    Our LO didn't exactly like it, and no sooner had we got it than the swing lost it's 'swing'. A few other members had the same problem. I didn't mind because we got ours when argos messed up the pricing and it was £35 or something :haha:

    We had one and our LO loved it for the first 3 months. It was invaluable for me, meaning I could get on with things whilst LO was swinging away. However, we didnt use the canopy or the MP3 connector, or the inbuilt music, it was just the swing as it was we used. It seems like a lot of money for just a swing, but for us it was the compact size which drew us to it.

    We had one and it didn't swing at all, changed it for the astro cradle one which, after returning 3 dodgy ones in a row (!) is now great!

    It was invaluable during the first 3 months. Didn't really use the canopy though because it was annoying to try and duck the baby under it to get into the swing. Never used the ipod connection either but definitely a good addition.

    I think Daisy would have been too heavy for it at about 2 weeks old. I wish I'd bought a swing though, she wouldn't sleep anywhere!

    We have one and she loves it, especially the light canopy! I thank god for that, if it wasn't for that swing I would have never pee'd, showered, eaten etc!!!
