I have a question. I have a young baby boy who is nearing the 18 lb mark. I have a baby swing that me and my g/f usually use to put him to sleep either for a nap or for the night. I am missing the instructions for the swing set and need to know if there is any weight restrictions. If my baby weighs too much for the swing to operate safely, I'll tear it down. I tried searching google but couldnt find anything concrete. The make of the swing is Graco.

Another one says 30 lbs.

Here are a bunch of different types maybe you can find the one you have on there.

Thanks for the help. I noticed one day that my boy decided to lean forward which encouraged the "swinging motion". Its a 6 speed swing and I usually put it on the 3rd or 4th speed. When I looked over, it looked like he was on the 6th speed. The thing was going at full tilt so to speak.

generally the weight limt on a swing is 25 lbs although you will know before that if the baby needs to come out or not.

lol.....well I asked my son's doctor today and she suggested that since he is trying to sit up more that its time to tear it down.
