There is so much variety to choose from in the best baby swings. Most of these portable swings can hold up to twenty five pounds easily. There is plush oversized seats with different swing speeds and reclines in many positions. The timer on these normally run every fifteen minutes and going up to as high as forty five minutes. This is a nifty option as Mom and Dad can take this time to tend to other matters while still being able to watch the baby sleep comfortably.
With a deluxe baby swing there is music that will sway the infant to sleep gently. There is an auto shut feature that can be handy when Mom or Dad is busy with changing diapers or feeding. This is a nice feature as this would save on batteries or if there is an AC Plug it would save on electricity.
A majority of these swings are detachable so Mom or Dad can use as a baby carrier to and from friends or family’s homes with ease. There are some that will even match the designs to the stroller and will work side by side with the baby swings.
Most of these swings sway back and forth but there are some that will also rock the infant from side to side. This feature can be a great way for parents to grab a quick bit to eat or if the baby is fussy. Some babies fall right to sleep once the swing is in motion and some just like to laugh and giggle. Either way, this is a great piece to add to the babies collection of furniture.
Baby swings normally run on batteries and can run up to approximately two hundred hours. There are some swings that have an AC plug in feature as well. This can come in handy especially if batteries are scarce or if there’s a dead battery.
One of the best features is that most will come with machine washable plush seat covers. This can come in handy as babies at this age can spill continuously. Wear and tear will come naturally as the baby ages but with washable features this can stretch the life of the swing.
Additional toys can be hung from the top of the infant’s swing to amuse the infant when the need arises. This can be a fun feature for the baby to look at while the swing is being used as a carriage. Many babies just like to look at bright objects hanging from their swings.
