  • about the swing i really don't know, but as far as pampers yeah they are not really good because the gel tends to stick on the baby, and i just started trying huggies and i think i'm gonna yet look for another brand since those have some elastic band on the sides but it makes my daughters clothes wet, so it doesn't really protect much. you are very welcome and congratulations.

  • Swings, I liked evenflo or graco! Diapers: pampers gave MY dd a diaper rash every time, Huggies worked the best and it took about 4-6 months to figure out her combination.

  • My swing is a Fisher Price Rain forest Open top cradle swing. I 100% recommend it! It swings three different ways, has a ton of different music on it. and a mobile. I also used Luvs! They are the only brand I ever used that did not leak. Believe me I've tried all diapers and my son can pee and poop through everything. EXCEPT luvs. lol. Congrats on your baby, and good luck. I hop[e I helped.

  • I have the fisher price rainforest swing (the full size one, not the travel swing) and I love it. I used it up until she was about 24 pounds or so. It definitely didn't swing as well towards the end with that much weight, lol - but it worked! Tons of people have them and are looking to sell them on craigslist - mine was used and has been used for a year and still no problems. Good luck!

  • with my first ds we had a cheap swing. and he loved it.. babies dont care about price or gadgets! with my 2nd we had one like the poster above.. my ds also loved it.. but not for the gadgets but becuase it was a swing!! find something that is within your bidget and go for it...

    also with both the boys LUVS were the best diapers...

  • I agree also with the Luvs diapers. They are THE BEST leak proof diaper on the market.

  • I also used the rainforest swing, and both of my babies loved it! as far as diapers, i make my own cloth ones, but before that, i loved natural fit huggies.

  • I had terrible experiences with luvs diapers. My son leak out the front back and sides, at different times. I switched of with pampers and huggies. It's a matter of trail and error. You will find one that works for you, or you could go with cloth. As for the swing, I had rainforest one with the leaf umbrella on it. It played several songs and had different speeds. My daughter loved it.
