Two Swinging Modes
This baby swing offers 2 swinging modes – side to side like a cradle and front to back like a swing. Parents really like this choice because it seems that often if one mode of swinging is not soothing baby, then switching to the other mode helps. Some babies prefer one way of swinging over another and it is great to have the option to choose.
Can Be Plugged In
Not every swing has an AC power adapter with it – this one does! So it saves you money on batteries. It saves you grief because you don’t need to be concerned about the batteries dying while baby is happily sleeping in it.
While this swing has an option to use batteries, it also has an automatic shut off when in battery mode. (designed to save your batteries) – but it only runs about 7 minutes before shutting off – which many parents don’t like.

Who is the Papasan Cradle Swing best for?
If you like to have a variety of choices, then this baby swing offers many options – you can use just the swing or you can customize your baby’s time in the swing by choosing to have the lights on or off, to have the mobile spinning or not, to have the music on or off. There are lots of music choices and 2 swinging options.
While 440+ owners have given this swing either 4 or 5 stars, there are some who have experienced some difficulties with the motor. Fisher Price is aware of this and they are working on it. If this is a concern to you, then you may want to look at the Fisher Price My Little Snugabunny Cradle N Swing instead.
However, many people have no difficulty with the motor and are delighted with this swing.
