If you are expecting for your first baby you will probably go out and spend money on many items for the new member of your family. Some will be very usefull and some will hardly ever get used at all. One of the items that will be very useful to you is a baby swing. The one featured here in the picture is a Graco swing that we purchased two years ago when my youngest was first born so the newest models are sure to look a little different. My sister - in- law purchased one more recently and they do come in different colours. I have purchased several Graco products and am very satified with the price and quality of the products. In addition, this model is operated with D batteries so you will not have to get up and wind the swing. It is nice and comfortable so as to allow your baby to fall asleep. It comes with a tray with a cup holder spot for snack time. In addition, you can programme the speed, and have a wide selection of sounds and music to sooth your baby back to sleep.
