We have really gotten a lot of use out of this swing as my son loves it! He likes reaching for the cute teddy bears above his head and the music (with adjustable volume) is very soothing. The top cushion is easily removable and can be thrown in the washer. It does make a quiet clicking noise as it swings but doesn't seem to bother my son. We haven't really used the rocker option, as you physically have to be there rocking the seat. Perhaps a bouncer would have been a better option for us so that baby can move the seat with his own movement. Overall, no problems, great and reliable product.
Our baby is teething, so she does not want to be put down more than usual. We bought this, so I may be able to do other chores still. It works. Our baby was awake when I put her in the swing, and she eventually fell asleep on her own. The reasons why I did not rate this product as excellent are following. There was a part in the assembly where it just wouldn't snap together properly, as in the metal was scraping the sides of the plastic. Also, the metal base itself is difficult to transfer to other rooms, since it does not easily go through doors if it's upright.
The swing is always helpful to free up your hands. It worked great to get ourid little one to sleep as well. On top of the swing the bouncer is light and easily moveable. Great multipurpose item to have for a little one.
This is lightweight. I love the option of taking it off the swing. I use the swing on low setting. The ability to put the baby somewhere soothing while I did house chores on and off his first few weeks was a life saver. I don't know what I would have done with out it. I always buckle him in even if it is just for a minute or two. Now that he is bigger I still use the swing, but I regularly detach the seat and I am able to pull him around the house and give him a place to sit while I am cooking or doing chores. He LOVES sitting in it, even more than a car seat. I also can hang toys from the top bar and he sits and talks to them. Great way to keep him nearby when I am in the shower too. Valuable and useful.
