Baby Swings? What do you like?

My sister in law just had a new baby!!! YAY!! Her name is Camryn Marie!!

Well my sister in law doesn't have a baby swing... and I don't have any left because we already got rid of them

So I told her as her baby gift I would get her a swing...

What kinds do you like? Or dislike?

I used to have the cradle swings- BUT it had a really wide base...

One I was thinking of was the kind you can put an infant car seat into... because then they could take it with them if need be... but they are SO EXPENSIVE for something that doesn't even have a seat....

Any thoughts??

Re: Baby Swings? What do you like?

We loved our Rain Forest swing! and it plugged in.Such a nice thing when you run out of batteries at 2 am with a colicky newborn.
It does have a wide base, which if space is an issue is a really big flaw.
The other things I liked was the ability to change the direction it swung(reflux baby liked side to side more then front to back, which made him puke and scream), the mobile, and the music.

We like our fisher price 3 in 1. It is a infant seat, baby swing and toddler rocker. My DD will sit in it still but it goes to 40 pounds or so.

I had both kinds for DD and prefer the cradle swing. I had the Fisher Price Aquarium one and liked it. http://www.toysrus.com/product/index...ductId=2265072

We liked our Rain Forest travel swing. It got the job done and didn't take up alot of room. We only changed the batteries 1 time in 6 months and she used the crap outta that thing
