    Hmm. Did the motor last? It’s obviously not built to provide that much torque/force, although I can’t say for sure it would be damaged by it.

      They don’t say how much the seat was being rocked.

      Maybe just a couple of inches. Enough for babby to sleep.

        Yeah, but the baby alone would weigh far more than the tray and disk ever would. And then they’re doing it over and over again for an extended period.

          Just a little push from pops at the beginning.

          And they didn’t say it was a long term solution. For all we know, the drive was going to be replaced the following week.

            Oh, so you’re thinking he’d start it first, and then start the program to be perfectly synced with the period of the rocking? I suppose that could work, although it would be tricky to get the timing just right by hand, or it would be for me.

            Yeah, and it might have electronics that will handle the extra load just by virtue of properties of the standard parts. Like I said, I don’t know that it’s bad idea, but I do wonder.

              I think you’re taking this whole thing too seriously.

              People can do whatever they want for the lulz.
