Vibrating Baby Swing
Modern baby swings have much more to offer. They swing in all directions, play music and now some models vibrate.
Why buy a baby swing that vibrates? Well, the swing motion alone can soothe a baby to sleep, the vibrations give you extra special powers that will get any baby over to sleep.
The gentle vibrations work wonders on babies that suffer from colic. If your baby cries a lot you really need to have this in your parenting arsenal.

The vibrating makes the baby feel like they are back in the womb, it calms them down fast and helps them sleep.
Some swings even include white noise sounds, which makes them relax completely even when over tired and stressed.
Many swings use a plug for power, others are batteries only while some are both. This is important to note down as it could be expensive to run with batteries only.

- Graco Simple Sway Baby Swing
- Soothing Vibration Baby Swing – Fisher price 4-In-1

#1 Graco Simple Sway Baby Swing
This one is our top-rated because it’s not filled with many functions and modes, it’s got what you need and is easy to use.
The swing has two different vibration settings, you should be aware that it is powered by batteries and a plug. This is great if you want a travel baby swing.
The unit plays 15 different songs, the swing motions at 6 different speeds. It has good head support making it great for newborn babies.
This swing is less than $100, it is very reasonable and is a lot less hassle to operate than others on the market right now.
The control panel is at the top of the swing so you do not need to bend over to get it started.
The unit only swings from side to side, most babies prefer this option, our test baby absolutely loved it.
Just to make it clear, the big plus point for this swing is that it is a lot cheaper than the others.
The swing speed is pretty slow at the start, but it builds up to nice speed, which the baby we tested on loved the gradual increase.
As with all electric swings for babies, they will make a noise when in motion, this one is the same, the noises are not excessive and are not as loud as some as the others we have tried.
The only bad point we could give this is that the mobile toy unit does not move at all when the swing is in motion.

#2 Soothing Vibration Baby Swing – Fisher price 4-In-1
We just had to test this swing, it offers a lot, but does it deliver?
The unit has 4 rock and slide motions, each setting is different and will work for different baby personalities.
The seat can be removed with ease, this changes it from a swing into a rocker.
So, you are getting a swing, a glider and rocker all in one.
What’s good? It has two recline positions, many don’t recline at all. This ensures a higher probability that your baby will be comfortable in the chair.
Above the seat there is a toy bar, it features two lovely soft toys that our test baby fell in love with. We could not get them back from the baby.
The unit has 12 songs in there and 2 nature sounds. The vibrations can be set on different speeds too.
You should be aware that every baby will be different, some babies do not like the swing motions at all, our baby absolutely loved it in this swing.
Because this one has a glider and rocker included, if your baby hates the swing you have two other options and will not have wasted your money.
The seat has a lot of room, so is perfect for larger heavier babies. The fabric is very soft, our test baby found it very comfortable indeed.
Many reviews state that it is very loud when running, we did not find this at all, in fact it was not as loud as our TV. It’s just a small humming type background noise.
This is only our number two choice because of the price, it’s a good buy if you have the budget for it.
Both of these swings are popular and have received good reviews, I’m sure you will be happy whichever one you choose to go with. Our test baby preferred the Graco Simple Sway Baby Swing, it’s a good price too.
The start toys over the swing chair are supposed to move when the swing is in motion, however they did not move for us, this did not bother our baby.
The unit can be used with batteries and or plug in, this is great as the ones that run on batteries only can get quite costly to keep going for a long time.
This is good for indoor and outdoor use, perfect for travel and is very easy to put up and take down quickly. You should know that it does not fold.
The seating position does not adjust, which is a bit of a problem if your baby is not comfortable in the one set position.
