Ingenuity Portable Baby Swing Overview
Babies and parents alike love the Ingenuity Portable Baby Swing. Babies love it because it is comfortable and cozy. And moms and dads love that it is safe and convenient to use.
You can easily move it from room to room while doing housework, cooking dinner, taking a shower, or having a cup of coffee, and pop your baby into so you can keep an eye on them.
The Ingenuity Portable Baby Swing is very compact, light enough to move easily, and it folds to store. This makes it ideal for tiny spaces, or to take on the road when traveling or visiting grandma and grandpa.
While its footprint is small, its seat offers ample room for a growing baby. The soft and supportive seat pad has a U-shaped contoured headrest.
Both can be spot-cleaned or removed and machine-washed, then tumble-dried when required. The frame can be wiped clean with a damp soapy cloth if need be.
The seat’s angle adjusts to two different positions by pressing a button on either side then pushing it back. It doesn’t lay fully flat, but it must be used in the reclined position with the head support in place until your little one is four months old or can support their neck unaided.
A five-point safety harness will keep your child safely in the swing so they won’t slip or wriggle out.
The swing’s frame is reasonably sturdy, but there may be some slight movement when placing the baby into and taking them out of the seat. The seat is close to the floor for added stability. Non-slip feet keep the unit in place, so you need not fear that it will tip over.
Six swing speeds are available. Equipped with TrueSpeed™ technology, this detects the baby’s weight and adjusts accordingly to ensure that the swing speed stays consistent as the baby grows and gets heavier.
The swinging motion can be integrated manually and adjusted faster or slower by turning a dial. Alternatively, you can use the integrated timer to move the swing back and forth for 30, 45, or 60 minutes.
The Ingenuity Comfort 2 Go Portable Swing offers 8 soothing melodies and 4 nature sounds. A sound control button allows you to adjust the volume. Alternatively, your baby can swing without sound.
Something to be aware of is that the batteries will run flat after about 24 hours of use, so it’s a good idea to be a spare set.
A removable overhead toy bar contains two plush padded toys for baby to touch and swat at. The toys vary depending on the model you select. (See the specs above for details.)
The Ingenuity Cozy Kingdom Portable Swing comes with a 1-year warranty.
