Our house has always been full of wonderful things like love, family, and fun. However, it’s also become more full with lots of other things with 3 littles ages 3 and under. With each kiddo comes the baby gear, transitioning into the toddler gear, and finally the toy madness of the preschool years. However, when you have one of each, space gets a tiny bit cramped (especially in our little 900 sq. ft. house!). Because of this, I always look for baby gear that can quickly and easily fold up out of the way when extra floor space is needed for things like playing games, movie nights, or a father-son wrestling fest… hehe. The Comfort & Harmony Portable Swing in Girafaloo does just that!
After I opened the box, we laid out all of the pieces to put the swing together. It only took us about 10 minutes since most of the parts slid together with spring loaded pins. We did have to grab a screwdriver from the toolbox to put in 4 screws and then unscrew the battery compartment to install 4 C batteries (not included).
Once together, I was impressed right away with the oversized plush seat and head support. They even thought to cushion the foot area so his heels were supported. The seat can adapt to 2 different positions with the Comfort Recline feature. The upright position is perfect right now for Ezra since he loves to look all around at his environment. For new squishy babies, the fully reclined position is just what they need, and cradles them really well.
Ezra loves to watch the plush bird and giraffe on the toy bar, and I love that the toy bar can be removed or just rotated out of the way for easy baby access. I also like that the buckle is covered on the front and back with super soft fabric so the buckle doesn’t irritate baby’s skin. As a plus, all of the fabric is machine washable and easy to remove.
The swing has a rotating knob to control the 6 different speeds of the swing, built with TrueSpeed technology that ensures the motion stays the same as baby grows and their weight increases. So unlike some swings that slow down as baby grows, the Comfort & Harmony swing stays the perfect speed by adjusting to baby’s weight, all the way up to 20 lbs. You can also choose from 6 different baby melodies with volume control that play while baby swings, and set a timer for 15, 30, or 45 minutes with an automatic shut-off . I do wish that there was a plug in option so we wouldn’t have to rely on just batteries, but the automatic shut-off does a great job at preserving battery life. It was perfect for Ezra and he almost fell asleep in the few minutes I took to get a video of him enjoying it!
But the best part of the Comfort & Harmony Portable Swing for us is that portable factor. The swing can quickly and easily fold up flat enough to be stowed under the crib, in the closet, or easily be placed in the trunk of the van to go to Mamaw’s house. So when it’s time for more wrestling on the floor, the swing can easily be packed up and moved.
