Baby Swings! *Update*

I am at a loss on which swing to get!  Some insight from you ladies might help!  I am determining to get one of these two swings:

1. Graco Glider LX Gliding Swing

2. Graco DreamGlider 2 in 1 Gliding Swing & Sleeper

I am going to use it as a sleeper for at night next to our bed to make it easier to breast feed.  I really don't have to be waking up and walking across the whole house every two hours.  Option number 2 seems to be more for this, and is a swing.  Number 1 looks like it could also be a sleeper, but just doesn't advertise for it.  I have been seeing more positive reviews for number 1 versus number 2. 

Which do you think?  I have to order number 2 online and soon if I choose that one.  The other one I can just get in the store. HELP! (cross posted in the "pregnancy" group)


My toddler basically lived in his Graco Swing!  I didn't use it at night, mainly because we were in an apartment then, and his crib was in our room.  But he always slept in it for naps, he wouldn't sleep in the crib during the day (not sure why, LOL).  Here are some pics.

do you have pics to post as well? I had a graco swing that we used. That was 13yrs ago, nothing as fancy as what is out now. My son loved our simple swing and slept no problem in it

Baby doesn't need to sleep in a swing, it's dangerous. Get a Moses basket or a bassinet, they'll cost the same or less than a swing.

Do you have pictures?

I didn't buy a swing with my 2nd.  No reason why just never did.  Guess mainly because the bouncer had a vibrator.  With my 1st I was gifted 1 so I used it.

I don't know anything about either, they both look nice. My son was the only one to like his swing and he didn't use his much

I've never tried them. I'd look and see which offers the most benefits for your LO

I would caution you about using either of those for sleeping for more than two hours at a time. Like car seats, the baby's position in these swings can compromise his oxygen levels if left in them for more than two hours at a time. A much better choice would be the Arm's Reach Co-sleeper. You can also Google directions to safely side-car the crib to your bed.

I actually have the rock n' play as well.  But it isn't the one that rocks by itself.
