NOT FOR SNUGRIDE CLICK CONNECT
5/3/2014 by AshPash88 from West Palm Beach, FL
Just recived this item only to find out it is not compatible with my car seat. The description states that this fits snugride and safeseat car seats. How ever this is incorrect. The owners manual specifically states that this is to be used ONLY with the Snugride "Classic Connect". Sooooo disappointed and not excited to stand inline to return a product 2 weeks before my due date :(
Does the trick:)
I am pleased with the snuglide. My daughter didnt like her graco carseat at first, but now being almost 3 months she has learned to like it. The snuglider is great because if my baby falls asleep in the car I can just take her inside and place the carseat in the snuglide and she stays asleep for a while. She will even fall asleep if I put her in the swing slightly tired. The speed is just right. The only drawback is it makes a slight clicking sound and is a little pricey. Great product overall.
Absolutely a MUST have!

The Graco Snugglider is an essential in our baby's day, she falls asleep very quickly in this rocker; no more holding heavy baby in her car seat trying to get her to sleep... Baby loves her car seat and is most comfy there, so when we can get her into her seat and setup the Snugglider to swing, she is asleep in minutes! The only drawback is how many batteries it takes and the limit of settings. This product uses 4 C cell batteries AND 3 AA! Talk about needing A LOT of power... The limited settings are a drawback; there are only two sound choices nature, (some sort of oceanic sound) and music. The two settings for vibration seem to be okay, but that's all. As far as the rocker settings, it is a dial to control how fast baby swings. The fastest, is not very fast but does the trick... Anything slower and baby hardly even rocks, when you set it as low as you can but not off, it just clicks really loud and does not move. Despite the drawbacks, this product really works. My wife and I are very pleased with the purchase and glad we spent extra for the Snugglide so we can just lock in baby's car seat and go.
I got this as a Chirstimas gift for my baby. I love how easy it is to travel with. It takes up almost no room and my baby loves it as much as his big at home swing.

I bought 2 of these swings b/c I live in an apartment and needed something that I could fold up and I liked that I could use my Graco car seats with the swings. However, I find the swing uses so much battery power that I'm constantly changing the batteries, it doesn't swing in a nice smooth motion, it swings and then stops then swings again, one of the swings makes a terrible noise and I can't seem to stop it. Overall I wish I had just bought a regular swing instead.
So practical- you have to have one!

I love the snuglider swing! If you have a snug ride car seat you need this swing! Takes no space which is great if space is an issue & keeps your baby content. Great for bringing to grandma's house as it's super portable. My babies have all loved this swing. I definite must have baby item!
Infant car seat swing frame - no plug?
I purchased the snuglider swing frame for my graco infant car seat - What a great idea!!! But, I was very disappointed with it being battery operated only. I found that the 4 "C" batteries wore out very quickly and didn't quite have the power to really swing the car seat effectively. My hope was that there was an AC adapter plug...but there was not. I would love to see Graco update this product to include an AC adapter plug.
I really want to love it, but I don't.
I discovered this after my second baby, but she was too big for it. Baby #3 came along and I ordered one for him. He has a Fisher Price rainforest swing and loves it, so I thought this would be a great addition to our swing collection. In my opinion though. It has one flaw that ruins it for me. I'll try to explain it. I think it is the short lever arm. I feel like I'm putting my baby on an amusement park ride. It just goes back and forth too fast. Imagine a park swing on a long chain. Now imagine one on a two foot chain! If I try to slow it down, it just stops. This might not bother others, but it does me. The baby doesn't care for it either I guess it doesn't have the same relaxing effect. I'll be returning it.
Great swing for my fussy reflux baby!
11/27/2011 by tegacaymom from Tega Cay, SC
My baby has reflux and loves motion but hated all other swing because he was laying too flat. He loves his car seat! So this swing is PERFECT! I can buckle him in when he's tired and he starts swinging and falls asleep. I can get ready in peace and just take the sleeping baby from swing to car. If he's asleep in the car I can just snap him into the swing and can keep sleeping at home. We never use the music or vibration. I feel like the volume is too loud and the swinging alone is enough. Also, the white noise from the motor is perfect! It swings really well even with the heavy car seat, baby (17lbs) and blankets! I've had it for 3 months now and use it daily and haven't changed the batteries yet. GREAT PRODUCT!
This is a great swing. I would reccommend buying rechargable batteries because it BURNS through 4 D batteries in a few days.
Must Have Product
We absolutely LOVED this product! We took this swing frame everywhere we went - to Grandparents' house, to the pool, to the beach, you name it! This swing really came in handy when our daughter had acid reflux as an infant as well. She could safely sleep in her infant car seat in the swing in peace. As a mom of one, and expecting a second child, I would recommend this product to anyone. We can't wait to use it again! If you have a Graco Infant Car Seat, this is a must have accessory!!
Let me down!
3/23/2011 by Mamiknowitall from NYC
Well when I first bought this swing adapter for our baby it was everything I expected it to be, it rocked, vibrated, played music (even though we never really used these features). The swinging is what I needed, but just after 3 months of use the swing just stopped rocking:( sooo sad!
Works like a charm!
3/18/2011 by WebbWife from Fort Stewart, GA
I got this because my month old daughter HAD to be swung in her car seat to fall asleep. we got this and my husband no longer had to swing her manually! :)
Great addition to my son's graco snugride
12/26/2010 by FMR1stTimeMommy from Magnolia, DE
This is such a neat and handy swing, especially when we get home and my son is asleep. I gave it 4 stars for the features because the music and vibrating controls are under the foot of the carseat and hard to access, but it's not a big deal for me. The motor for the swing feature is also a little loud, but again not a big deal for me. Overall, I love this swing!!
Great Small Portable Swing for the SnugRide!
12/25/2010 by CentralNJMom2011 from Central Jersey
I bought this product from Walmart at a great price with free shipping, and it is now my favorite baby product. I have a small apartment, and this swing takes up only a little amount of space (about the same amount as my SnugRide 35). The swing provides a place to store the baby's SnugRide and uses the seat's 5-point harness to keep her safe when in use. The swinging action works like a charm, though on lower settings I have to give the swing an initial push. The swing is also highly portable and fits easily into my car's trunk. I have read some product reviews complaining that the music and vibration buttons were difficult to adjust as they are close to the ground, but I did not find this to be the case. The swing is also v-e-r-y sensitive about battery placement, and won't work unless it is installed precisely. I am not a fan of the swing's nature sounds and loud vibration setting, but the music is nice. Overall, given that it is small, highly portable, works great, and is sold at a fantastic price, this swing is a must-have in my book!
12/16/2010 by An anonymous customer from Florida
Excellent quality you would expect from Graco. The price was great. We purchased another baby swing and was unhappy. It was too late to return it, and we didn't want to spend a lot of money. This worked out great because it works with the Graco infant car seat we already owned. The features (music, vibration and swing) are excellent, and it gives us a place to store the car seat when not in use so it's not setting on the floor. Very pleased.
Perfect for travelling
Nice to have in your trunk, for those on the go!
Very Helpful Product
This is a really nice product. I think it was designed quite well. I haven't had trouble with it swinging. The fast setting on mine is quite fast. The only reason I rated the functionality a 4 stars is because I think the music and nature sounds should be adjustable as far as volume is concerned. Mine seems to be rather loud. Too loud for when I am trying to get baby into sleep mode. It hasn't been a deal breaker at all though and I think the product is VERY useful. I put my baby in it before I am getting ready to leave and it makes getting out the door with my 4 year old easier.
9/8/2010 by sivaraman from houston, TX
it works well on our small apartment. owns this product for a week.couldn't able to comment on the battery life. we need to push initially in order to start swinging. motor give some noise but our son doesn't really care about it. we have snugride 32 and it fits well with this swing.vibration and sound are ok. overall, for a small apartment, this is a space saver. and easily can be taken to any places. image in the website can be misleading. it is only 2 foot tall when assembled and with car seat installed. not in the height of full size swing. but it does the job pretty well. our son sleeps in this swing for few times.( he usually needs our shoulder to sleep) overall, i'm satisfied with this purchase.
7/25/2010 by WorldsGreatestMomOf4
I love this swing. It is so neat. I can take it anywhere. It was very easy to put together. I have twins and they both love it. Great find.
difficult to use features
This is a durable and well made product, the only problem is it sits so low to the ground that you almost have to sit down to do anything with it and the controls for the vibration and sound are difficult to get to even then, great product just be ready to sit down to turn it on!
This swing is awesome!
I registered for this swing and got it at my baby shower. My son is 3 weeks old now, and he sleeps in the swing almost every night. He sleeps for a few hours at a time, and if he does wake up, the vibration and sounds make him fall back asleep pretty quickly. The batteries last a lot longer than I would think they would, too. I do keep it on high though, because it does slow down a lot on lower settings. The high setting is a perfect speed, it's not too fast.
3/16/2010 by ToddlerAndTwinBabyMomma from Everett, WA
Due to the other reviews, I was worried having the larger Graco SafeSeat AND a large four month old baby. I just put my baby who was fussing in it for the first time. She was asleep in less than two minutes! I also have the sweet peace and butterfly papasan swings. Those also have their uses but have never put my baby to sleep as fast as this did. I guess maybe the old back and forth swing is best. It does make some noise but it is no louder than my other swings. It seems to handle the weight just fine. I do wish it could plug into the wall!
THIS PRODUCT IS FABULOUS. MY 2 MONTH OLD LOVES IT. NOT TO MENTION THAT IT'S ANOTHER PLACE TO STORE THE CAR SEAT IN THE HOUSE. IT IS A LITTLE LOUD BUT MY BABY DOESN'T MIND IT. IF ANYTHING ELSE HE PACIFIES HIM.
Very Helpful Product
1/18/2010 by erinelyse21 from Saco, Me
Its nice to have a swing that will last until she in her infant carseat, most swings they sick of quickly. Super easy to set up, 5 minuets maybe. No tools just snap in stubs like tents.
Good alternative to full swing
I'm glad we bought this product. We have the Graco Snugride (Tango in the Tongo version) and it fits perfectly and folds up easily for storage or transport. Very convenient for taking my sleeping newborn from the car and into the house while I unpack groceries. She doesn't even wake up. She loves the vibrate setting, but we don't really use the music/sounds option. She also loves sleeping in the swing, but I wish there was a way to not have to fasten her in so snugly like you do with the carseat because she's not as comfortable. I also took one star off because it would have been nice if the swing mechanism had a thirty minute timer like the vibration and music do. Also, on low setting the swing isn't powerful enough and the carseat just sits still making clicking noises. Battery life is excellent for both the vibration and swing mechanism - my infant is now seven weeks old and we haven't had to change batteries yet!
Wish we had it earlier!

This swing has been great since nothing seems to calm our children like their carseats. Whether we're swinging them or driving around in the car, it's great to have somewhere to put them without having to disturb them by getting them out of the carseat. I was impressed with the speed of the swing and the small amount of space it takes up.
11/19/2009 by FinickyShopper2005 from Central PA
Definetely recommend this to anyone who owns the Graco carseats that fit in the swing. I almost never use it when getting back from a trip, but when he's fussy and tired when I know we'll be heading somewhere soon, I use it so I won't have to move him into it later! My only problems are that the swinging motion isn't actually that strong, and you have to give it a push sometimes, and the water sounds that it plays are pretty annoying. The vibration is fantastic, though! Great product!
No problems here
7/28/2009 by MaddysNana from Albany, NY
I set up the Snugride Carseat swing as soon as I got it home. The hardest part was opening the compartment doors for the batteries! (I never did get the compartment for the music/vibration unit open, which didn't bother me.) A lot of people reported that they just couldn't get this swing to work. One thing I advise people to do, is make sure the batteries are installed according to the visual guide stamped on the compartment... NOT the diagram in the instruction book! I made that mistake... I interpreted the diagram in the manual to be exactly opposite of what is correct, and the swing wouldn't work. When I corrected the polarity of the batteries, it worked like a charm. My 4 month old granddaughter is somewhere around 13 lbs. now, and the swing speed control is only turned about halfway to the maximum speed, and it works great! I don't think it's overly loud as some reviewers reported, either! Wish I'd purchased it a couple months ago!!
7/12/2009 by tamace from ny
product fell apart while constucting it very bad quality
A true God-send!
I have been hoping that someone would make a product like this, and I was pleasantly surprised when I found this device! Not only does it make transferring my baby from car seat to swing an unnecessary interruption, but it is portable. I've been able to easily pack it in the car for trips to family members' homes, assuring that my baby can nap in any environment. I recommend it to everyone I know with an infant.
Graco Snug Ride Swing
6/23/2009 by BackinGeorgia from South Georgia
Funny how products show back up in your life!!! My husband and I were going to put this on my registry back in O7 when we were expecting,but decided against it and put another swing on our registry instead. Two years later, my sister-in-law has a bundle of joy and due to her limited space, I knew just what she could use. She told me that this gadget is GREAT and she LOVES IT!!!! I stand by Graco products and I think that from now on she will too!!!!
Baby on the go!
6/16/2009 by TristanMichaelsMommy4 from PA
I love this product. My son is 3 months old and he loves his car seat. I didn't know about this b4 my baby shower...I wish I had. During the school year I was running around picking up the older kids and the baby would be in the middle of his nap when school let out. So I would just have him nap in this and when it was time to pick up the big kids it was no problem and when we got back I put him back on this swing base. Is strong, works well and I haven't had any problems with it. It swings at a fast speed--I haven't had a problem with it slowing down. I am buying one for my pregnant sister in law and I would recommend this product to anyone.
Great Deal, innovative product
5/12/2009 by BenjaminsMomRachel from Orem, UT
This swing cost lots less than any other swing and it automatically goes with the decor. It has all the features of a "normal" baby swing (sounds, speed control) and you can move the carseat with a sleeping baby directly from the car to the swing and keep them sleeping a little longer. This swing doesn't take up much space and was really easy to put together; everything just snaps into place!
5/1/2009 by SchaunsMommy from MA
This is a great product for anyone w/ a snugride infant car seat. My son loves the multiple speeds of the swing and the vibration setting is also a plus. We have a small place, so the fact that it is small and portable is also a huge plus for us.
4/21/2009 by newmomfromcanada from Canada
After reading the reviews on this product I had doubts about buying it but I decided to go ahead and buy it anyways and see for myself. So far I love it. We brought it to the cottage and it was perfect. it fit in my suitcase. I also use it at home and it works great. Camping season is coming and I will also be bringing it along. It stopped swinging once for me and it was because the blanket that was in it was too bulky. I also noticed that if you put the car seat handle down it works much better. The only thing that I am disapointed about is the price. For something so simple it shouldn't cost that much. But overall great product.
4/9/2009 by Luminai from Dallas, TX
What a concept Graco has come up with!! I read other reviews and was a bit hesitant on purchasing. I'm not sure what others are doing wrong but this item swings just fine. Sooo convenient.
well worth the money
4/6/2009 by Tbazoo from Tulsa, OK
We bought this item, b/c we were trying to keep our house from getting cluttered with "stuff". We love it so much we bought a second one for our babysitter's house. It's so easy and folds up nicely...it would be nice of it had some kind of latch to keep the swinging part from swinging when you are carrying it from place to place, but that is such a minor detail compared to the benefits.
4/3/2009 by mubbs from Bloomington In
This was very easy to assemble and is great to travel with. It is great to bring a sleeping baby in from the car and put them directly into the swing without awakening them...great idea and great price
a definate buy
3/30/2009 by cantchooseaname
We purchase this product prior to my daughter being born in May and were very happy with it. My daughter grew so quickly though that it stopped swinging her after a few months, which was fine becuase the vibrate function still worked and we rocked her with our feet. This product though is definately worth every penny - it is perfect because: you always have a place to put your car seat; it travels easily with you wherever you want to go (ours was always grandma's house); it has both vibrating and music functions, which i thought that we wouldn't need HA!; and it packs away so nicely when your child out grows it. It was so nice to be able to slide it into the closet when it was all folded up and then not give it another thought until our next one arrives. When she fit in it, we took it everywhere with us and she really liked it.
3/28/2009 by Augustjewel78 from Myrtle Beach, SC
My son, whom is 1 1/2 mo, loves this item. He is not ready for his bouncy or swing, but put him in this and he is asleep in no time. It also helped sooth him with his colic. It was very easy to put together, stays swinging, vibration makes him think he is riding in the car! Money well spent!
3/17/2009 by rykysmom from West Virginia
Really easy to set up and take along to visit family and its lightweight. Vibration and nature sounds switches are in a hard to reach spot. Swing arm makes a clicking noise. It's simple and keeps my son sleeping for a little while. Although it's less expensive than most swings, you still don't get alot for your money.
Too Loud-bring batteries to test before you buy!
1/20/2009 by CautiousLovinMama from Montgomery
First I am glad I got it on clearance for 13. and some change. It's a blessing to have something and for it to have not cost the regular price. The only thing I don't like about it is it is loud- the part that swings the swing makes a very loud clicking noise that freaks my baby out and he is used to loud noises in my house from my other kids but this noise uggh. I still use it I just can't turn it on. I have to keep pushing the swing myself and my baby likes it just fine that way - without the noise.
Not what I had hoped for
12/31/2008 by JarretsMom from Effingham, IL
This swing was not what we had hoped for. We thought this would be perfect for our two month old son because he always fell asleep in the car but never stayed sleeping once we were in the house. However, when we snapped the carseat in because of the way the frame was it made the seat tip back and our son did not like this. Also, the motion of the swing was not fast or large enough for our son's taste. He actually got more upset when we used this. We are going to return this item because the motion is more of a tipping back and forth than swinging forward and back. It seemed to always make our 6 week old spit up. This was not at all the life saver we thought it would be. We ended up couging up the extra dough and buying the regular swing which he likes much better.
12/17/2008 by Doctormother
I bought this based on the reviews and for the reason that I didn't have to buy a full swing and could use my Graco car seat. It is very easy to set up and the car seat clicks into the base quickly with 1 hand. The swing works but runs through the 4 C batteries quickly and sometimes runs down the speed. I have to constantly check it to make sure the swing is still swinging. It also makes a "clack clack" sound I suppose to mimic the old wind up swings. It doesn't bother the baby or me but other family members find it annoying. The other features - vibration and lullaby music/water sounds are the exact same as on my Graco soothing bouncer seat. The baby doesn't like the vibration at all.
great baby swing
12/8/2008 by DamiansGrandma from Ft. Lauderdle, FL
Purchased whole set (stroller, car seat, etc.). Great space saver and wonderful idea in making a whole set.....fewer items to purchase for baby. Awesome value for your buck. Baby is not born yet, but my kids have the swing up and ready ....its so cute we couldnt leave it in the box!
12/5/2008 by Jikki21 from Asheville, NC
My husband and I bought this for our son who LOVES to swing. We needed something to take with us on vacation, to grandma's house, etc. We love that our car seat fits into this portable swing. It keeps our son asleep after a car ride also. You can adjust the speed easily (it will go pretty fast at high speed- our son loves that!). It's easy to put the car seat in and out of. There aren't any "bells and whistles" to this swing and I probably wouldn't use it as my only swing or for everyday use, but it's great for travel and occasional usage. I would certainly recommend this swing!
12/4/2008 by goodson25 from Texas
So portable and my baby loves it. The music and the vibration is just an added bonus!!!
A very helpful product
11/17/2008 by HannasMommy from Knoxville, TN
My only dislike is that it's not very compact. You can make it more compact by taking some of the pieces off, but there is no place to put the parts if you take them off. There should be a bag to put the swing in to make for easier more compact storage. Other than that it's a great product. I would definitely recommend to other people.
11/14/2008 by katslife from Spring Grove, IL
I love this swing - we never even bought a larger sized swing - we used this with the car seat. It made great transition from car ride to home when my son fell asleep in the car we could easily bring him in and pop his car seat into the swing.
11/10/2008 by lillysmama from vermont
I hate this swing. I bought it because I live in a small apartment. It is very loud,and it stopped swinging my daughter when she hit 10 LBS. Very very cheap.
11/9/2008 by jricks83 from Jonesboro, IN
This is a very good idea, if it worked. I just loved the idea of this swing, but it doesn't work. The only way it swings is if you push it yourself, and keep pushing it. I would love to return it, but I don't have the packaging.
Harvey Karp was right
Having read "The Happiest Baby on the Block" we wanted to try a swing for our slightly fussy 4 week old daughter to see if we could get the fabled "extra hour of sleep". The swing worked like a charm and she slept longer immediately. The mechanism is little noisy (although our daughter doesn't mind and we are not in the same room), and we don't use the built in sounds but those are minor issues. It is great value for money and the fact that it is compatible with our car-seat means we will take it away with us.
10/31/2008 by txmami from California
This product is easy to setup and great for small spaces. Definitely would recommend this product to others.
swing doesn't swing
10/18/2008 by lovedogsandkids from nv
I really like the idea of this swing, however it doesn't seem to swing very well. It swings without the baby, but as soon as I put him in it the swinging stops. Even when I start it over it won't continue on its own. The vibrator works well, but the music is so soft that it can hardly be heard. I've changed batteries several times in 2 weeks and it doesn't seem to make any difference.
Graco Snug Glider
Great idea for a swing and cheaper than many others. Ours will only swing at highest speed, however. It is on carpet, which may make a big difference, but I'd like better use of the swing control/dial.
Graco - SnugGlider Infant Car Swing
9/14/2008 by dani6nv from Kingman, AZ
I got this for my 4-mos old grandson. While it works great with the car-seat it does not work well with the snuggle-glide seat. You have to put it in backwards & then it doesn't rock. Also, the mechanism that makes it rock is way louder than I though it would be. I often wind up swinging the seat by hand so that the clicking noise doesn't upset my grandson. I like that it's portable & light-weight. The sound and massage features work really well.
Excellent Alternative to swing
9/2/2008 by contentedcustomer from Minnesota
This product made me one happy Grandma...I bought it because with my new grandson coming over it was a hassltle to bring his swing along with everything else. With this little device you set the car seat in, it snaps tight, you turn it on and it is instand rock a bye baby. I will even just turn on the music or the nature sounds when the little one is doing his tummy time on the floor. When we are done we fold it up and store it under the bed. Great item for traveling too. The baby always needs his car seat so you have a swing whereever you go..
Not a good product
8/28/2008 by LRSR from Enid, OK
I had to return mine. It wouldn't stay swinging.
Easy to Use but loud
8/9/2008 by Preemie2008 from Connecticut
It was easy to assemble. Some reviews speak of the loud click sound made when you put the seat in the swing. That is comparable to the sound the seat makes when placed in the car seat base. When the swing is on, it makes a clicking sound when moving forward and backwards. It is a little annoying but you get used to it. The transition from vechicle to swing is awesome. NO need to wake the baby! Especially if your's likes to sleep in the carseat like mine does. I recommend the product as well as the snap and go stroller base.
8/8/2008 by mse04 from ohio
this thing is a lifesaver... and a space saver too! but definately not a battery saver. my daughter LOVES the vibrate feature. i am considering getting a plug in swing because i am tired of buying batteries... but i know i will still have to use this because nothing else has vibrate. and its handy to go from car to swing without waking her up.
A very helpful product
8/7/2008 by ALovingParent from Friendswood, TX
This product helps alot when at home or traveling other places. You can leave your infant in the car seat and just place it onto the swing with no problems without taking your infant out of the car seat. This product comes in handy and is very helpful. I'm really enjoying it.
Returned this product
8/6/2008 by TawneyA from California
This product sounded like a good thing using the Graco car seat as a swing seat for friends with newborn twins . Unfortunately once the car seat with infant was in place it would not swing. At this point the infants twins born prematurely are still quite small so it's not like the weight was excessive. We returned this product and bought an actual swing.
Perfect for Travel and Home Use
8/6/2008 by Lulubabylinzi from Denton, TX
This is an excellent product. I use this in my home and when I travel overnight. It has a vibrator, plays music and an adjustable speed. It is also very durabull. I would recommend this product to any parent.
I love this
7/9/2008 by mommyjan2005 from Central, NJ
I love this swing, its perfect for on the go. I keep it in my car so I have it where ever I go. Its great to take to the park when we go this away my 3yr old can play and my baby gets the movment shes craves. This is a must have for any parent with a baby who needs/craves constant movment. I dont know what I'd do without it!!!
I want one for every room in the house!
6/29/2008 by poetry13tao from Fort Wayne, IN
I bought this Graco car seat swing for work. I take my four month old daughter to work with me 4 days a week and I wasn't getting anything done. Now, she plays in her car seat, sleeps in her car seat, and generally hangs out while I am working. I have a playpen at work that I alternate between with the swing. However, you can't beat the ease of picking up the car seat at the end of the day, with your sleeping angel securely fastened inside, and heading home. IT is very easy to assemble and use. It is also easy to transport, but I never want to head to work without it. So, I'm thinking about getting another one to keep in the minivan!
Pleased with the product
6/22/2008 by Danyelle from Piqua, OH
I was pleased with the product. My daughter is almost 6 weeks old and tends to like being rocked to sleep but will then wake up when you lay her down sometimes. When I know she is really tired but won't sleep in her bed, I'll put her in her swing and that does the trick. She doesn't seem to like the vibration all that well and the music isn't very loud, so you would have to play it in a completely quiet room in order to hear it. Other than that, I am glad I purchased this product.
Excellent Infant car swing

I love it and my baby loves it. Its so easy to use. The music and sound buttons are so nice and it is very duriable. I could put the baby in the swing and not even take his out of the car seat and if he's sleeping, he stays sleeping. I love it.

i got it home set it up with no problem but then when i turned the swing on i pushed it to get it started like the directions indicated. it swung for about a minute. i changed the speed still same results, tried a new set of batteries still nothing. needless to say i returned it.
Get right away while baby is little

Something to get and use right away while your baby is still little. When they start moving around more, it is not as practical. Very convenient for on the go parents, or to leave at the grandparents. We keep our bundle me in the seat to make it cozy for her. The only thing that would make it more efficient would be a different way to tell how fast you have set the pace for. Instead it just has a roll knob and it is hard to tell and slow down if going to fast.

We purchased this swing to use in our hotel during a trip. The swing didn't fit into our luggage while assembled, but it's totally easy to take apart and put back together again. Our 12 week old weighs 16 pounds and this swing took his weight with grace-- we did, however, have to keep it turned to high or it would slow and eventually stop-- but on high it kept him swinging at a very good speed! Some reviewers complained about the music-- and while it doesn't have the capacity to play stereo-quality tunes, it does fine for what we needed it to do. Our baby thought it sounded fine, and he loves music. The vibrate function sounds a bit like a muffled jack-hammer... but I don't think the baby minded. If anything, it distracted him when he was upset. I think you just have to remember that this is just a very simple swing, nothing more, nothing less-- we think it did well. It travels great, is simple to use, and the batteries lasted longer than we are used to. We are pleased and it will get plenty of use!
Exactly what I wanted

I got this after realizing that my second daughter loves her car seat. I had read the reviews and despite some of the negative ones thought that it would suit our needs. I was right! She sleeps in there for at least one nap a day and sometimes at night as well. She is 10 weeks right now. The speed dial is a little hard to adjust to the right speed, but once I found the speed that works for us I marked it with some nail polish:) The dials on the bottom for vibrate and noise also seem to be in an awkward position, but then I suppose that is where the vibrate is coming from. I've found that we can have this swing at speed that is not too fast, not too slow. The only thing that I am disappointed with is the fact that the vibrate and noise stop after 30 min and that sometimes wakes my daughter, but even though, I would highly recommend this swing if your little one likes their car seat. We use this swing several times a day and have still not had to change the batteries.

i thought this was the coolest idea ever. however when i brought my baby home all she wanted was to be held. and once she was comfortable with not being held and we could put her in the swing, her weight was too much for it to work properly. and by weight i'm only talking about 10lbs. the swing works fine without her in it and when she was 7lbs. but now it will only swing if it is on a super high speed, which freaks out the baby. so the swing has gone back into the closet and i have purchased a new one.

I love this swing because when we come home we can put our baby in this swing using the car seat and you don't have disrupt her sleeping and she loves it at that time. But, if she is awake - she doesn't partically like the swing then. I have an expensive battery operated swing also - she doesn't like that at all. She actually loves the Graco crank swing the best. I can't figure out why she likes it the best - - all I know is she loves it. But, this particular swing has its purpose and I am glad that I have it.
worth the money

my daughter has trouble laying in her bed, so she sleeps in her car seat which makes this swing perfect. i will use the swing to put her to sleep, take the car seat off the swing, and put the car seat in her bed without having to wake her up.
Nice travel swing

We got this for a shower gift... it is great for taking on trips to grandmas etc. We have a full size at home so we don't use it daily. We do like that it has the vibrating etc... so its like a bouncy seat/swing all in one. If your limited on space it makes a nice swing.

My son is 3 months old and we have a separate bouncer and swing and he dislikes them both. Then I saw this product which combines swinging and vibration and he loves it, plus he is snuggly in his car seat. He falls asleep within minutes when I put him in and now I can actually get a little done.
My son falls asleep in the car and used to wake up pretty soon after we got home because the movement had stopped. With the swing, though, in not having to take him out of his car seat, the movement continues and he can stay asleep for at least an hour longer than he normally would. We also put him in it when he's content and I'm busy and need my hands free, and he'll stay content much longer than if I lay him down.
