Have you decided if and what type you want?

I am looking at this one, but it seems so bulky on the bottom: Amazon.com: Fisher-Price Zen Collection Cradle Swing: Baby

I REALLY want this one, but DH doesn't want to spend that much: Amazon.com: 4Moms 2012 Mamaroo Classic- Classic Black: Baby

This one isn't bad, either: baby swing at Target

I just don't know!

Out of them all I like the mamaroo,which one of the 3rd link do you like, it comes up with all of the swings at Target.
I would suggest looking on craigslist or some local place that has people selling used stuff cus those can be pricey and for a short time. Some babies don't like swings.

I like the Little Lamb Dream Swing from Target.

And yeah, my son definitely loved the swing but my daughter hated it. With DS, we put him in it from the moment he got home but with DD, we waited almost a month, so that could have made the difference. I've been keeping my eye out on Craigslist and Ebay, too.

I have the older graco one with 6 speeds and music, its not the padded seat like the ones you showed, its padded butnot delux if that makes sense lol. I have a jumperoo and ever since kade learned how to crawl at 5 months he refuses to go in it. so that's being put away! It amazing how much stuff WE want for baby but baby don't like LOL

That's okay, Kirsten. If you guys will use it, you can just keep it.

OMG, I just checked out some videos of that mamaroo thing! That will be on my wish list for sure! DD had a small Bright starts portable swing and she didn't like it until she was about a couple months old. What she loved was the Fisher Price Bouncer. We were a bit strapped for money the last time around. This time we might splurge a little and get this extra gizmo!!

I have two of the brentwood swings from fisher price.

One worked better than the other. I will use that again. That mamaroo thing is fancy! We saw one at buy buy baby and put my 2.5 year old in it. She loved it! I just don't see spending $200 for it!
