Fisher Price Soothing Motions Glider

Okay, so this one is interesting. 3 stars. 

5 stars on the functionality. 
2 stars on price. 

Average - 3 stars. 

We bought this glider for two reasons. One - he has acid reflux and needs to sit up after he eats, but not sit up too far. It sits at a perfect angle (has two positions) for him to be comfortable. Two - he doesn't sleep in a crib, and started resisting the swing, and the bouncy seat died. This works well because the seat itself swivels 360 degrees, so it can either glide side-to-side or back and forth. The seat has two comfy cushions (washable), a buckle for safety (we don't use it yet), and it was easy to assemble. It takes 4 "D" batteries, and we have yet to replace them. It also has two speeds, and plays two kinds of music. 


One - the price. It was 80 dollars at Wal-Mart. For what it does, I don't think it should be so expensive. 

Two - the speeds. It goes slow, and super slow. However, it seems to be fine for Conner. I just thought that it would move a little faster, more like a swing. But alas, it does not. 

All in all, I think it was a pretty good investment.
