Potential Issues

  • The swing does not shut off automatically, but the music stops playing after 1 hour.
  • The mobile with hanging stars above is not motorized and does not turn automatically.
  • The padding on the head support pillow is not very high, so it will not stabilize a newborn’s head around the sides very well.
  • It is not designed to fold up easily for storage or transportation.


The Graco Simple Sway Baby Swing is a great side-to-side baby swing that has a good amount of extra features such as music, sounds, and vibrations. It is available at a lower price than some of the larger swings with more features. It is great swing for smaller spaces.
