right. so I m expecting baby number 3. the age gap between #2 & #3 will be 14/15 months. I m a bite worried that I wont have the time to always have my newborn in my arms, so I was looking into getting a cradle swing. but the prices put me down. I know it can only be used for 4/6 months given the baby s weight.



so Iuo how much use did you get of your swing?

A swing was a necessity for me with all of my kids.

I never got one with DS, but I didn't have any other kids. He was perfectly happy in his boppy or in his bouncy seat, if I wasn't holding him. He was an extremely easy baby.

Lifesaver! We had one that went both side to side and forwards and backwards. She loved it!

My kids never really liked their swings . They did like laying on their boppy next to me and I would babywear them. I think you can defenitly condition a baby to sleep in a swing but it was not really my thing

The gap between DD and DS is 15 months. DS is five weeks old and I have yet to use his swing. We actually put it away because it was taking up space. I use a bouncy seat and my sling. If he isn't feeling like being put down (which is most days) I wear him!

When my daughter was a newborn she would cry a lot from tummy issues, the only way she'd ever sleep anywhere besides my arms was in her swing.

My son practically lived in his the first few months. Now at 7 months hes kind of ehhh about it but doesnt mind it if hes sleepy. I had one with my oldest son to and he loved it as well. If I have more kids in the future they will all have swings.

We have the momaroo and it's awesome looking and such a cool item but my daughter really isn't that into it. So now it's a 250 dollar ornament.

That is too much for a swing a least expensive will do.
