Worst value for money!
I bought this product back in 2015, used it for 4-5 months for my first child and then packed it for next child. Opened it after 4 years and to my surprise the motor stopped working, neither with cable nor with batteries. After following up with the customer care for more than a month they advised that the motor is not repairable and needs to be replaced all together at an extra cost of $165+postage.
There's no doubt that this product offers great features but I would not recommend it to anyone if you are looking for a good quality and durable product. Refrain from burning your hard earned money!
Not one of the lucky ones.
My 6 week old baby only tolerates being in this thing when he is fast asleep when we put him in there. As soon as he wakes up in there he cries as he is scared. We can also never put him in there when he is awake because again he will cry because he is scared. I hope this improves as he gets older but I’m overall disappointed as this hasn’t worked for me like it has for other people. Your baby will either love it or hate it.
LIFESAVER Highly recommend
WOW so thankful for all the other positive reviews for this Joie Serina 2 in 1 baby swing which swayed my decision to buy and try despite the heftier price tag. Let me just say this is WELL WORTH the price and has been a lifesaver being a first time mother to give my arms relief from carrying and holding my baby girl all day. I used from 1 months of age but really wish I had started using this when my baby was a newborn (it has handy newborn insert) but I only found this after my baby turned 1 month old as my arms and back became so sore from h...olding her all day. This swing soothes baby and is the closest thing to feeling as though they are swinging and being held in the arms. Highly recommend you buy this if you want rest and also want time to do housework efficiently without having to hold baby too. It can be used as swing (to play or sleep in), has 5 point safety harness to secure baby in for maximum safety and can also be taken off to use as a vibrating rocker separately along with practical functionality of being able to be used to feed baby in as well! The swing function can be swiveled 90 or 180 degrees to conveniently change baby's perspective and swing angle and there are 6 swing levels from slow to super fast depending on what baby finds most soothing and comforting. It also has wheels at the base so you can easily move to any room to use. What an ingenious invention! My baby is 5 months old now and I can see her still using this for months go come LOVE LOVE LOVE
Bought it since my bub was 2 months. Now my bub is 8 months and he's still using it. I can say It's a must have item! When he was crying. I put him in the swing and he stopped crying and fell asleep so easily
Just one thing I dont like is it has the noise that a bit annoying sometimes but its all good. Its worth it
Gets baby to sleep
Bought this after suffering through 4 weeks where baby wanted to be held constantly and refused to be put down. I knew it wouldn't solve his need for comfort from feeling body warmth and smell but I was so desperate I forked out the $330 to buy one.
As expected he wouldn't have a bar of it when he was still going through his leap and while he had a cold, but once he felt better he did fall asleep fairly quickly and unassisted in the swing. After a feed Just strap him in, turn it on and within 10 mins he was out. He was also content to watch...the world go by in it if he wasn't sleepy, saved me from having to hold him. It's good that it swings both ways, is easy to move from room to room and has various music sounds. Seat is comfy and the small mobile toys entertain him. Vibration function needs batteries to operate which is a bad design as it should just work from then mains power.
Best swing on the market
This is my second baby swing. The first one ran on batteries and I noticed after 6 months the motor slowed right down. No problems with the Joie though. The motor never lost power after 9 months of use.
Definitely the best multi use swing out there - the seat lifts off easily with one click, not like others where you have to pull and jerk the seat to get it off. Its operation is smooth, easy to move around the house thanks to the wheels, and it's great to remove the seat to carry a sleeping baby to
another room. Plus it runs on both batteri...
Great for sleeping baby
I bought this swing for my baby when she was 3 months old. Unfortunately, she didn't like being put in it while she was awake. Once my baby is asleep, I put her in it and rock her on low (setting of 2). I have only used the swing to rock up and down, rather than side to side. My baby is now 7 months old and the swing continues to keep her sleeping. I only ever put her in it while she is supervised as she often keeps her head low in a deep sleep. When she awakes she often plays with the hanging trees. When you turn on the swing, it has an automatic noise which I find annoying, so I immediately turn it off. I do like the swing, I just wish that my baby would tolerate it while she was awake.
Questions & Answers
Can u use wd40 on it if needed? We bought one today and its got a squeeking noise when it swings x
Hi there. Are the infant inserts supposed to stay in permanently or remove as baby gets older? Mine seem to slip down really easily, meaning baby slips down with them. Also does anyone have washing instructions for the infant inserts? I found the manual really hopeless for instructions overall. Many thanks!
