We put two of these on our registry, as my wife liked the color and the reviews (at the time) were favorable. We received both. Great! At first, we noticed they didn't swing at a consistent speed, but would speed up or slow down at times. They worked okay, with some minor "clicking" noises and other occasional issues (inconsistent speed, stopping at times or slowing down to a snail's pace, etc.) but overall we would have rated them 4/5. After a few weeks, they really started to slow down. Keep in mind, our girls arrived early, at just over 6 lbs. each, and at 5 months weigh just over 13 lbs. We aren't putting them on top of each other in the same swing. Weight isn't the issue.
Shortly after slowing down, one altogether stopped swinging without our nudging it. We returned that to Amazon for a replacement. The replacement worked better, but not by much. A few more weeks passed. We again went to Amazon, unsastisfied with the poor preformance, but we really didn't want to go with another model as we liked the way these swings would swing and didn't want to mix things up on the babies. Two more swings arrived. This time, one was the wrong color, and the other was dead out of the box. We replaced both, and are currently using those, hesistantly. One works great. The other not so much.
All in all, we've gone through, what, 7 of these swings? Amazon keeps replacing the replacements, but I feel like I'm on some list somewhere. I actually got an email about all of the returns. Very friendly, but I can't help but feel like they're I'm going to try to log in one day and find out my account has been closed.Read more ›
Settings 1-3 were useless for my baby who is 11 lbs. If the swing cannot maintain the level selected the motor speeds up and then slows down. It does this repeatedly so I just kept it on 4. Settings 4-6 were identical but I felt safest on 4. Regardless of the level you choose, the motor is extremely noisy. It sounds like it is struggling to go uphill and it clicks every time it goes back. From the other reviews it seemed as though this was normal but to me it was too loud.
One week later, the swing needed me to help push it along so it could maintain the proper speed setting. At this point, the motor was even louder so I knew something was not right. I contacted Graco support via phone and I was told they didn't have the parts in stock but they could get me the left leg that had the motor in it. I told them that was the only part I really needed and they said it would take at least four weeks! Now who here can wait even a few days?Read more ›

Let's get the negatives out of the way first. The speaker on this swing is horrible; even compared to the standard baby toy speaker, this one is exceptionally bad. The music is hollow and the nature sounds are worse. The babbling brook sounds like a leaky toilet and the rain sounds like static. The swing itself is loud. I was surprised that it made any noise, as many of the larger swings of this type are silent. I actually find the monotonous swinging sound kind of soothing and relaxing.
The footprint of the swing isn't that much smaller than a full sized baby swing, this one is only shorter. The nice thing about the low swing is I can sit on the floor comfortably next to baby while she is swinging. With the full sized swing, I'm too tall standing but too short sitting, so I always end up on my knees which can get uncomfortable.
The seat is very plush and deep, so I feel like the baby is very secure in the swing, even without the easy-to-use five point harness system. The weight recommendations for this swing is between 5.5 lbs and 25 lbs. My daughter is 6 months and almost 17 lbs and fits comfortably in the swing. I wish the manual included a suggested length maximum, but only says to discontinue use when infants "attempts to climb out or reaches 25 pounds."
My full sized swing rocks with a left to right motion; this one uses front to back motion, which I think is more akin to the way a baby would be rocked in your arms. She enjoys being in the swing and has no trouble falling asleep while swinging.Read more ›
