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.
Some 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.
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!

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 Walmart.com 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!
