Love spending time with baby, but sometimes you just have to get things done like the dishes, cooking, cleaning and other household chores. And sometimes, you’re just too tired and your arms need a break. Baby swings and cradle swings are life-savers.
1. Fisher-Price Snugabunny Cradle ‘N Swing with Smart Swing Technology
The Fisher-Price Snugglabunny Cradle ‘N Swing has a great option of side-to-side and head-to-toe movement, positions and speeds. The mix of songs and soothing nature sounds are calming. The deep seat is cozy. And the birds and bunny are cute. It’s powered by four D batteries, but also an AC adapter so no worries with dying batteries. A little squeaking during swinging, but nothing too bad.
2. Fisher-Price Deluxe Take Along Swing and Seat
The Fisher-Price Deluxe Take Along Swing and Seat is great because it’s an infant seat and swing all in one. This swing is extremely convenient for travel and storage because it folds up really small. The seat has calming vibrations and various swing speeds to use. The mix of songs and sounds is very soothing. Runs on four C Alkaline batteries which need to be replaced fairly often. The stuffed friends are adorable. Seems like it’s meant for smaller babies or newborns.
3. Fisher-Price Papasan Cradle Swing
The Fisher-Price Papasan Cradle Starlight Swing has a cute, snuggling seat and canopy with a seat that reclines in two positions. It has good volume for songs and sounds. Wonderful fit for newborns. The motor can get loud when it starts, but also can be turned off and manually swung. Operates on four D alkaline batteries.
4. Graco Glider LX Gliding Swing
The Graco Glider XL Affina Gliding Swing is space-saving, but seems to fit smaller babies better. The songs and sounds are Ok, but the sound quality is not that great. It’s powered by five D Alkaline batteries or AC power adapter, which is the better choice to use. The motor tends to be a bit weak.
5. Fisher-Price Cradle ‘n Swing with AC Adapter
The Fisher-Price My Little Lamb Cradle ‘N Swing has two different swinging motions and six swing speeds that aren’t very distinct on some. It’s great because it’s lightweight and has a nice soft seat. The two reclining positions and three adjustable seat positions are fantastic and give different ways to comfort the baby. Songs and nature sounds, a motorized lamb mobile, tray and bead bar, and soft lamb rattle are cute and entertaining. It operates on four D Alkaline batteries,or AC power adapter, which works out better. Sometimes the motor makes loud noises when warming up.
Baby swings and cradle swings are such a wonderful convenience. Can’t live without using them. The constant movement puts baby to sleep and gives time to accomplish so many other things while also being able to keep an eye on him and without having to place him in the crib. Would buy another in a heartbeat.
