1. The swing really soothed our son and helped him fall asleep and establish a daily nap schedule.
2. Sometimes you need to restrain your little one while you do something frivolous for yourself like, oh I don't know - eat. But if he or she isn't strong enough to sit in a pack n play, then a swing fits the bill well.
3. If the swing has a mobile or some other point of interest attached, then your baby can begin learning to focus on, follow and reach for objects while playing in the swing.
So now that we've established that a swing is mandatory baby gear, how does the Ocean Wonders rate? Very well except for a few minor points.
* Very sturdy and durable
* Really good activities above and in front of baby keep him/her happy and interested
* Multiple seat settings, both in terms of recline and in terms of the swing direction, i.e. front-to-back vs. side-to-side. This second point is surprisingly rare in swings, but you want to have all options when your feeling out your baby's preferences.
* Good battery life - we went almost two months between changes using it daily
* LOUD motor - you get used to it after a while as it's almost hypnotic, but when we first turned ours on, I thought that we must have gotten a defective one. After going back to the store and hearing the display (it hadn't had batteries when we initially bought), we realized that that's just how it is. It's comparable volume-wise to an average dishwasher running.Read more ›
Buy this swing with confidence, you (and your baby) will not be sorry!
What really disappoints me, is that my son is a big baby. He is over 20 lbs now at 5 months old. He would love to continue using this swing, but it looks like it's going to fall apart now when he is in it. Going back and looking at the weight limit, it's only good for up to 25 lb babies. So here I have a 5 month old baby, that still needs to be swinging and no swing safe/strong enough to hold him. I recently purchased the Fisher Price Smart Stages 3 in 1 swing (Tightrope print) and love it. It goes up to 40 lbs and I wish I would have started off with it from the beginning. It would have saved us $100. Before you register, think of how long you would like your baby gear to last. I was clueless.
