The Graco DuetSoothe Swing and Rocker is yet another outstanding baby item in a long line of Graco items that provides soothing comfort in a dual feature baby swing that comes with three seating position options. Your baby can be rocked side to side or swing front to back to the sound of gentle nature sounds or soft music.
The brilliant design features benefits that keep both baby and mom in mind. For moms, Graco has built this baby swing in such a way that she can easily pick up the dual function seat and take it with her when she needs to leave the room while her baby can continue to enjoy the soothing comfort of the baby bouncer portion of the swing.
The Graco DuetSoothe Swing and Rocker is a part of the Winslet Collection and boasts an extensive list of features. The removable seat that features a 5-point harness includes a two-speed vibration feature and doubles as a swing or rocker in addition to a bouncer. The swing itself has six speeds to satisfy your baby’s different moods.
The seat is made of plush fabric and also features an infant head support and plays 10 different melodies or one of five different nature sounds. A soft toy mobile with three toys is also included. Another great feature is the dual-power capabilities.
The seat can be plugged into an electrical outlet or run on batteries. A one year limited warranty is also included. The swing is designed for babies 5.5 lbs up to 30 lbs.
Other baby items in the Winslet Collection include a 4-in-1 high chair, Travel Lite Crib and Pack n Play Playard with Cuddle Cove Rocking Seat. The Graco DuetSoothe Swing and Rocker is available as part of the Wiinslet Collection (reviewed here) or the Sapphire Collection of Graco baby items.

All in all the Graco DuetSoothe Swing and Rocker is a great swing. While there are some negative reviews on the noise of the swing, there did not seem to be any reviews indicating that the baby did not like it. For the most part the most important opinion (the baby) was positive. It’s a good quality, comfortable swing with a lot of bells and whistles.
When reading some baby swing reviews that are fairly critical I often wonder if they remember the vinyl bucket seat swings that you had to constantly wind the crank to get some short lived up and back action. All three of my boys were Graco swing babies with my youngest being privy to the extra bells and whistles that these models include these days!
So, as a mom that didn’t quite have to crank the swing to keep it going but until baby #3 did not have features such as cradle swinging features in addition to front to back or the ability to pick up the seat and take it with me around the house. For my first two I had a swing and a vibrating bouncy seat. Today’s baby options allow for fewer pieces but all the same features!
