Moms out there: what is the best baby swing????
I am looking for a swing to help my baby(due in September) sleep. We have enough activity stuff, so I am not concerned with that, I am just looking for something that will help him sleep.
Any advice is much appreciated!

We have the fisher price snugabunny swing. DD loves it! She still naps in it at 6 months old 🙂 whichever one you get, just make sure it has the ac adapter. I know a lot of the fisher price ones dont and I cannot imagine the hassle/annoyance it is to constantly be dealing with batteries for it.

We have the graco duet connect swing. My twins love it, theu stare at the little bears for a long tikenand go to sleep, they are very soothed by this swing. Also the swing comes off and your left with the rocker part, which is nice when baby falla aleep but maybe you want to go to bed or go to another part of the house but you don’t want to pick him up, DH just grabs the rocker part and takes it to our room and we let him snooze in it until the next feeding then mo e him to his bassinet.
Its alao particularly nice when you have twins because if you have twoof these swings you put the two rockers next to eachother to tandem bottle feed.

Our boys aren’t here yet, but we got a pair of mamaroos because they got wonderful reviews. I think the only downside is that they’re pricey (we received them as gifts).

We have the fisher price snugapuppy and DD generally likes it and will nap in it. We tried my sisters mamaroo but she wasn’t impressed. I’d like to check out the rockaroo instead since she prefers a rocking motion to a swinging one but theyre only in them for a short period of time so I wasn’t going to spend any more money, but she’s a good sleeper on her own.

Second the MamaRoo swing, they’re great. They have kind of a low weight limit though, so I would check on craigslist to try and find an inexpensive one since depending on your kids growth you might not get to use it for long. My friend got hers for $80 from a craigslist seller.

I have snuggabunny swing also. I heard wonderfult things but my son always hated it as well as bouncers and everything but my arms basically. It was expensive though so I’m hoping baby #2 likes it!

LadySmurph: I could have written this exact post! I’m hoping we’ll have better luck with it with a future child.

Cory_loves_this_girl: yay for high needs babies! Not that I’d have it any other way my boy is such A Snuggler!
i forgot to mention this though, my pediatrician recommended the fisher price rock and play and it literally saved my sanity! It was the only thing my son slept in for 3 months And it fit perfectly next to the bed and I never had to struggle to climb over the bulky co-sleeper we were sure would be a god send (hint- it wasnt) He’s happily in his crib now, thankfully with no transition issues!

Snuggabunny! Plugs in, and has 5 (?) different speeds, cute tunes and can go side to side or forward and backward. Our LO slept many, many, many naps and nightimes in his before he outgrew it! It’s a total lifesaver. 🙂 🙂

Another vote for snuggabunny! It’s the only way my 4 month old will nap for more than 30 min. Love that thing!

I have an off brand I bought that plugs in and I love it. Got it when baby was 15 days out and he’ll be 10 months tomorrow and it is like brand new. Granted he doesn’t use it all the time. But it is great. I have never had to buy batteries for it. It holds up to 30 lbs and it comes with 6 speed settings, has a selection of songs and has a timer.
