Baby Swing

I'm kind of on the fence on whether we should buy one. The last one we had was for DD (6 yrs ago). It was a cheaper type one and the motor ended up making a TON of grinding noises. So now we're on the fence... whether we should buy any swing or not...

IMO, it seems that swings in general are pretty expensive, considering that most babies don't use them for very long. I don't even know if it's worth it to buy a brand new one since they are typically over $100 for even basic models.

I have been looking on Craigslist and have found the Graco Sweetpeace which seems to have decent reviews. It's pretty expensive new (around $170) and I've seen them on CL for around $70-80.

If anyone has any thoughts, advice, opinions on this swing or any others that would be great!! Thanks

We would not have survived Mia as a newborn without her swing. We got ours as a shower gift... I think it was around $150, I would have bought it if it weren't purchased.

I wouldn't have survived EITHER of my kids as newborns without the swing...but of course, it depends on the baby. We bought the FP Aquarium swing for around $100 new, back in '05, and both kids loved it. It's one that swings either side to side or front to back. I think they have them now that you can plug them in, which is GREAT b/c we would go through D batteries like CRAZY with both kids I'd buy 12 packs from Costco about once a month!
Please check out my stuff in the mall, all jeans $50 or under, some NWT! Also, lower price on RM MAB!

Fletch loved his swing until the motor blewout I don't know if it is the different volt of electricity in a Japanese home or if it is a bad motor from the swing. I have the same one as Cassie, but I bought mine on Amazon. I would recommend having one, but because I don't know if it was the swing or my home electricity that ruined it, I wont recommend that one I have.
