I have a question about swings, alot of you probably have one already so I am hoping you can help. DD didn't like hers but it was a travel swing and honestly didn't really work well. What things should I look at? What kind did you choose? and if you are a grad or using it as a btdt are you happy with the performance?

Good Questions! I was looking at swings and thinking the same thing. The last time I had a baby swing it was the kind you had to wind up yourself and there was no tray or toys or music! LOL

I got this swing during my shower with DS Fisher Price Flutterbye Dreams Basic Cradle Swing and I used it for DD too. Both of them loved it. I don't care for it at all. I haven't been able to put my finger on what I don't like, but I really don't. It's something about the performance. I plan on getting a new one if these babies make it. They make swings that plug in now, and I think I'm going to go for that. We spent SO much money on batteries for that stinkin' thing!

Thank you Jaidynsmum for my beautiful siggy!

You might look into one that does more than just front/back motion. They have ones that go side to side and in circles too.

I have a travel swing that worked well for Patrick. I don't plan on getting another one unless I have to.
Thanks to babydoll213 for the siggy! My kids' blog Cora's blog

My kids didn't really like the swing much but loved the vibrating bouncy seat . We did have a friend give us her swing this time that her son out grew. It goes side to side and front to back. I like that feature and am excited to try it. Its a little lamb swing or something like that.

Thanks .:Shortcake:. for my great siggie

I don't have it, but I have friends who have given the little lamb swing great reviews!

I have a Graco lovin' hug, like this one (but different pattern) Graco Lovin' Hug Swing - Hamilton - Graco - Babies"R"Us ....which just has back-front motion, music, and the tray comes with 2 toys, but DD loved it! It takes batteries but we've never had to change them until DD was able to reach the buttons from the couch and kept playing with it
