Thanks to my sisters-in-law AppleBlossom has a Graco Classic Pooh Let's Fly a Kite Swing. It is a lifesaver! There are times when being on her back does not work, being held does not work, and tummy naps are no longer an option. When my whits-end is coming and she just is so unhappy, that is only one of the times when the swing has been so useful. Other times she is eager for it and enjoys the movement and looking around the room. Sometimes she will fall asleep in the swing and then stay out for longer naps that are fabulous for Mama time. I will scoop her up while she's out and put her down in the crib and when she wakes up she is all smiles and cooes.
The infant head support is great for supporting her neck when she is soundly asleep and for when she was smaller and not quite able to support her neck herself. The 5-point harness keeps her secure where I never have to worry about her toppling sideways or otherwise. At this time, she will look at the mirror, but does not really interact with the spinning ball, but in the future as she grows I expect she will.
At one point we had something wrong with the motor making a squealing noise, I contacted Graco and within two weeks they had us taken care of. I could not be happier with our entire experience thus far with this swing. I highly recommend it to any and everybody.
