@janiep81 we have a video monitor. I insist on a closed system. So not one that uses your phone but that has its own viewer. They are harder to hack than those that connect over WiFi to a variety of devices. Not impossible but harder. I’ve worked in sex offender treatment for a long time. I have some extra paranoia and did lots of research before finding something I was comfortable with.

@mrszoobear we have the Graco Slim Spaces swing from DS. I liked that it was able to be folded up and moved but it also got a bit taller than the other portable swings. We actually have two (one at our house and one at my parents because they watched him for awhile before we started daycare.). We got them both used in great shape for $25 each. DS1 was ok with it for short times. He liked the bouncer better.
This time we have more space (new house) and got a used Mamaroo for $70. I'm willing to spend that amount of money but not the $225 they normally cost. Not worth it.
