This was one of the first things we were bought as a present for our baby, when we got it out of the box we thought WOW it was quite simple to put together and looked very impressive!
When we set it up we then realised just how large the unit was and it sat there for about a month before Tillie made an appearance, everyone who saw it commented on how lovely and impressive it was.

When Tillie was 4 days old I put her in it for the first time, she was very unsettled as soon I as put her in the seat and pressed the button which mimic the sounds heard from inside the womb and she stopped instantly and was very happy, we used the swing on the slowest speed quite often in the first month, plus it comes with a teddy bear head rest which looks adorable!
As she got older we just used the natural sounds to get her to sleep without her actually being in the swing.
The motor was quite noisy and often quite jerky she became more and more unsettled in it and from 10 weeks old onwards she didn't like it at all, it made her cry. With it being so large it wasn't something you could easily move from room to room and as we were limited for space it wasn't very practical.

Advantages - looks very impressive and good quality speakers, the womb sounds were a great for settling Tillie when she was newborn
Disadavantages - you need a lot of space, I found the motor to be quite noisy and quite jerky which worried me slightly, it didn't really last us very long for the price paid.

Overall impression - If I had another baby I don't think I would even get it out again as it really is rather large and didn't use it that often, instead I would go for the basic rocker.

Score out of 5
I would rate this product as 2

"Your baby has Laryngomalacia"!!!????

I will explain a little about my labour, maybe a detailed explanation might go up in the future but lets put it like this, it was not nice and after suffering from an Irritable Uterus throughout my pregnancy followed by a 42 hour labour and a scary ending but I got the beautiful Tillie Bean so was worth every second! Basically the cord was wrapped around her neck twice and right round her body. She had the hiccups so much during pregnancy and I am wondering if this does have a connection to the problem which was about to be revealed!

I remember a few nights after Tillie was born hearing a strange noises when she was breathing, I had to stay in hospital for a few nights as I needed a blood transfusion, I buzzed the nurse to check about her breathing but was told 'it is just mucous on her lungs it is very common it won't last long'.
Even as a new mum I thought that this wasn't the case, but who was I to argue.
This 'mucous' was getting louder and louder and by …

When I was at school, we didn't have fidget spinners..... we made these

I was sat with Tillie earlier chatting about school. I told her there wasn't such a thing as fidget spinners when I was at school..... instead we made these...... BUT WHAT ARE THEY CALLED? Do they even have a name?

I could easily remember how to make it!
Did you put colours and numbers on yours? I think I did the colours and the numbers the wrong way round. It was close to bedtime so I made one in a rush and told her we would make some more tomorrow.... Any suggestions for challenges would be gratefully received!

Also if anyone knows what they are called please let me know!
