Up up and away!!!! All right, so your babies won't be going that high, but the gentle and soothing back and forth motion of a baby swing is all they will need to keep smiling. When it comes to finding ways to calming down your little one, every parent should have one of these on hand. Not only will the swing entertain your baby, it will provide you with a much needed break in the day. It may only be for a few minutes, but in the world of parenting it will make all the difference.
When it comes to choosing a swing you may find yourself confused and asking lots of questions like "Which do I choose?" and "Is it safe?" Parenthood is filled with many questions, and sometimes it takes a lot of trial and error to find the answers. This guide may not have all the answers to parenting, but at the very least it can provide you with some help when it comes to purchasing the right baby swing.
To make swing time a fun time, safety is key! When looking for a swing, make sure it comes with a seatbelt and that it has a wide base and low center of gravity as to accommodate babies actively moving bodies. Baby's happy giggling with quickly turn to hear-piercing cries if he manages to squirm himself out of the swing and land smack right onto the floor. Now, that would be bloody awful!
Battery vs. wind-up
When it comes to choosing between a battery operated or a wind-up swing, either is fine. It's strictly a matter of preference. A battery operated one can prove expensive as it means having to replace batteries periodically, but a wind-up swing can be quite noisy while winding it up and won't last very long. In the end, the choice is up to you!
Speed and Sound:
Even babies can be picky, especially when it comes to how they like to be lulled to sleep. Some babies like a fast motion while others prefer to be rocked at a much slower speed. It is good idea to look for swings with adjustable speeds. The type of sound the swing makes can also be a make or break factor. One sound may not work for all babies. A swing should come with a variety of sounds so you can find one just right for baby.
