When you have a baby who loves to be on the move, it can be even more difficult to get things done because your hands are never free. So what do you do? We mean, we can only neglect laundry, dishes, and vacuuming for so long. *Enters the baby swing*
Ah, yes, the glorious invention that is the baby swing. Sure, you could strap on a Baby Bjorn and try to do all the things with your little one strapped to your chest, but your back needs a break, mom. So let these baby swings on the market do what they are designed to do.
“So my baby likes to be held and rocked to sleep,” one mom said after reaching out to Mamas Uncut. “Anybody know a good swing that comes close to that? That helped with your baby taking a good nap. Any recommendations on a good swing or rocker?”
And let us tell you, there are a lot of moms who swear by their baby swing purchases! Here are some of the ones they loved:

“My daughter was the same way when she was little little. We had a Graco swing that could be plugged in or run off batteries. It laid flat. I’d swaddle her and put her in the swing. Started swinging it, turned on the vibration, and the music and she was out like a light bulb for hours.”

“This is the best one I had!”

“The Graco dream glider. Both my kids loved it. It rocks, you can adjust the back to where it lays flat like a bassinet for when they fall asleep. It has 6 different speeds, vibrations, and sounds.”
$249.99 at the time of publication
“My guy loved his mamaRoo! Bonus, you can hook your music up (or baby music) via Bluetooth. It has a bunch of different modes that you can change the motion to as well. It is a little pricey though.”
“The mamaRoo was great for my daughter. Haven’t tried it on the new baby yet, hopefully he likes it too since it is a little pricey.”
“The mamaRoo moves like mom does. It can move in different types of ways. It’s expensive if you buy new. But I found a gently used one on Facebook market place for a quarter of the price. It was worth the money spent too.”

“My boys both loved the Fisher-price rainforest swing. They did not like anything else. The bonus is that it plugs into the wall or you can also use batteries! Word of warning though, do not make the swing your go-to for sleeping all the time or you will be sorry.”
$199.99 at the time of publication
“Graco Sense2Soothe! My daughter wouldn’t fall asleep unless she was in my arms and she still doesn’t but this swing puts her to sleep like a dream!”
So there you have it! All of the swings that have baby-tested and mama-approved. So if you’re in the market for a baby swing, these are the ones you want! Enjoy!
