Not enough recline

We ended up having to get another bouncer cause this one doesn’t have enough recline or head support and our daughter always end up in a funny position.

So cozy without a huge footprint.

We picked up this bouncer because it was about the smallest bouncer we could find – we wanted something four our infant to hang out in after eating so he didn’t have issues with reflux that we could keep by our bed without stumbling over it. We had another bouncer by Fisher Price that worked OK, but the feet on that bouncer stuck out so far that we were constantly tripping over it. This did the trick and is so much nicer and cozier than our other bouncer. There’s a ton of cushy padding and the fabric is just so soft! The toy bar at the top is removable so when you’re setting baby down and you want him or her to relax instead of being stimulated, you can take that off and just turn on the vibration or music tones for them to calm down a bit. The colors are lovely neutrals and all of the fabric can be removed and thrown into the washing machine. Sometimes the vibrating feature isn’t very strong, but it seems to work ok for our kid.

Love

My daughter loves this and it keeps her calm. I will say that the activity bar is rather close to her face and causes her to cross her eyes a lot so we removed it. Otherwise though, cute.

Satisfied with mine

My daughter loves her bouncy seat. At first, it was the only place (other than our arms) that she would sleep. After her 3rd month she started using the toys and at 5mos we are still enjoying it. The vibration feature is another plus. One tip though the music has two settings, motion activated and continuous play. The continuous play wears the batteries down quickly. Bouncy seats really are “must haves” for parents.

Effective and sturdy, but no bouncing & batteries are not included

The Fisher-Price Cruisin’ Motion Soother does not include 4 D batteries. Rechargeable D batteries could prove be the most economical for frequent users.The soother is well thought over, designed, and manufactured using sturdy plastic – the hallmark of Fisher-Price. It is ergonomic, cushioned, and has capacity of 25 lbs. The base is quite wide to provide stability. However, the center of gravity seems to be relatively high that may undermine the stability when the soother is used by a heavy and fidgety child. However, the cushioning and relatively low height should prevent any harm caused by the fall. A falling child would likely tend to roll out of the seat.Though without bouncing, the soother does well the job of soothing, and has more functions than passive bouncers, but it would benefit, if bouncing was included. The compact size at less than 19 x 17 x 9 inches and low weight under 9 lbs make it easy to transport.

Beautiful soothing carrier

Besides the fact Fisher-Price Cruisin’ Motion Soother, Green/Yellow is motorized to simulate a gentle car ride, Fisher-Price Cruisin’ Motion Soother, has the most pleasing, gentle colors. Softest of mint, pale bule, white with orange toys that will draw attention.(and a rear view mirror.(too cute) The cushion is gentle and all the bases padded and covered with softness. I so look forward to offering this for mommy’s that visit me with new babies.One complaint…where was this product 34 years ago when my hubby and I were driving every night to soothe our babes to sleep? Probably still have the car if we hadn’t put so many miles on it from these endless jaunts. *GIGGLE*Truly a lovely way to make babies and mommies life easier.

Exactly what we expected

We have a lot of kids! That being said, we didn’t get this gem until baby #6 and we love it. We like it better than the bouncy seats because the soothing motion can be turned on and left to do it’s thing. With a bouncy, you have to stay there and bounce it with your hand or foot until the baby gets strong enough to move it on their own. We found that the baby liked this one right from the get go and it has a nice bar across the front with two little toys dangling at the perfect angle for him to bat at with his hands now that he is developing some coordination. We could do without the soothing music, which the baby could care less about. But, the overall product is great. Highly recommend.

Recliner does NOT work properly. For babies less than 20lbs.

The bouncer can be reclined but when the baby is 18lbs the bouncer will recline on it’s own so that the baby is almost flat on it. Like, it snaps on its own… like “click, click” to the lowest recline setting and it scares the baby. At first I thought mine had a defect but then everybody that got one like me had the same issue. My daughter would cry when the bouncer would recline on it’s own because of the lound snap/click. She kept on feeling she was going to fall back. Seriously, it’s better to get a cheaper recliner… it’ll last longer. Also, with my other children I would use the bouncer until they were like 6-9months old. But with this one, not a chance. The bouncer can’t take the weight. Another thing, once the baby starts turning sideways…this bouncer is rolling with them. So for the price and how long it will last, the cuteness and price is so NOT worth it.One more thing, I’m the kind of mom that bounces the bouncer with my feet…like bounce, bounce, bounce…but with this bouncer, the recline level will keep changing on it’s own and it will make a loud snap when it does it and it is soooooo annoying and scary for the baby. Almost like a mini jolt everytime the level changes. Makes you not want to bounce the baby in the bouncher so the recliner doesn’t change… defeats the purpose of being a bouncer.

Poor posture and positioning

I put this chair on my registry from another store for a few reasons. First I thought the idea of the arms with hanging toys was great. And second because of all of the great reviews on the item on many different websites.Once my daughter came I liked the item. I wasn’t able to use it much the first month or two- not because if problems but I had a baby that craved human touch and didn’t like any baby items in the beginning. This does not affect my rating btw. What little I did use it in the first 6-8 weeks was without the arms to avoid over stimulation. From 8-14 weeks she seemed to like the chair, however the toys weren’t at a good angle for her to even look/play with them. Her head was turned awkward to look at them. I had to rig some rings between the two arms and hang toys off those for her to play with them. I thought no biggie. At about 14 weeks she started slouching in the chair significantly. As her weight increased even in the upright setting she was basically completely reclined. She kept ending up sliding down. Her little feet would be resting on the hard battery pack and she could barely kick if I got her excited and smiling. She would start fussing almost immediately after putting her in the chair. I knew it was because of her poor posture and positioning in this item. She was around 12-13 pounds when the issues started – not huge by any means.I hated spending money on another baby item, but I needed to be able to have something to sit her in so I could get a few minutes to do some work around the house or shower. So I caved and bought the really expensive bouncer from that Swedish company. Best decision ever.Besides the poor positioning of my daughter in the chair it’s horrible to travel with. You can’t easily pack it in the car without disassembling it.I can’t recommend this item.I recently tried the chair again just to ensure it wasn’t just a phase (she’s around 16 pounds now) and same thing only worse.Buyer beware!

people are jealous

Everyone loves this bouncer. My DS likes it. I am sure more than any other bouncer, he may just not be a bouncer sort of guy. He liked it for a few weeks, but I think it does not move enough for him. He does sleep well in it when we travel, though. He just prefers swing. He is only 7 wks old and may appreciate it more once he is older. Many of my friends think its awesome and are jealous “where did you get that?” They love the dual bars, the crab and the ability to move things around and that it does not turn off (at least anytime that I have discovered – yet i have not managed to kill the battery!) My friends complain that theirs turn off after 30 min., RIGHT after their child falls asleep and…. the miracle that is vibration stops and child awakes. Battery life is great.Downside- Its giant and does not break down well (that I have discovered) traveling with it is a pain.

Meh.

This swing’s about average in quality and performance, and you get less bang for your buck than with other similarly-featured models.Pros:-relatively decor-neutral and gender-neutral color scheme-removable bouncy seat is handy and replaces an extra piece of gear if you need to seat the baby safely in multiple spaces-plug-in and battery options-fairly easy to assemble (need only a phillps screwdriver for 4 screws; everything else clicks into place-reasonably sturdy-baby versions of classical music are far superior to typical annoying generic baby tunes-toys easily remove from mobile frame and could be replaced with something more engaging.Cons:-loud motor, sounds like a groaning, cranky metronome.-harness seems flimsy-harness padding is really cheap and impractical–the shoulder pads fall of easily, and the weird padding thing on the crotch strap has to have the shoulder straps threaded through each time you use it–totally inconvenient and cumbersome if you’re trying not to rouse a sleepy baby. They’re also just cheap and awkward. Compared to the padded Fisher Price harnesses, they seem like some kind of junky throw-away tote bag you’d get at a convention, and make a decent swing look really cruddy. They’re also uncomfortable for a baby and have to be fairly tight for the baby to feel secure because they’re so narrow. And my baby’s only 14 pounds; I think with a big baby, it would seem like a package tied with twine.-mobile is dull neutral colors with no contrast to attract baby-mobile hangs too low, putting it right in baby’s face when swinging-mobile doesn’t swing out of the way; has to be removed completely-there’s no effort to make the rod and tubular metal frame look more attractive.All and all, I wouldn’t recommend this swing unless it were about half the price. It’s not dangerous or horrible; it’s just uglier and flimsier than other similarly priced swings with the same features. If you’re going to fork out a big chunk of cash, you deserve a better swing. I was really well pleased with the Graco playard/bassinet/basket setGraco Day 2 Night Sleep System, Ardmore, so I know Graco can make great products, but this swing is not one of them. If you’re looking for a swing with a removable seat, music, and plug-in/battery options but much nicer appearance, mobile, and harness (but, admittedly, also has a LOUD motor and the standard awful baby music), I love ourFisher-Price Zen Collection Cradle Swing.

Great swing/bouncer, terrible assembly instructions

The is the second Graco-brand infant swing that I have tried out since the first of the year. This DuetConnect LX is significantly better than the Graco Glider Petite LX, even though the DuetConnect retails for only forty dollars more. It is well worth the upgrade for a better quality swing with bouncer.At the outset, however, I have to criticize Graco for offering yet another product with very confusing assembly instructions. Like the Glider Petite LX, this DuetConnect requires a great deal of painstaking assembly with instructions that appear to have been written by someone largely unfamiliar with the product. A team of two to three adults worked on this off-and-on for a couple of frustrating hours before we finally got it all together. For a long time, we all suspected that we had been shorted four screws — another reviewer, I noticed, thought this also — only to find them “hidden” alongside other materials. Finally, after a great deal of effort, we got this together, and that’s where this review improves.Both the swing and bouncer functions are great and very entertaining for my seven-month-old. Like most swings, this one can work off batteries or by plugging it into the wall, and like most swings, this offers an optional vibration function. I have found that my daughter rarely falls asleep in a swing unless the vibration is turned on. So far, she has twice fallen asleep and slept quite peacefully in this DuetConnect, and she seems much less restless than she did in the Graco Glider Petite LX. Graco makes quality products, some more than others, but they really need to work on better assembly instructions. For a few hours, I was preparing to write a scathing one-star review. Still, I have to recommend this compared to other swing/bouncer combos on the market.

Excellent swing at great price with great features

I’m usually very hesitant to give 5 star reviews on Vine products but this one deserved it. My best friend just had her baby 2 months ago so we drove to her house with this and set it up. I must say that her baby now weighs 11lbs and the max recommended weight is 30lbs. Set up was pretty simple since it came with very clear instructions.I must first say that the price you’re paying for this 2-in-1 product you’d pay quite much more for both products combined. The seat fabric is soft and we loved that it had head support for the baby. We tired out both the swing and bouncer feature and both worked amazing. We loved the 5 point harness and the vibration that we used on the bouncer. The bouncer was also easy to disconnect from the swing. The vibration mode though does need 2 D batteries since the plug in feature is only for the swing. Great feature if you want to take baby from room to room without waking him/her but want to keep your eyes on him/her.The plug in feature is definitely a money saver since most swings run through D batteries pretty quickly if you’re using it on a daily basis. The melodies and nature sounds didn’t sound too tinny but had a nice sound to it and the volume is totally adjustable. It does swing in a side to side motion so be sure that wherever it’s set up that you have room for it to go side to side. We used the 2nd swing speed and that was perfect for her 11lb baby, not too fast or too slow.The recline position was also great for baby and I must say that this can be used with your newborn with the furthest recline position.The mobile though doesn’t rotate on its own but is stationary. Wished that it did rotate but that does not take away from the swing. I definitely recommend this swing.

Worthless/dangerous

Tried it every month with my kiddo, now 7 months old. I agree with other bad reviews that kids lean to the side a little and the whole thing leans almost all the way over. Death trap really. Never walk out of the room because those straps could easily choke a kid if he leans the wrong way. My kid is a great bouncer and stander but this thing flops him to the side so much and his head is heavy so he’s looking at me upside down. I’ll try to post pictures! Just awful awful awful!

NOT SAFE! BEWARE!

My 6.5 month old son LOVES his stand alone jumper, hates laying down, loves his car walker, etc. I thought this would be a great addition to his toys since he’s a jumper and my arms can’t handle all the jumping he likes to do. I insisted we needed a door way jumper and went with this style. It was the only one the store had at the time, but looked cute and fun. To get my son in it took my husband and I otherwise it’s pretty difficult with just one person. Then once he was in he was smiling and having fun, but then it started spinning – not so bad. The real problem though is that he can’t just sit there and play with the toys or "hang out" because leaning any way to one side is super dangerous. He nearly fell over on his head! He’s average height and size so that’s definitely not an issue. This is a poorly designed product. I would not recommend it at all! Even sitting right next to him he couldn’t have fun let alone something I’d trust to step 2 feet away from! DO NOT BUY!!

Baby and I like this Swing

I recently received this swing as a gift for my 2 month old preemie. She LOVES the lights, the rotating stuffed animals, and the sounds. And she seems comfortable in the seat too. The seat snaps into two positions, a reclined position and a sitting position. Additionally, you can set the swing up to go from side to side or forward and backward.I did have an incident last week where we had some power surges here in the neighborhood WHILE we were using this swing. When the power came back on, I tried all the different switches to turn it on and it didn’t work, then later on, it finally did work. This swing has so many switches on it and I admit to being too lazy to read the instructions for all of the functions that each of the switches perform. That said, I don’t know if the failure was user error or a quality issue. It appears to be functioning just fine as of this writing so I think it was me.Another user cites instability of the stand on this swing. I have had no problem with this as I tested it carefully before putting baby in. Also, we leave the swing set up in one place in our house all the time, so we haven’t had have to worry about not opening the stand up all the way beyond the initial setup. This might be more of a concern for someone who needs to put it away and take it back out a lot.I personally like the fact that the mobile, the rocking, and the sounds are independent of each other, so you have a lot of variety to entertain baby with. I LOVE the fact that you can use batteries OR the wall outlet to power this thing. Thank GOODNESS for not being held hostage to battery manufacturers anymore, but having that option if we wanted to use it where electricity isn’t available.I would recommend this swing, but I would check for a reasonable return policy first before buying and keep the packaging for a couple of weeks after you receive it just to be sure you and your baby are happy with it.

So far so good – Starlight Papasan (A Dad’s review)

We’ll this may be a bit premature since we just got the cradle swing yesterday but so far here’s what we think of it.First off it was a cinch to put together. With the instructions next to me I had it assembled and ready in about 30 minutes. It was well packaged and everything went together without a hitch.We bought the Starlight model since it has a plug. (I just can’t understand for the life of me why all of these things aren’t equipped with corded power options, also makes me wonder why these models are all bunched into one review if they have different features).Once it was plugged in we put our daughter in (she is 3 weeks old), set the mobile on with no sounds and set the swing in a front-to-back rocking motion (her favorite when I’m carrying her bassinet) and she almost immediately started to doze off.Our daughter has a weak stomach muscle and spits up quite a bit of juice if we don’t keep her inclined for a while after feeding. In the still position it’s inclined enough to be safe for her tummy and in the side-to-side swing it also seems to be ok. However in the front-to-back motion it leans her almost flat on her back and with-in a few moments she had spit up most of her meal… lesson learned. So the trick for us seems to be; no front-to-back unless she’s already been resting in the inclined position for at least 30 minutes. Once she’ rested this is her favorite motion and puts her to sleep fastest but she doesn’t mind side-to-side either. As a matter of fact she’s sleeping in it next to me on side-to-side right now while I type this and Mom is getting some much needed sleep.THE MOTORI’ve read a few complaints about the noise. There is a clicking sound but I believe that is because the mechanism used to rock the cradle is not a continuous rotating axle that is locked to the swing, instead it seems to be an axle that is independent of the swing arm and pushes the swing arm when it rotates. So the click is the sound of the axle pushing against the swing arm. I consider this a good thing, if the axle was locked to the swing arm then any attempt to stop the cradle by hand while it was on could damage the motor, also starting it from a dead stop would cause some strain. So it seems like a decent alternative (Of course I could be way off base here).The down side is that it doesn’t seem to have much push, granted she’s only 9lbs but I worry about the swing lasting till she’s at the max weight (25lbs according to the manufacturer).I could be wrong and I tell you why, it rocks with the slightest push and is so lubricated and balanced that it continues to rock well for a few seconds even with the motor off. So maybe it doesn’t need much to keep it going once it’s going… we’ll see.From what I’ve read I’m skeptical but I’ve read some reviews here that were so off base I question the source.As far as the noise, it doesn’t bother her, it’s about as loud as a soft finger tap on a table and it’s so rhythmic that we all 3 fell asleep to it but some people are light sleepers, you may want to demo it in a store or something first to see. It also seems to help if you give it a push to get it going once you figure out the timing on the swing, once the cradle is really swinging the noise is minimal.So my only real gripe about the motor is that from the lowest setting to the highest, there’s really no difference.The speed is fine, I’ve read some reviews about people concerned that the swing would catapult their baby across the room, either mine is busted or they got the limited, twin turbo edition by Ferrari because the pace is nice and mellow on ours.But she does like a little jiggle once in a while and while this swing will rock her slowly it’s not speeding up at all. What I’d like to see is a setting for a faster jiggle without as much sway… if that makes sense, less distance more motion, kinda like a car ride which knocks her out almost immediately. The slow swing works great once she’s asleep though.THE SEATThe padding is nice and soft (kind of a hammock effect under her bottom) and I really like that the head rest keeps her floppy noggin from whipping around when she squirms. In her bassinet I find her head cranked to one side a lot and it concerns me… I know, I know, they’re not as fragile as we think they are but it wouldn’t be comfortable for me so I can’t see how she would enjoy it.Anyway, I like the head rest, my only gripe is I wish it was removable. The way it is now the whole seat cover is sewn together and would need to be washed as a whole., though it did clean up nice with some soapy water and a little rinse.THE MOBILEThe sounds are all nice and she doesn’t really seem to have a preference but we like the crickets and night sounds. The music gets on my nerves after awhile.She definitely likes the mobile and at 3 weeks that’s impressive. If you find the pictures I added you’ll see what I mean, she just stares at it and makes faces.I gotta say I also like that the light keeps us able to see her in the dark so we can tell if she’s awake and her eye’s are open or she’s just grunting/giggling in her sleep again.There are enough options to get it working just about anyway you’d like, lights and mobile, mobile only, different sounds or songs, volume control and the seemingly useless speed control.A SMALL GRIPESo then my last gripe is that, I feel like it needs a cross bar between the legs, once it’s positioned it seems fine but the legs wobble when I pick the whole thing up to move it around the house and it’s takes some fussing to get it flat and stable again. A cross bar would be a nice stabilizer for those of us who want this thing to be a bit more mobile, definitely not a deal breaker but it would be nice.[Update] So it turns out the one part I skipped in the manual was how to collapse the legs to help move the unit around, it’s actually really helpful. Though I still feel like a cross bar that maybe dropped down once the legs were open would help me feel better about the stability. Still it’s a small gripe.Again we just got it so I’ll try to update this in a month or 2 if anything changes.Here’s my summaryPROS:Easy to assemble.Easy to use.She sleeps right away in it.Feels safe so far.Lots of options for fine tuning (with the exception of speed).Plug’s in! (Starlight Model)Mobile and lights hold her interest.Cute.CONS:Speed dial seems worthless.Swing has one speed.Motor may not have enough “oomph” for larger babies (unsure about this one).Cushion is one piece, not as easy to wash as it could be.Click may be annoying for some light sleepers.Could use a cross bar between the legs for added stability when moving the unit around.

Does anyone know how to take apart this swing

I’m having a hard time taking apart the metal bar that connects to the seat. I’ve tried pulling it out but nothing. All the screws to the base are bolted on. This swing was so easy to put it together all i did was click the seat into the metal bar but now its a nightmare to take it off. The swing is useful if your baby likes if but my baby hates it and I’m trying to return it before time runs out. Thank you

We have twins & being without this swing would be like cutting off your arms, neither one advised! LOVE is an understatement!

We have twins so to be without a swing would be similar to cutting off your arms and trying to care for a baby, neither one is advised! My son totally loves this, he loves the way it swings and the different sounds. We have been using this swing for a couple months now and love it! I would like to dispel some “Cons” by another reviewer. I will put their review in “quotations” and I will put mine after each statement in ***stars***.”Despite what another reviewer said, this swing does not go back and forth like traditional swing. Yes, you can adjust the way the baby faces (up to four directions), but that does not change the fact that the swing moves in a side to side motion. Considering that I bought this swing thinking it could go front to back, this is a major con for us.” ***Think about it. So it does go back & forth like a traditional swing but the seat is angled a bit different. Actually, this can face more then 4 directions because it totally rotates around in a circle.***”The highest speed is still incredibly slow. We’ve never used the lower settings because we don’t see the point. I’d like to have more reasonable speed options.” ***I do agree with this, the swing is slow but not too slow, my twins still love it.***”The mobile bar is a bit pathetic. The two stars are velcroed on. And the bar doesn’t fully collapse back, making it very difficult to get your child in and out of the swing without bopping his head. The mobile bar is removable, though, so that could be an option each time.” ***The mobile bar does collapse TOTALLY back, maybe they re-designed it? Because mine comes off or sits all the way back, which makes it completely out of the way. No bopping heads here.***”The footprint is pretty big. Luckily, though, the swing radius isn’t much bigger so you can set the swing in one spot and expect for it not to take up much more space.” *** The swings radius is not any bigger then the base, we live in a 860 square foot house and there are 8 of us combined, this fits nicely in the corner or our living area without hogging up a ton of space.***”…. it doesn’t sit flat, causing it to flap around a bit against the floor every time it swings. We’ve put felt pads underneath the uneven parts to keep it steady and quiet.” ***I too noticed this when on my hardwood floor that is not completely level. We moved and in the house we moved out of, we had carpet and we never had that problem. Felt pads took care of the problem cheap and easy for use in or new house.***”There is no locking feature, so when you put your baby in or go to get your baby out, the chair still has some movement, making it more difficult. I’m sure most swings are like this but because it rocks side to side, not front to back, it’s more pronounced and frustrating.” ***I do not notice this with my usage of the swing.****** Everyone who comes over to visit loves the swing too! Super easy to assemble (my 12 year old and her 13 year old friend put it together in less then 20 minutes! LOVE the battery OR plug in option. The only Cons for me would be that it could use a softer seat (like some memory foam or the like)and that the swing had an obnoxious squeak straight out of the box, I called customer service and they had me a replacement motor within days, great service! I have had different swings for each of my 6 children and this is by FAR and ABOVE my favorite swing yet!***

Looked good, baby hates it

The unfortunate truth about baby gear is that you won’t know how wonderful or useless something is until you try it. If you’re lucky, someone gives or loans you an item, and the trial doesn’t cost you anything.We received this swing as a gift, and I feel terrible because it’s expensive and baby hates it. I’ve tried putting her in it multiple times – from when she was 7 lbs to 12 lbs. I don’t know the exact reason why but will guess. The dangling Velcro stars do not keep her attention. They don’t make noise, have texture, or an interesting pattern. The swinging pattern is somewhat unnatural – an arc shape. The low settings are too slow with no travel. The seat is very reclined and perhaps not supportive enough for our LO.I give this swing 2 stars because it looks attractive and was easy to put together. However, it’s expensive and several reasons why baby might not like it.

Not for our little one

Our daughter, now 7 weeks old, has yet to warm up to this swing. There isn’t anything fundamentally wrong with the swing; it is what it is. Our daughter just doesn’t like it. The motor isn’t particularly powerful, the music isn’t very soothing, and I don’t think she feels secure being so close to the floor.

great swing

This is a great swing, it is very portable and light, it stores away nicely, and my daughter loves it. It has several speeds and the music lowers. If space is an issue…this is a great choice.

Not the best bouncer

Our daughter is now 6 months old and we no longer use this bouncer at all.PROS: It’s soft and plushIt’s prettyIt bounces a little when she kicksI’ve washed the insert and it came out looking just like newYou can move the toy bar back out of the wayCONS: The toy bar comes off too easily. Anytime I try to move the bouncer to a new location, off it comes.The toys on the bar don’t do anything to stimulate my child. They don’t rattle or squeak. They are just 2stuffed animals that hang there. They also tend to hang right in my baby’s face which makes her mad.You also cannot remove the toys and attach other toys to this bar.The bouncer is big and awkward and hard to move from one location to another. Ifyou have 2 floors in your house, it’s very difficult. You cannot easily carry baby ANDthis bouncer at the same time so you will need to carry one up the stairs at a time. And if you want tomove it across the floor at all, you will need to pick it up and move it due to the rubbery feet on thebottom. This was difficult for me to do if I was holding the baby and wanted to move it to the kitchen.My baby didn’t care for the vibrating, or the music. The vibrating works as it should. The music is notvery relaxing “lullaby” type music.It does have 2 positions, but they are so similar there isn’t much point in switching.It isn’t very easy for her to bounce, and her feet hit the vibrating/music box in the front once she wasover 2 months old.Overall I don’t care for this bouncer and I wouldn’t buy it again.

READ DIRECTIONS while assembling!!

This bouncer serves it’s purpose, but I don’t really think it’s better than most other bouncers on the market. I like that it’s soft and plush and has a removable infant insert, and my son seems very comfortable in it and likes the toy bar. My two complaints are that 1.) the vibration box has started to crap out after only 3 months of use, and 2.) you have to be VERY, VERY careful when you put this together so that you don’t assemble the support bars upside down! Unfortunately, they are nearly impossible to get out once they are inserted into the plastic side brackets. READ THE DIRECTIONS CAREFULLY!!! My husband did not, and so the lower support bar (the one at my son’s feet) is upside down, and my son keeps kicking a metal bracket that sticks up (it’s supposed to stick downwards for the attachment of the vibration/music box). We tried for over an hour to get the thing disassembled, but couldn’t do it. Even worse, we gave one of these to my in-laws, since they’re caring for my son while I’m at work, and they put the TOP bracket in upside down, and now the toy bar is constantly in the way! Somehow, the way the thing was assembled, the toy bar rotates forward, instead of backward and out of the way, so every time they use the bouncer, they have to take the toy bar off to get my son in and out of it!

We love this bouncer!

My daughter is 6 months old, and is now getting too big for this bouncer. We’re still using it, but having to phase it out. When she was a newborn, I loved that this bouncer snuggled her while she napped and the hanging toys entertained her (once she could reach for them) when she was awake. I also loved that it reclined so we could use it right away (a lot of bouncer seats don’t accommodate newborns) and the more upright position made her happy when she was a little older. She never really cared for the vibration or the music, but I spent many afternoons bouncing the chair with my foot trying to get her to nap. She even spent a few night in it when she couldn’t tolerate lying flat (she had reflux). I always felt that she was secure in this seat and she loves it.Pros: upright and reclining position, soft comfortable padding, easily washable, toys for her to grabCons: The music is annoying, and the button to change the recline started sticking after about 5 months of use. The toys aren’t very stimulating to an infant because there’s very little contrast (but our daughter liked them anyway).As you can tell by my 5 star rating, the cons aren’t a big deal to me – every product has a few cons, but we love it anyway!
