Graco Baby Swings Reviewed
We have taken the time to try and test the top two Graco baby swings; Dream Glider Gliding Swing and Simple Sway Baby Swing. Both of these swings rate very highly having 5 out of 5 star ratings, are they really this good? Let’s find out…..
We also have a guide on the best baby car seat so follow the link for more details.
#1 Dream Glider Gliding Swing
This is our top rated choice because you get a lot for your money. With that I mean you get a baby swing and sleeper cot in one. If you are looking for a sleeper, hold right there, you can get a swing and cot in one here.
It was very easy for us to set up, it’s also super simple to switch from glider cot into a swing mode.
The seat can be switched into two different positions, this feature is very important. Many swings just have one set seated position, which is not great at all.
Compared to other baby swings that we have tested this one is most definitely one of the most comfortable out there, that’s inclusive for all swing brands, not just Graco.
The cot can swing at 6 different speeds, the speed gradually builds up, our test baby absolutely loved this and fell asleep really fast.
For further relaxation the unit also has two vibration modes, this is particularly useful for soothing babies that suffer from colic.
Safety: the swing has a 3 point harness, your baby will not be able to fall out. It’s sturdy and will not move around the place when in motion.
It has 15 songs built in, the lever you can see in the picture is pulled to switch from swing to sleeper easily.
The swing is powered by plug in or batteries, you have the choice. There is a built in timer so you can set it to go for a set time and stop itself to save power.

Tip: use a long range baby monitor with cameras to keep an eye on your baby in the swing at all times.

#2 Simple Sway Baby Swing
This is not just the most popular Graco baby swing, it’s the most popular baby swing of all time.
It’s rated so highly and become so popular due to it’s price and simple use and features. It has everything you need and does what it’s supposed to do.
We have tried and tested this swing many times now, it always comes out on top, whichever of our test babies use it they always love it.
The biggest buying point is the size, it does not take up as much room as other baby swings out there.
The operating panel is located at the top of the machine, you do not need to bend over to get it started.
The only one drawback is the operating sound, it’s not really loud but it’s not the quietest baby swing in operation.
The unit can be powered by batteries or plug in, this ensures it’s good for home use and for travel.
It has 6 different swing speeds with 15 songs and sounds included. The songs are repetitive but the babies love them, we didn’t.
All the fabrics are removable and can be washed in the machine. It offers vibration modes too, good for colic babies.
