About that Boppy swing.
September 21, 2009

We waited until Charlotte was eight weeks old before we put her in the swing.  We tried a few times before then, but she always hated it with a passion, and then last week she MIRACULOUSLY started to love it.  Now I put her in it when I shower in the morning and she hangs out in it while we make dinner and wash dishes in the evening.  Dear people at Boppy?  My dishes are clean for the first time in, oh, TWO MONTHS.  Best.  Invention.  Ever.

    We have baby-minders scattered throughout the house so we can get stuff done.  The swing lives in the bathroom so I can shower.  The infant rocker is in the kitchen, the bouncy chair is in my sewing room, the activity gym is in the family room, her blanket and toy basket are in the living room… no matter where we go, we have a place to stick her if we need to be hands-free. :)

    That’s all that my son slept in when we moved to Hawaii - his swing.  He looooooooooved that swing.

    Tyler HATED our swing/bouncy seat. We used it for maybe a total of 4 hours before giving up and packing it away.

    Maybe our next one will like it.

    Joe - I was just about to give up on it too.  I actually put her in when she was sleeping because someone knocked on the door and I figured I ought to throw on a shirt before answering lol and when she woke up, it was like she’d undergone a huge transformation and was okay with the swing all of the sudden.  Two hours earlier, she’d hated it.  Now, loves it.

    Kids are strange, strange creatures.

    We had the same one, and I called it “How Mommy Takes a Shower”.

    I have a boppy swing but it doesn’t have the crotch thing.  Lily wouldn’t put up with it unless she was already asleep.  Then it was great.
