When did your baby like the swing?

My 3 week old hates it! He's slept in it one time! As soon as I put him in it he screams. Im debating if I should even keep it.

I believe my LO was about 6 weeks. I would hold on to it for a bit cause it can be a lifesaver if you want to get things done. He liked his up until about 5 1/2 months when he was too big and could go in jumper

My DD did the same thing, she HATED the swing. My DS however loves the swing, and has since he was a few weeks old. You may want to wait a few more weeks and see if he "changes his mind", if not, I think it's unlikely he'll like it as he gets older.
On a side note, my DD wants in that swing so badly now that DS is using it and she is way too big, lol.

We put my baby in it swaddled and he loves it. It only works if the baby can't roll over or move too much yet.

He doesn't like to be swaddled. DS did tho and he liked being in the swing. I'm thinking about selling mine and getting a cradle swing. I have the graco sweet peace swing now.

It varied from one kid to another, but all three eventually loved the garage sale graco swing. And they all used it till at least 12 months.

I don't know if this is helpful or not, but with DS1 I got a small portable swing and he hated it. The big, open swing he loved though. I think because he could see better and the movement was bigger. Both my boys preferred to seriously swing. None of this piddly rocky rocky business.

Both boys were fine in the swing from day one.

when I watched 'Happiest Baby on the Block' and it told me to put the swing on the highest setting.

Babies don't like that low setting at all. but when I put it on the highest and it really moved her around - she liked it.

Re: When did your baby like the swing?

My son thought the swing was ok but far preferred the bouncy seat. Take baby to the store and try out a bunch and see what baby likes before you run out and sell/buy a new one. We'd always test them in the store and he had clear opinions even at that age. We got a travel swing and used it sometimes as he would not refuse it but it was not the preference.
