I was given this swing as a baby shower gift and my son loved it! For months it was the only place he would sleep, other than my lap. The fabric on the seat was warm and snuggly and gave him the impression that momma was still holding him. It is very comfy for the little ones and the incline is great for reflux. The seat cover was also fairly easy to take off and throw in the washing machine.

One problem we had with it is that it is very noisy when turned on. The swinging sound even overpowered the somewhat annoying music. Also, it swings very very fast when your little one doesn't weigh very much. My husband tucked a towel under the strap in the back and let it drag on the floor as it swung. That provided enough resistance to make it a gentler ride for the first couple of months.
This is a somewhat bulky swing. It's not terribly easy to move from room to room and is certainly not easy to take along on vacation. It does "collapse" somewhat, but the swinging mechanism itself is so large that it is impossible to make it compact enough to be convenient. Having said that, though, it is very sturdy and anything that's holding my newborn better be sturdy.
