When to Start and Stop using a Baby Swing


Baby Swings are excellent companions for babies and a friendly solution for moms looking to provide a perfect comfort zone for their infants. However, you need to be aware of their specifications and limitations, so as to not misuse them, for the sake of your child's safety. Consider the following pointers before you decide to use a baby swing for your child.

Age Limit


Baby swings can be used right from birth till your child reaches toddlerhood. However, if your baby is a preemie, you might want to consult your paediatrician to ascertain if a swing will be suitable for your child. Every baby swing comes with a prescribed age limit. Check if the age limit specified in a model is suitable for your child.

Weight Limit


Most manufacturers claim that their swings can hold up to 13.5 kg. However, it is recommended to stop using swings when the baby reaches around 11-12 kg. Bigger and heavier babies run the risk of upending the swing or breaking it and getting injured in the process.

Duration


Although there is no doubt that baby swings can be great companions to babies, you must resist the temptation to let them hang around in the swing for longer periods of time. Experts recommend not more than 15 minutes per day of swing time, keeping in mind the safety of children and the emotional and physical bonding with the parents that is so necessary at their tender age.
A baby swing can be used to:
  • Calm down your baby � It provides the right swinging motion to keep your baby calm and comfortable.
  • Help your child sleep � If your baby starts becoming restless while you are busy cooking or cleaning, just shift your baby to a baby swing and allow the baby to take a nap. You can also move this gadget anywhere around your house, so you can keep an eye on your baby without disturbing baby's nap while working.
  • Entertain your child � You can add fun accessories to the swing to entertain your child. Features like music, toys, lights, etc. can help develop your baby's observational skills while letting the child have a great time.
