Favorite baby swing?

My girlfriend gave us a Boppy brand swing. It's one of the smaller ones that is more reclined, low to the ground & has a lower weight limit. It's a great swing but I can see that Luke would prefer & needs to be sitting up more for the reflux. Also he's going to hit the weight limit sooner than later, as he's a few ounces shy of 12 lbs now at 5 weeks & it only goes to 20 lbs. I know the bigger swings go to 30 lbs.

Do you have a larger swing that you really like? Or even one that you got & didn't like? And why? Thank you!

I got a Natures touch cradle swing used off CL. I really like it except for the fact that the music turns off after a few minutes and it does not come with a remote so someone has to get up to reset it. I have a weird baby who will not sleep without noise LOL we have to have a radio going in our bedroom at night now.

I have the same swing and I love it. It is annoying that the music turns off on its own but luckily once baby is asleep she doesn't seem to need it.

I have a fischer price Little Lamb swing and I love it- lil guy is sleeping in it right now. I like the fact that it goes both side to side and front to back (though oddly Bryce only likes front and back, which supposedly is for older babies)

We have the Graco Sweatpeace. I LOVE it. It has wonderful sound options that go indefinitely and can be plugged in or use batteries. You can have just the noise parts on if you want without the swing which is what we do in our room at night. He either listens to a thunderstorm, heartbeat or waterfall. It has 6 speed options and you can rotate which way the baby swings. If you have a graco carseat it can fit in the base as well. We used it with DS1 and have gotten a ton of use out of it already with DS2. You can also hook up your Ipod to it (and probably Iphone) and play music from your library if you want.
