We have tried and tested baby swings on our little girl, we reveal the one she liked the most. We have included a price guide to help you choose the best for your little one.
These days baby swings have a lot of modes and functions, they play music, vibrate and swing in all directions. But is all this fuss worth it?
Let’s take a look at what is useful that a baby girl really likes, and what is just there to look good or make it sound good but is useless.
A baby swing is not necessarily on your list of items that is a must buy, but they are actually very useful, and in most cases a real life saver.
If anyone has had kids, they know that having somewhere safe to put baby when they are tired and need to get things done is very important. A baby swing does this for you.

Baby Girl Swing Reviews
Both baby swings come highly rated. There is a big difference in price, the 4moms is a lot more expensive than the Sweet Snugapuppy. Is it worth the extra money? Find out below.
If you are on the look out for the best baby monitor we have a guide on those too.
#1 Fisher Price Sweet Snugapuppy Dreams Cradle’n Swing
The really good thing about this swing is that it has two recline positions. Our test baby liked to be laid further back.
Baby swings usually operate at different speeds, this one can be set at 1-6, with 6 being the fastest one. Our test baby liked the fastest setting, the swing builds up in speed, which is great.
Many modern swings play tunes, this one has 16 options built into it. Our baby loved them, although she enjoyed them we got pretty annoyed with the repetition after a while.

One of the most important things is comfort, this one isn’t the softest seating area, but it’s quite comfortable and our baby managed to fall asleep in it, which speaks for itself.
This swing is actually the best selling one on the market, we know this is because of the price, which is very reasonable compared to the others out there.
One of the other reasons people buy this over other swings is because it moves side to side and back and forth. Most others just go in one direction.
What would we and our baby girl rate this swing at? We give it a 4.5 out 5 star rating, it has everything you need at a low price, so it’s a winner.

#2 4moms 2015 mamaRoo Infant Seat with Bluetooth Classic Black
This machine is expensive, but we had to text it. Our baby girl liked it, but not as much as she liked the Sweet Snugapuppy Dreams.
It’s operating pad is below the seat, so you have to get down on your hands and knees to get it started. This itself is annoying, that’s just getting it going.
This swings unique selling point is that it operates in 5 different swing positions, others just go back and forth or side to side.
The built in sounds and music are okay, a bit boring but baby found them amusing for a while. It has a built in bluetooth option to play your own tunes through it, which was great. If baby has a fave song you can play it to them while they swing.
The seat can be reclined, although we found our test baby didn’t like the seating positions as much as the previous tested unit.
Because the seating are is large and the padding is thin, it’s better for older babies, this one is not for a newborn to use.
The reason this is only in spot two is because it is expensive and is not good all round, if you have a small baby it’s not for you.
You can read the support manual here for more details.
Tip: Use a long range baby monitor with cameras to keep an eye on your baby in the swing at all times.
