I have a love/hate relationship with this swing.. It appealed to me mainly because it can be plugged in. I love that the mobile can be moved to reach baby, and my son enjoyed the leaves and animals.
I bought it when my son was 2 months old, and I'd say 2 1/2 months after it was purchased it started to sound like the motor was being worked too hard. (Keep in mind my son was 4 1/2 months and weighed about 14lbs)
If the mobile was turned on, the swing would rock slower.. Or sometimes just in general it would barely swing at all and I'm not sure why, but it was very frustrating. The music is okay when it's turned on and then will suddenly start getting louder at certain parts and sounding almost like bass being too loud in the car.
I turned it on today and it isn't working at all. Mobile, music, swing, nothing works. My son is almost 7 months and is 18.5lbs .. There is NO way this would work until 25lbs. I had hopes of using this for our new baby come April, but it seems I'll have to buy something else.
