When it comes to being a new parent, one thing is for sure… you’ve GOT to have a swing.

As any “well seasoned” parent will agree, this piece of baby gear is a true lifesaver. You can’t spend every waking moment holding baby but they love to rock. It’s very soothing to them and with today’s technologically advanced swings such as the Up, Up & Away Sway & Swing (created by Bright Starts), your baby can be swinging and swaying to music and nature sounds as they’re lulled into sweet slumber.

1386020845_unnamedSome of my favorite features about the Up, Up & Away Sway & Swing is the location of the control pad. It’s right up in the front and easily accessible (without leaning over baby). Plus, the sounds and swinging functions are ran by either batteries or an AC adapter. The adapter is a must in my opinion because products like these can really suck the batteries up since they’re used so frequently.

Another feature I love is that the seat can be rotated so baby is swinging from front to back or side to side. If you live in tight quarters, this is great because baby can be facing you no matter what.

Sit back, recline & enjoy!

The seat is also adequately sized for a growing baby. And the harness has 3 separate adjustment settings so when baby grows a bit longer, the straps can be lengthened and they can be moved up— making it the most comfy seat in the house.

The brushed polyester green, blue, orange and taupe colored fabric with a whimsical zebra, turtle and lion is attractive and great for boys and girls. And guess what… this seat is easily removed for laundering. Woohoo, gotta love that!

1.) Sound & Swing control panel  2.) Comfort Recline adjusters
3.) Removable seat pad  4.) 5 point harness

Something else that’s great about this swing is that it offers 6 speed selections to accommodate baby as he or she grows, from newborn and up. And the timer can be adjusted for 30, 45, and 60 minute intervals.

This swing also comes with a fun little mobile with two adorable plastic toys— a zebra and a turtle. It pivots out of the way when you need to remove baby from the seat. One thing I would love to see improved is the length of the arm on the mobile, making viewing for baby a whole lot easier.


1.) Side swinging
2.) Forward swinging in the reclined position

Overall we love the Up, Up & Away Sway & Swing. Baby E is really enjoying it, he even likes watching the arm of the swing as it moves back and forth. It does a great job keeping him satisfied while mommy is busy doing other hands-free things around the house.


The Bright Starts Up, Up & Away Sway & Swing is available at as well as Amazon (RV $99.99).

If you’re looking for a great gift to give a new mom & dad or looking to replace an old swing, I highly recommend the Up, Up & Away Sway & Swing from Bright Starts. With all of the wonderful features you get, it’s definitely worth the price and so much more!

    I love it. I so wish they had this stuff when I had babies.

  • Karen says:

    This is an amazing swing, we received the same one from the program and my 6week daughter loves it and I get to do chores :) Win Win

  • Brenda Brown says:

    I love this! I also love how the swing looks like it can be for either gender!
    Hi Baby E! Come see Bre K? I will keep you and shower you with kisses! LOL

  • Dee @ Bella Savvy says:

    Aww, you’re sweet Brenda. I’m sure he would love the kisses. He gets plenty from me. 😀

  • Megan K says:

    These look really nice, but my husband was always worried about the baby falling “too far”… so we went with a lower to the ground one… maybe next baby he won’t be so scared and we can get one like this! I like that it swings from side to side as well.

  • denise says:

    The baby is really cute. Love his grown up socks.

  • Sandra VanHoey says:

    Makes me really miss not having babies around anymore in the family. Baby E is just a little doll

  • lisa says:

    A swing is a must have. Especially if you have a fussy baby.

  • Jennifer Hiles says:

    I really like that it has 20 minutes of melodies and nature sounds. My daughter was really calmed by nature sounds when she was a baby. It’s nice that you don’t have to go over and constantly restart it every 5 minutes.

  • Eileen Richter says:

    I love the side swing feature on this one. I never would have gotten anything done when my 3rd child was born with colic. The baby swing SAVED me! Todays swings are so elite and colorful, so feature-full and fun! How can baby E say no to THAT! He’s so rootin’ tootin’ cute!

  • lisa says:

    There are so many neat features. I remember when a baby swing was only that. It’s great that it can be laundered.

  • Mer says:

    This looks so convenient! I like how it grows with baby, thanks to the different speeds and positions.

  • Stephen says:

    I’ve never seen anything like it! Thanks for sharing
