Graco Swing By Me Portable 2-in-1 Baby Swing Review

I just purchased this swing for my little son, and I have to say I absolutely love it! I was a little bit concerned when looking at the reviews, because apparently it stops swinging around the time the child is twelve pounds, but I decided it didn’t bother me enough not to purchase it, since my little one is, well, little. For the moment. I love that the swing is so easy to fold and store and that when you do have it up it does not take up much space. It really is a great quality for such a low price!

Since it is so small, I have started taking this swing with me every where I go. It fits easily in my car, and my little man loves being in it. It’s so great to have a break every now and then and to know that my son is happy swinging away. Yes, the engine is not the quietest you have ever heard, but this has not really bothered me yet. I don’t really use the swing for nap time, so the engine not being totally silent is not a problem.

I appreciate the safety aspects of the swing as well, and the fact that it has a five point harness. I have had swings in the past with only a three point harness, and when your kid gets to the point of throwing themselves around, it becomes a serious safety concern. My son is nice and secure in this Graco swing and I don’t worry about him falling out of it.

This swing does not have a tray, but I have never really understood the use for trays on baby swings, as if they are young enough for the swing, they are too young to use a tray. This swing also does not play music, but if you are just looking for a simple swing then that should not be a problem. For me I prefer it, as I hear enough kid music all day long.

I’m also aware that I will eventually have to buy new batteries for it, as the swing is battery powered, but that is actually something I love about this swing. It’s what makes it so simple to take with me every where I go, even the park or places or my yoga class.

I would say the pros far outweigh the cons and that is an all around great choice to make!
