Top 5 Best Baby Swings | 2017 Reviews
You never realize how much “stuff” there is to buy for a baby, until you have your own. Sure, you know you’ll need a crib, and a changing table, and a bassinette. Oh, and a baby chair, and a playpen, and don’t forget the stroller and the – well, you get the picture. You don’t need a bigger apartment or house for the new human addition to your family. You need to upscale just to have a place to put all of the “stuff.”
A baby swing can seem like just one more item on a long list, until your baby arrives and you find yourself pacing back and forth for hours trying to convince her to give up and doze off for a little while. At that point, you realize that a quality baby swing may be the most indispensible of all of the new “stuff” in your now-crowded home. It makes sense, when you think about it; the motion of the swing replicates the safe, soothing motion she grew accustomed to during months in the womb.
It’s not a good idea to use a swing in place of a crib or cradle, since too much rocking can make a baby dizzy. But for short periods of time, a good baby swing can let both an infant and an exhausted mom get the breaks they need from the 24 hours a day they spend together.
In this list of the top 5 best baby swings, we’ll check out models with different speed, motion and sound options; we won’t go too much into detail on their safety, though, since we wouldn’t dream of listing a “best” baby swing that wasn’t completely safe for the most important person in your life. We’ll also focus on full-sized swings rather than portable ones (although we will mention one portable model for completeness), since most of today’s best baby swings are portable “enough” to be moved from room to room in a house.
