baby swing suggestions?

I would like to know what kind of swing is best for baby. What kind did yours like? The forward/backward swing, the side-to-side swing, what brand? Thanks for any suggestions.

  • I have a swing that went back and forth and also side to side. My first daughter loved it going side to side, it was my life saver when the house needed cleaning. My second daughter didnt really like it at all, she was colicky and wanted to be held most.

  • I had a regular full sized forward swinging swing. If I had another baby, I'd just invest in the travel swing because it takes up less space and it always seemed I could really use it when I wasn't at home.

  • I have the Fisher Price Papasan Cradle swing, it is wonderful!!! It swings side to side and front to back and it has a cute mobile on it with bears that hang, and at night lights can be turned on and stars shine everywhere. I def recommend!!!!

  • I have the Fisher Price rainforrest swing, and my dd loves it. She is 9 months old and still likes to be in her swing every once in a while. It goes back and forth and side to side. We use the side to side and it is good. The best feature of this swing is that it plugs in!!! We never have to put batteries in it.
