What experts liked

At just 1 decibel louder than the normal noise level of the room we tested in, the Graco Glider LX is the quietest model we looked at, even at its highest speed.

The swing also features a timer mode, a cool vibe, and some lovely music to entertain and soothe your baby. Moreover, the swing comes with 6 speed levels and five-point harness.

It’s designed to really hold your baby in place, which is very important for small children that can’t support their own neck yet. The soft padded material is ideal for cradling your infant and making them feel comfortable

The glider can be operated on batteries or by using ac adapter plugin. You can use it for 4 hours on battery so it is perfect for travel. You can also set an auto-timer that will automatically turn off the glider to save battery life.

This baby swing looks quite big on the picture, but the delicate compact swing design on the footprint makes it save 40% floor space than other types.

What experts didn't like

Some people may find it annoying that the vibration unit runs independently of the rest of the swing and requires its own D battery. Battery use on the swing itself has its own minor inconvenience: When they run down, you have to take your baby out of the seat in order to change them.

Sometimes makes an annoying clicking noise

The baby swing doesn’t fold so you can’t use it for traveling

When the straps are adjusted to their full length, they are still a bit too short for a larger baby
