Buy a larger swing? So we have everything in the "gear" part for baby #2. I think...



We even have a small swing. You now the ones that are not a full size (lol good explanation huh?) but it's low to the ground. Great for when we lived in a apartment with DS. But this time we have a house and more room in the living room. Would you upgrade to a full size swing? Our son liked both bouncer and swing while being a tiny newborn.

I wouldn't. The small one does the same thing as a larger one so why spend more money buying a bigger one just because you have more space?

If the travel swing was fine for your last, it'll probably be fine this time. Kids are funny...ours love the kind that swing side to side, so a full size swing is a must for us. Then you have babies who hate swings all together!



You could always get one and save the reciept.

If you had the $$$ I would. The travel ones aren't as versatile as the larger ones. If it would be a stretch I would hold off.

i prefer the larger size swing...my son quickly outgrew the travel swing..but the full size graco we have he still fits in at 12 months (tho i dont put him in it anymore.)
PLus with the travel swings..since its lower to the ground i feel that they can catch more of a draft in the cold weather.

The travel one was giving to us by my mom. She doesn't care if I sell it. But I love that I wouldn't have to bend too far down if I have a c/s again. That was a bitch. And I love the options of the swinging on the big ones. But I'm like "ugh we have a swing already" blah. A plug in would be amazing! Lol

go to a consignment shop and buy a used one! They covers can be washed. Or if you have facebook see if your area has a loca buy/sell/trade site

Like the travel swings? I would get a larger one :) My son loved both his swing and bouncer but then again we never had a travel swing.
