Does your baby swing go front/back or side/side?

My mom wants to get a swing for the baby - they go in two directions! Who knew? LOL

Which way does yours swing? Is one preferable for any reason?

  • Ours went back and forth. It worked for us.

    My best friend's goes side to side. It looks really comfy, wish i could fit in there, lol.

  • Both. By simply turning the seat it will change the direction in which the baby lays and thus change how it swings. I paid around $150 4 years ago.

  • mine does both.

    DD1 would only swing side to side. She had motion issues and the traditional back and forth swinging freaked her out.

    My other 2 didn't/don't care one way or another
