Pack It: A Travel Swing
The baby swing is nicknamed The Baby Pacifier for a reason. For many tots, just a few minutes in the contraption is all it takes to soothe them to sleep. Unfortunately, they're often large and unwieldy, making them impossible for traveling families. Bright Starts' Blossomy Blooms Portable Swing ($30-$63) makes it possible to lull baby off to sleep whether you're at the beach or grandma's house, as it folds up for easy portability.
