Best Baby Swings for Small Spaces

Best Baby Swings for Small Spaces

I TOTALLY understand how important it is to get a small baby swing that fits your small apartment or nursery space.

Whether you want your baby swing to soothe and entertain your baby or to just keep your baby relaxing as you go about your job at home, you need a small one if there is not a lot of space at home

Below is our list of the best baby swings for small spaces:

Reviews of Top Small Swings for Small Spaces 2019 and 2020:

Below are reviews of the swings most ideal for any small space. Let’s start with our overall best, the SpaceSaver Swing by Fisher-Price.

1. Fisher-Price SpaceSaver Swing & Seat, Luv U Zoo

Fisher-Price Spacesaver swings is our overall best swing for small spaces in this 2019 and 2020 list. I like this swing most because it is not as expensive yet you get a small footprint, occupying less than 500 square inches.

Below are some of the features that make this Fisher-Price the best in the list:

  1. Measures; 23.5 x 24 x 28 in
  2. Weight recommendation of 6 to 20 pounds
  3. Age recommendation from infancy/newborns to 20 pounds weight limitation. There is no distinct upper-limit age recommendation
  4. Powered by a battery.

I like this baby swing the most because it is small but it’s also great that you can be able to carry it around the house from room to room easily. You can easily pass from room doors without any problem – if the doors are the standard American doors.

It also takes very few minutes to assemble it. One parent commented that he remembers it taking less than 10 minutes and that it didn’t require any special skills or special tools to assemble it.

Aside from swinging, this baby swing also vibrates and can play music to your little one to soothe them. You can rely on 5 swing speeds and music volume controls to let you customize what you think might get your baby excited about this great swing.

2. Graco Simple Sway Baby Swing

Graco Simple stands true to its name. It’s a simple sway swing that came second in our list of compact swings for any home with limited space. The genius in this swing is in the compact design of the frames. Over 1,600 parents agree that it’s frame design truly makes it fit for any small space with an average rating of 3.9/5.

Below are other features I like about this swing:

  1. 2-speed vibration to help keep your baby calm and relaxed
  2. plush seat with removable head support keeps your little one cozy 
  3. Manufactured by Graco
  4. 10 songs and 5 nature sound to soothe and amuse your baby.
  5. 6 swing speeds allow you to choose the right pace to suit your baby’s mood.
  6. 5-point harness for safety
  7. 3 soft toys for visual stimulation
  8. Uses 5D rechargeable batteries with 4 hours battery life
  9. Weight recommendation: 5 to 30 pounds
  10. Weighs 17.2 pounds
  11. Currently the #2 best in Stationary Baby Swings category in Amazon.

Below is a video review of this compact swing:

3. 4moms rockaRoo Compact Baby Swing

Our third best swing is the 4Moms Rockaroo and is a third the size of a traditional baby swing making it the perfect one for your limited space. It has a back and front swing motion that is not as fast and considered among the most comfortable for babies.

Below is a video review of this 4Moms small swing:

Below are other features that make this swing great for your home:

  1. It has MP3 plug in to play music
  2. It does not use batteries but requires AC
  3. Not the cheapest as it goes for over $150.
  4. it has 5 speeds
  5. It is easy to remove and the covers are machine washable
  6. Manufactured by Mamaroo.

Below is a video showing the difference between Rockaroo and Mamaroo:

4. Graco EveryWay Soother

Graco Everywhere is our fourth best soother and it made to this list specifically because I like a swing that is small and doubles as a rocker (not just a swing). Its design is modern and uses AC power (not batteries) but the biggest advantage of this Graco brand is its lightweight. You can count on it to take limited space and can also be confident that you will be able to confidently carry it around as you want it.

Aside from being a swing with multiple uses, it has the following great features that will make you appreciate it, on top of it saving you space:

  1. It measures; 28 x 25.5 x 35 inches
  2. Weight limit of 5. 5 pounds to 25 pounds for the swing and 5.5 pounds to 18 pounds for the rocker
  3. Recommended for infants to toddlers with a weight limit of 25 pounds
  4. You can use a 110V outlet to power this swing and rocker for squeezed space.

While this swing comes at a low price, your baby can enjoy the following:

  1. 16 soothing motions (8 angles to swing and 6 swing speeds)
  2. 2-speed soothing vibration
  3. 3-position recline
  4. 15 songs
  5.  soft interactive toys
  6. infant head support that can be removed
  7. 5-point harness

Below is a demonstration of this swing and rocker:

5. Bright Starts Safari Smiles Portable Swin

I initially had mixed feelings about adding this swing to this list, not because of space. I didn’t think they match the other ones in this list but its price is very low and enticing making it ideal for any parent on a tight budget. For less than $50 you can get yourself this small-space swing that is powered by batteries with a removable toy bar.

After learning about Bright Starts, the award-winning company behind this brand, I was impressed by what they’ve achieved. They have over 100 innovative activity centers, play gyms, bouncers, swings, playards, and toys.

Below are features that I like most about this swing that makes it ideal for any parent occupying a small space/apartment/house/home:

  1. It’s size is 22.4 x 28.4 x 22.8 in
  2. Weight recommendation of 6lbs to 20lbs
  3. Recommended for infants until they get to 9 months
  4. Powered by 4 size C batteries
  5. 6 swing speeds
  6. 2 recline positions
  7. Easy to fold and to travel with
  8. 5-point harness

Pros: The toy bars are removable, easy to fold design, Very affordable and safe with the 5-point harness

Cons: No music and doesn’t vibrate.

Best Baby Wraps and Slings and Comparisons

I have simplified this post to highlight key features of 9 best baby wraps you can find in the market in 2020. Before I review of the 9, here is some background on baby wrapping and baby wearing.

I wasn’t new to wraps and babywearing when I started this research on the best baby wraps and slings available on the market today. I have been part of a babywearing group in Houston and have taught hundreds of mums on the ways to wear your baby.

For my first two kids, I used several baby wraps and as an expert, I have been exposed to over 20 baby wrap brands such as Moby, Solly, and Boba. This gives me a basis to give advice you can rely on when it comes to babywearing and how to pick the best baby carrier in the market.

Before going through the reviews of each of our 10 select wraps you can choose from, let’s go through some essential basics:

What is a baby wrap?

A wrap is a piece of clothing that you can use to create a nest for your baby just like the birds do. I call it the nest as a wrap is created when you tie and knot the long fabric around yourself. The wrap will position itself around your torse and over your shoulders, distributing the baby’s weight across your shoulders and hips.

One big and significant difference that sets apart wraps from other carriers is that it does not have clasps, rings or buckles. You can rely on wraps from when your baby is a newborn to 18 months.

Do you need a wrap?

This question brings up another question, how long can you tolerate holding a baby with both of your hands. A wrap enables you to wear your baby just like you would with clothes enabling you to use your hands freely. You can opt for portable loungers or swings but wraps can give you back the freedom you need as a parent.

Simple answer, Yes. You need a baby wrap.

Comes our most important questions:

What is the best baby wrap in 2020?

It’s no secret now in 2020 that Boba Wrap which has been the best-selling wrap on Amazon for 28 months straight is the overall best baby wrap you can find.

Its soft french terry cloth and its size variety make it ideal for almost any baby. For extra comfort, the fabric of Boba wrap stretches a bit but you can count on it not to sag.

However, to write this list of best baby wraps and slings, I sought extensive comments, feedback, and reviews from 23 mothers who had used the wraps for at least 3 months. I wanted to make sure that we came up with the best list of wraps you can rely on for your baby from when they are just newborn to at least 2 years.

Baby Wrap vs Sling (the difference between a baby wrap and sling)

Baby Wrap Baby Sling
 Can be worn in multiple ways Unlike other baby carriers, it is not structured.
It may be quite hard to put on your first time using it and usually takes longer to put on than the sling.Easy to put on even the first time
Wraps max out at about 35 pounds so if you have a chunky infant they may outgrow it with time. They are best for newborns and smaller babies only. As they get older, they get heavier.
It has better support for the baby, so they tend to do better for active babies and works for a longer period of time. They work best with a sleeping baby or one that is not as active.
They have been around for ages, hence it is a proven baby carrying tool.  They are affordable and you can even make your own. And it is can be made of breathable material, therefore it is good for the baby.

Where to buy, Amazon, Walmart and other stores

10 Best Hip Seat Carriers & Hip Hugger Carriers

It can be the most exciting thing to experience the baby in your arms after a successful delivery. When I had my first-borns, I started using a carrier within 3 months and by the time my twins were 6 months old, I had developed back pains, shoulder pains, and backaches. I think the realization that you could offer all the cuddles to your little one as he wants. It took me another 6 months that included some detailed research on baby carriers.

I finally settled on Boba Wrap Baby Carrier below:

Hip Seat Carriers Advantages and Disadvantages:

  • Promotes bonding – When holding your baby in the hip seat, your bodies are so close together, and you can communicate at eye level. This enables you to share a special bond with your child.
  • Supports the baby in the recommended ergonomic position – When the baby sits in the wide seat, the spine is supported, and hips are spread out naturally, promoting natural hip development.
  • Helps to distribute your baby’s weight around your lower torso evenly – When using a hip seat, your child’s weight will be distributed on your waist and hip. You can also shift the baby between the left and right side to evenly distribute the weight.
  • Versatile – Hip seat enables you to carry the baby in different positions depending on your child’s age. (Outward-facing, inward-facing, feeding position with the hip seat detached)
  • They are designed to grow with your baby – Depending on the specific brand, you can use a hip seat from the time your baby is 4 months old until they are 3 years old.
  • They are very convenient – Hips seats are lightweight and come with many pockets to conveniently stow your essentials while on the move. Also, because they do not have a large footprint, you can go anywhere with your baby in them.
  • You can carry the baby in your arms longer and comfortably – A hip seat takes the weight of your child from your hips and back onto the seat; therefore, you can wear the baby for long periods without tiring your arms or back.
  • Relieves shoulder and back straining and keeps you standing upright – Unlike some forward-facing carriers and backpack carriers, your hips, waist, and legs take the bulk of your child’s weight rather than your back and shoulders. With a hip seat, you won’t be hunched over or be pulled backward like you can be with most traditional carriers, especially when carrying a toddler

Disadvantages/Cons

  • Not suitable for newborns – Hip seats lack head and neck support rendering them unsuitable for newborns and young babies.
  • Not suitable for people with lower back or hip problems – Although hip seats have a wide waist strap, the weight is still directed on the lower back and hips, so they might aggravate existing lower back or hip problems.

Is a hip seat carrier ergonomic?

A hip seat has a wide base that keeps the baby’s hips spread out naturally, the thighs supported, and the knees bent to keep the legs from hanging or dangling. This position is the M shape seated position and also keeps the spine straightened. 

Are hip seat carriers safe?

A hip seat is safe so long as it provides proper support, and your baby is held securely in it.

When to use hip seat carrier

Hip seat carriers are not recommended for newborns, but they can be used for infants and toddlers from about 6 months to 3 years old, depending on the specific carrier and its weight limit. But you must make sure that your baby can support their neck and head first, which usually happens between 4 months and 6 months.

What Style Baby Carrier Is Best?

There is no simple answer to this since carriers fall under different styles. Also, one style might appeal to you when your baby is an infant, only for it not to work for you when they are toddlers. The best advice is to explore different styles, and once you have gotten your preferred style, then compare the brands and their performance until you can narrow down to a style and brand that addresses you and your baby’s needs. Also, keep in mind to check if it allows proper positioning to prevent hip dysplasia.

Below are the most common styles in the market currently:

Wraps: A Long piece of stretchy fabric that you tie around your body

Ring sling: A long piece of fabric (usually not stretchy) with two rings on one end that allows you to adjust the tightness to your body while carrying the baby.

Meh dai or mei tai: Asian-style carrier that combines features of a wrap and structured carrier, but instead of buckles, you use ties. Mei tai has two wide, padded straps that go around the waist and another two that go around the shoulders of the parent.

Soft structured carrier: These carriers have padded shoulder straps and adjustable waistbands.

Backpacks/ structured carrier: these carriers have a frame, usually aluminum, and are worn like a backpack. You can only use them with a child who has good neck control. They are designed mainly for hikes.

Which Carrier Is Best for Your Back?

The hip seat carrier is best because it has a wide strap that provides you with Lumbar support in and keeps your back upright. Sitting baby on the padded hip seat, instead of your hip, prevents you from curving your back while keeping baby close to your body and supported. Additionally, the wide waistband provides comfort for your waist and back.

Why Many Choose a Hip Seat Carrier

  • It is designed to grow with your baby from the time they are about 4 to 6 months until about four years, depending on the model.
  • Hip seat carriers are easy to put on and remove than traditional carriers
  • They offer many carrying positions for you and the baby to enjoy
  • The baby seats in an ergonomic position allowing their hips to develop naturally
  • They do not strain the shoulders and back because the weight is evenly distributed on the hips, pelvis, and legs.
