    I use Graco Lovin’ Hug Infant Swing. I usually put my daughter in the swing when she starts to get a little fussy. And I also get heaps of house work done after I lay my little one in her seat!! She absolutely loves the swing and has no problem falling asleep on it. I absolutely love the design and its features and have no complaints so far.

    We have the Graco Love and Hug in Capri just liked pictured above and we used it multiple times every day for my now 16 month old daughter. That is what she napped in for her first few months and it was a life saver! We also have the Comfort & Harmony Bouncer which she really loved being in when she was awake but I couldn’t hold her. She often sat in it while I was cooking to keep her occupied. Can’t wait to re-use both of these things with our new daughter who will be here in May!

    I can tidy up the room, fold clothes and even do dishes as long as my little one can see me.

    My daughter used The Graco luvin’ hug swing and the bright starts bouncer. I am a single mom and they are both lifesavers. I am able to get my school work, cleaning and cooking done while she was playing in them!

    My daughters had the cradle swing and the infant to toddler walker from fisher-price and let me just say they were both lifesavers. They could sit in the swing or chair for hours just relaxed,happy and not fussy which in return allowed me to get tons of work done; housework,school work and just a little me time as well. Love these products!

    My son just loved his Precious Planets Fisher-Price Open Top Take-Along Swing!!! I was able to get lots of housework and stuff done while he was swinging away!!By it having a control where you could put it on the music or non music as well as a variable speed option it was perfect on those days when my son could not be soothed by any other means except the music and swinging vibration of the swing. For the longest time he would only take his naps and sleep in the swing. Plus with him having silent reflux it kept him at a great angle for the support he needed as well as security to get the rest he really needed. I love that it is also light weight and portable and folds up to take in the car or move it around so that I could watch him while I washed dishes or folded clothes. The only thing I didn’t like was that it only went up to 25 lbs. I just wish they would have made the weight limit higher because we had to scramble to come up with something that was so comforting to him after he reached the weight limit and really did still need his swing. I also wish it would have more toys on it to keep his interest longer or would have had something to light up on it he would have loved it all the more. I would highly suggest it to other Moms and their families. It was a great purchase!!!

    my daughter used the Fisher Price cradle swing and the Fisher Price Papasan-Style Bouncer Seat. She loved them both. I was able to get laundry done, cooking, and some nap time. She loved falling asleep int he bouncer seat.

    I use Graco Lovin’ Hug Infant Swing. I usually put my daughter in the swing when she starts to get a little fussy. And I also get heaps of house work done when she is settled in her seat!! She absolutely loves the swing and has no problem falling asleep on it. The design and soft texture is a plus. For Playtime seat we use Fisher Price my little snug-a-bunny. I like the fact that bouncer is not too high off the floor. The vibrating option is great. It is also really easy to clean.

    Our LO loves the Fisher price swing. She settles down instantly and we can take care of house chores then kick up up feet and relax!

    While the baby is in the seat I am able to do laundry, dishes, take a shower ALONE, and read a book and give extra cuddles to my big guy.

    Disney Baby The Lion King Premiere Cozy Coo Sway Seat isn’t on your list but honestly its the best, I had the graco lovin’ hug infant swing but it just didnt cut it, so we got the disney baby cozy coo sway seat with vibration and side sway and it works like a charm 8/10 times shes out in a minute!

    Love love love my mamaRoo! Got it for my first baby, and am now using it again for my second! Among other things, it has allowed me to take the elusive mommy shower on countless occasions, lol! Without my mamaRoo, I would still be in my jammies right now!

    The only time I get things done is when my baby is in her seat. I can do the dishes, make dinner, or eat. I don’t know what I would do without one.

    We have one bouncy upstairs for when I’m cooking on the stove or showering, and a BabyBjorn for when I’m working as a hairstylist downstairs when baby just wants to sit up and see the world, or fall asleep!

    I love the Mamaroo by 4Moms. It’s stylish and innovative, but it’s had my infant son’s heart since week 2. He’s now almost 11 weeks and loves his Mamaroo time.
