
