Basic Features of a Baby Swing

Ergonomic Seat

Although most swings are designed in a standard cradle-shape, a good baby swing will have an ergonomic shape to ensure complete support to the baby's head, neck, and back. As a baby uses the swing in very early stages of development, it is essential to select a swing that has the right shape, to ensure the baby's safety.

Safety Harness

Swings come with safety harnesses, such as 5-point harnesses or 3-point harnesses to keep your baby secure inside the swing’s seat.

Removable Head Support

A removable head support will help your baby comfortably recline when playing with the toys hanging overhead. Since baby swings can be used right from a baby’s birth, it is necessary that they provide adequate head and neck support till the baby develops neck balance.

Reclining Seat

Most swings provide at least 2 reclining positions -an upright one, a lying down one. These can be used according to when you baby wants to sit or sleep.

Child Tray

A child tray is a handy feature for when you want to place something in front of your baby to eat or play with while swinging slowly.

Removable and Washable Seat Cover

Most baby swings come with removable, machine-washable seat covers. Ease of washing the seat cover is of utmost priority since it is inevitable that there will be some spillages or soiling when you are using the baby swing.

Toy Bar

A toy bar is an arch-shaped fixture that runs above the child seat, from which you can hang your baby's favourite soft toys, colourful dancing lights, etc. to amuse your little one. Almost all good brands of baby swings provide a toy bar.

DC Battery Slot

Some swings come with a built-in DC battery slot. Most of the battery-operated swings offer portability. As you will have to spend a lot on the batteries later, look for a baby swing that is battery-operated and can run with electrical power.

Motion, Speed, Sound and Light Control Unit

Most baby swings offer a control panel which allows specific Motion, Speed, Sound and light settings in accordance to your baby's preference.

Sturdy Frame

Most swings come with a sturdy, stable structure, that is capable of supporting your baby’s weight and staying firm on the surface you place them. Even in portable or lighter versions, you can choose designs that provide greater stability to the entire swing.
