My baby boy likes being rocked and the swing we have has lasted through three babies and does not look safe to me anymore. Since we are in the market for a new soothing mechanism, I was wondering if moms and dads prefer the traditional baby swing, or the baby seats that slide back and forth? Any input here will help influence our purchase! --Chris, Strongmoms facilitator
I still like the swing. Can't beat it really and they can use it for a long time. Some of my kids sat in the swing until they were 7 months old!
SWING..... SWING..... SWING... We got a mamaroo baby seat for our daughter. It does all sorts of different motions and plays music (programmed and ipod) it was the coolest little baby seat... and she HATED it. I wound up having to sell the darn thing because she would not sit in it. The next day i took that cash and bought a swing and it was a hit!!! for the first time in months i was able to put my daughter down without her freaking out. I will always choose a swing over the other seats.
I'm with Brinny and MommyRN, Swing!
Swing it shall be! Thanks ladies!
No problem! Sometimes even with all the newest inventions, the old ones work the best!
