Sometimes baby swings can be a bit too harsh or too fast for babies who get easily uncomfortable with the movement, and needs something a little bit simpler (like a gliding motion for example). Or sometimes newborns can get uncomfortable in their seats and need to move around, so they start bouncing. In a traditional swing, this could cause a problem because they may only move in swinging directions or not be built to withstand a bouncing baby. However, the Graco DuoGlider baby swing is absolutely one that is made for this kind of baby. If your baby is fussy, wiggly, bouncy or needs more than just a back and forth swing, then this could be the perfect product for you.
The Graco DuoGlider baby swing uses the same soothing motions that you would when cuddling your baby by gliding back and forth smoothly. This helps your baby relax easily and even fall asleep in her glider without much fuss. And even if she does get fussy and want to bounce around, the Graco DuoGlider baby swing easily doubles as a bouncer allowing her to move, play and be active without you having to put her into a different product or take her down from her swing. If you want a swing that will save you from purchasing several different baby items, then this glider could really help you and your budget.
This baby swing is designed to take up much less space than a traditional standing swing (the company states it reduces area taken up in your home by 40%), and doubles as a bouncer allowing you to have two products in one.
Sometimes baby swings can be a bit too harsh or too fast for babies who get easily uncomfortable with the movement, and needs something a little bit simpler. It also comes with a convenient handle on the top that makes it easy for you to take your baby and the product with you wherever you are in the house. If you want to move around from room to room, then you can simply grab the handle at the top of the product, and lift the entire thing to have it move with you. The structure is built strong enough to be lifted with the baby still in the seat, and you can keep your little one as close to you as you would like.
Conversely, the seat is so comfortable and stable that if you wish to simply leave your little one in it and go about the house, you can do so without worry. The cushion is plush and comes with a headrest for your infant as well as comfortable straps so you don’t have to fear for her possibly falling out of the swing. The Graco DuoGlider baby swing also comes with the option to use either a plug into an outlet to keep it running or to unplug it and switch to battery mode.
One of the families we talked to who uses the Graco DuoGlider baby swing thought that the option to carry it around was great. Mom had this to say:
“I can plug my baby swing into the wall when I am in the living room and put my newborn inside. Whether he is awake or asleep, he seems to have no problem being comfortable in there, especially with the two little bears at the top of the swing. When he is awake, he can hit at them or just look at them, and he really likes them. When he is asleep, I can set the swing to any speed to make him comfortable and let it glide. Then, whenever I move to another room, if I unplug it, it will just switch to battery mode, keep working and I can grab it by the handle at the top and take it with me to wherever I want to go. I like to keep my son close to me because I love him, but I also like to keep him in the swing because even a little thing like him gets heavy if I have to just hold him all day!”
As previously stated, the Graco DuoGlider baby swing uses battery or a power cord to work. It has the option to move in a gliding motion, a bouncing seat and two vibration speeds all to keep your little one as comfortable and as happy as possible. The seat itself is able to be moved into three different positions and can recline or sit up to whichever your baby finds to be the most soothing.
The Graco DuoGlider baby swing also comes with some other great options to keep your little one comfortable and happy. It has six gliding speeds, so however fast or slow your little one prefers, you will be able to find one to keep her happy. It also has ten pre-programmed classic baby songs and five different nature sounds to help keep your little one entertained.
Along the top of the swing, there is a canopy that helps with shielding light if you choose to take your The Graco DuoGlider baby swing outside, and it also serves as a holding place for batable plush toy bears for your baby to play with. This product really has a lot of features designed to keep your baby as happy as possible. If you want a glider that has been made to keep your baby happy for an extended period of time, then this is a great option for you.
Some questions new mommies and daddies wanted to know about the The Graco DuoGlider baby swing before purchasing it:

Q: How tall off the ground is the baby seat? A: Approx. 3 feet
Q: Can I take it apart completely and put it together so it is easy to travel with? A: While it’s easy to take around your house, it is quite difficult to assemble and reassemble for travel.
Q: Can the straps be lengthened to accommodate my baby as she grows? A: Yes, the safety straps can be lengthened and shortened depending on your baby’s needs.
One of the things our parents like most about the The Graco DuoGlider baby swing was how attractive it is. It is a beautiful grey and cream color and fits nicely with almost any style in your home. There is nothing specifically too colorful to make it clash with any of your personal style, so it will make a nice addition to your decor. If you take a lot of time and effort into making your home match in a certain style, then you can rest assured that no matter what that style is, this product will fit in easily.
Another of our parents was very pleased with her swing:
“We have been using the Graco DuoGlider baby swing for a few months now, and have no complaints. Our daughter is always happy and comfortable in it, and I can recline it to fit how she is feeling with relative ease. I like how it looks in our home, and that is important to me. It matches pretty much everything because it isn’t full of flashy colors. Even though my baby reacts well to colors, I can always give her other toys, but for furniture, I like that this fits my preferences as well as hers.”
Some parents did have a few complaints about The Graco DuoGlider baby swing. A few parents did not find the sound system to be up to standard and thought the quality to be poor. They also were expecting the songs to be a bit more distinguishable, but thought they all sounded quite similar.
A few other parents were upset that this swing is not very easy to travel with. It has a very unique design which is not easy to take apart or put back together. If you want to travel with your baby often, and you want to bring the baby swing with you, then this swing could be difficult for you.
However, we really like the The Graco DuoGlider baby swing for all of its positives. We think the unique design is beautiful and the sun cover is a great feature for being able to bring it outside. We also like that it runs on different power sources and that it is attractive. We think that with this swing, you and your baby will be happy and it will be worth the money spent.
