#1 Graco Simple Sway Baby Swing
This baby swing/rocker takes up a lot more floor space than others on the market. So make sure you have the room for it if you go with this option.
The whole system is very lightweight and is easy to move around.
All in all it’s a very basic swing, which is perfect if you are looking for one that is very easy to use.
Some swings motion back and forth or side to side or both, this one motions just side to side only.
To keep the babies attention when awake the swing has a neat toy bar with three soft motion toys attached.
The unit has six built in speeds, great for finding out which one your baby likes the most. Some babies soothe with it on slow, and some like it on the fastest setting.
It has a vibration option too which really does help with babies that suffer from colic.
The swing has 15 sounds and music built in, many of which are really relaxing to help babies get over to sleep easily.
