Is baby swing necessary?

While the world is busy dealing with many issues due to the Coronavirus, the race to the presidency is slowly coming to an end in America. My family is receiving the good news that my cousin Daisy will give birth the end of February.

Daisy asked me about a hundred questions about the list of must-have for a baby. She reminded me about my pregnancy, and I would like to share with her as well as new mothers out there about that beautiful period.

On the blog today, I would like to write about baby swings. New parents usually concern, “Is a baby swing necessary?” A baby swing keeps calm your infant and becomes an effective supporter for parents. Your baby will love it.

With various designs and functions, a baby swing helps keep your child in a comfortable position instead of letting the baby lay down too much in a baby crib or a play mat. Do not worry about making your place become a daycare center; it is good to have all of them. In case you do not want to let your child on the ground and let he/she get more entertainment while you are doing something else, a baby swing is a better choice than a play mat.

Besides, multi-functions baby swings is a smart choice for who has a small space. They also help parents save money on special occasions when they need to travel with the child. Or a portable one can be a good option, with a half-full size and parents can take it and the baby everywhere in a flat. It can be folded to store in a closet easily. Even the article about Top 10 Best baby swings for big babies can also help you find which baby swings can hold the most weight.

In my opinion, the baby swing is super necessary and useful when my boy wanted to rock while sleeping. A baby swing to help sleeping. He could sleep a few hours on a swing. And Tom let me free to do house works while he looked at those toys hanging above. A baby swing can be a “massage chair” because it can vibrate, swing side to side or front to back.

Sometimes, Tom could sleep on a baby swing while Jonathan or I rest on a couch. Super convenience!

In the beginning, we borrowed a baby swing from Jonathan’s friend to checked if Tom really likes it. In the end, Tom got into it easily, and we decided to buy a new one for him. Parents can borrow or buy a used baby swing to try before deciding to invest in a super comfort baby swings. It is absolutely worthy.

I hope my sharing can help you answer the question, “is a baby swing necessary?” 😉
