It has been 6 years since Alyssa was a baby and so many things have changed over that time and now that we have Hannah I am thankful for products that I used back in the day with the kids that I can now use. When researching swings and pack n’ plays I felt overwhelmed but always found myself back where I was comfortable – with Graco. So when Graco reached out to me to try out their newest products it was a quick yes. Graco sent us the Pack ‘n Play® Playard Newborn Napper® Oasis with Soothe Surround™ Technology and Duet Oasis™ Swing with Soothe Surround™ Technology. However for this I am going to make your life easier and focus one post for each item so you are not overwhelmed and this one is focusing on the the Duet Oasis™ Swing with Soothe Surround™ Technology.
Graco Duet Oasis™ Swing with Soothe Surround™ Technology
A swing is a must for us – all of ours kids have been “swing kids”, they loved being in the swing as much as they loved being held. It was also the place that they slept during nap time. When you have multiple kids running around the house spending an hour to get a baby to nap in the crib is just not feasible and so with the exception of McKenzie all of my kids took naps in their swings in our living room. That has been no exception with Hannah either.
This swing is easy to put together, the directions were easy to follow which is a BIG thing for me. As so many products have crazy hard to follow directions.
The Duet Oasis™ Swing with Soothe Surround™ Technology has awesome features that Hannah seems to enjoy. Personally I have never had a baby hit 30 pounds while needing a swing, however this swing has a high weight limit for those who need it. We just might need the high weight limit this time around though as at 5 months old Hannah is 16 pounds!
There are 3 different directions that the swing can swing and then you have a rocker as well. Using the swing and switching between the different ways to use it are easy. I figured the best way to show you was with a video 🙂 So check it out 🙂
When in swing mode there are 6 swing speeds, which is great for how fast your baby likes to swing. There are also different vibration settings on the seat, that can be used when in swing mode or in rocker chair mode Plus there are 10 different sound/vibration modes to pick from too! This swing gives a lot of variation to change things up for baby when they are using the swing!
Plus I can not forget to mention that this swing can be used plugged into the wall!! You can use batteries too but you can save a TON of money by being able to plug it into the wall! Plus that also means you are not having a crying baby because the swing batteries died 😉
So far we are loving the swing, I love how easy it is to use and of course I love that Hannah loves it!
