The Cradle N Swing is a LIFESAVER!! April 28, 2011
By Linda Key (Athens, GA)
The Fisher Price My Little Lamb Swing was given to us by a relative who had used it for their daughter. Even though their daughter had grown out of it by 6 months, they did have great luck with it and told me I had to give it a try. Boy am I glad I did!!
My daughter only slept 7 to 8 hours a day for the entire first month of her life because of reflux. We were on the verge of going insane. Then we got the My Little Lamb Swing, and ALL THAT CHANGED! The gentle rocking helped her to go to sleep and stay asleep. When I watch her, I realize that the swing makes it impossible for her to stay focused on any object, so her eyelids just get tired and slowly shut!! When she wakes up from reflux pains (or any other small discomfort), the My Little Lamb Swing is also able to rock her back to sleep! Now she has gotten a lot more sleep, her reflux has gotten so much better as well!! We used this item for all her day time naps and most of her night time naps from the time she was 1 month to 2 months. She is 2.5 months now and we are weaning her off of it a bit so she doesn’t develop a crutch, and she seems to be ready for the transition, which pleasantly surprised me. Now we use it for about half of her daily sleep.
With that being said, let me explain the ins and outs of this swing based on my personal experience:
The My Little Lamb Swing can withstand heavy usage – we work it day and night, and so far it still looks like new and works the same as when we got it. It is easy to use and assemble – we got it used without instructions and we put it together no problems. Also, the manual is available on line if you really need it. It takes 4 size D batteries, and has no AC adapter option. With brand new Duracell Coppertop D batteries, the swing lasted a month and a half of heavy use.
AS FAR AS PEOPLE’S COMPLAINS ABOUT THE NOISES, HERE’S WHAT I’VE FOUND THAT HELPS:
There are two types of noises coming out of this swing, one is the motor noise, which can’t be eliminated, the other is the squeaky or tapping noise coming out of the legs, which can be avoided. The motor noise can be minimized by turning on the swing before you start pushing it as someone else had previously mentioned. Still, this noise is quite annoying to me – I can’t sleep with it. But it seems to put the baby right to sleep! Now the leg noise. I find that the legs need to be spread apart ALMOST as far as they would go. This ensures stability and stops the legs from coming off the floor. If your swing’s legs are coming off the floor when the swing is in motion, SPREAD THE LEGS FURTHER APART! The other thing that causes this noise is uneven floors or having one leg on carpet and one on hardwood. You most likely won’t have this noise at all if you use this swing on carpet.
Another great thing about the My Little Lamb Swing is that it’s very easy to operate. The swing has a dial which controls on, off and 6 different speeds, a switch to turn on the mobile, and another slider for the music and sounds. In my opinion, the “6 speeds” is somewhat a false advertisement. All 6 speeds are quite similar, and the fastest speed seems to be quite wearing on the batteries. I also don’t see anyone ever needing a higher speed than the slowest – it’s plenty fast enough. The songs and sounds don’t do anything for my baby. The mobile captivates her – she likes staring at them from time to time. This swing has two positions, one in a reclined seating position, which is GREAT for reflux babies, the other is a flat position designed for sleeping. The My Little Lamb Swing is advertised as swinging in 3 ways, when assembled the seat swings left and right, but you can also turn the seat basket to the left or to the right, which swings the baby similar to if you were rocking her in your arms. Turning left or right gives you the same type of swinging really, just a different scenery for the baby. Do be careful with this type of swinging – when the baby is in the flat position, the swing swooshes the baby up so much that her head is a bit lower than her feet, which can cause spit-up.
The My Little Lamb Swing is very stable. When correctly assembled, I don’t see the swing having any possibility of falling over. I also appreciate the two-leg design. It allows you to step very close to the swing without the possibility of tripping over one of the legs – great for klutzes like myself. I also love how the swing looks. The material is very soft and I’m sure comfortable – or my baby wouldn’t fall asleep so quick in it. When you place your baby in the swing, it looks like she has big lamb ears – absolutely adorable! I also like the size of the My Little Lamb Swing. It can be fit through standard door frames without taking anything apart. It’s light enough that even I can move it, albeit a bit clumsily. The swing can be fit in an economy vehicle by taking off the legs, which does not require any tools.
Does a great job of what it’s supposed to do, which to me is rock your baby to sleep
Looks totally adorable
Stable, high quality
Easy to move or transport
No power adapter option – 4 D batteries only
When I put my baby in the swing, the animals from the mobile like to brush over her face which tends to wake her up
If you want to buckle your baby, you can’t swaddle her
