Should I choose a portable or standard swing?


Portable swings are convenient in the obvious fact that you can easily move them from room to room. They’re lightweight and smaller than standard swings, so they may work well for a home where space is tight. Standard swings sit up higher, which makes it easier to load and unload your baby to and from the swing. They take up more space, so you’ll want to be sure you have a spot in your home with adequate room.

How do I ensure my swing is safe?


This is the most important factor to consider when purchasing a baby swing. Look for a swing with a five-point harness or restraint system so your baby doesn’t slip or climb out. Also, be sure that the swing has a wide base and low center of gravity to reduce the potential of tipping over. To ensure your baby’s comfort, look for padding and an infant head support.

Should my swing have a recliner?


If you plan to use the swing from infancy to older baby, a recline option is definitely suggested. This way, you can customize it to lean further back for a newborn who can’t support his or her own head, and sit upright as the baby becomes stronger. Reclines are helpful for older babies too: when they fall asleep, you can tip them back for added comfort.

Should I consider baby swings that come with trays?


Make sure the tray is either flip-out or fold-up so you can remove a sleeping baby with ease. Even when awake, a portable tray will help you avoid accidentally scratching your baby’s legs on the edge of the tray.

What type of motion is best for my child?


Swings generally move from side-to-side, back-to-front or both. Every baby is different on what he or she prefers: unless you settle on one that has both options, test them out with your baby before making the purchase. Babies also respond differently to the speed of the swing, so it may be wise to find something with several options to best suit your baby.

Should I choose a wind-up or battery-powered swing?

Battery powered swings tend to be more convenient; although you need to consistently purchase new batteries. They’re quieter and offer different and more speeds. Wind-up swings are generally less expensive but consider that you’ll have the task of winding them by hand which can be noisy, particularly for a napping baby.
