Tips for using a swing correctly:
Use the Swing to Soothe
Baby swings are well-loved for a reason. “For some infants during the ‘fourth trimester,’ swinging is incredibly soothing in nature,” says Alanna McGinn, a certified sleep consultant and founder of the Good Night Sleep Site. She points to pediatrician Dr. Harvey Karp’s technique for soothing crying or fussy infants, which includes the five S’s: swaddle, side or stomach position, shush, suck and swing. According to Dr. Karp, using a swing recreates the rocking motion of being in the womb, which is especially helpful for calming newborns.
Don’t Let Your Baby Snooze in the Swing
The swing might be your baby’s version of relaxing in a hammock, but sleeping while swinging should be kept to a minimum. “A baby swing isn’t meant to act as a sleep environment,” says Amy Lage, a pediatric sleep consultant and founder of Well Rested Baby. The sleep that your child gets in a swing is not as beneficial as sleep that happens in a stationary location. During motion sleep, it’s hard for your baby’s brain to get into a restorative state, explains Lage, which could mean that your child is building up a sleep debt whenever she uses the swing.
“Once your child reaches 2 months of age, put away the unnecessary sleep prop,” she says. If your baby does fall asleep in the swing, pick her up and carefully move her to the crib. When she fusses, stay with her and rub her back until she falls back to sleep. And then if you find that your little one will only fall asleep in the swing, try rocking, walking around with her, giving her a pacifier, or using some sleep training tricks to teach her to self soothe.
Check Safety Recommendations
Your baby’s swing likely comes with its own manual, but following a few general rules will ensure that the swing is safe for your little one. Before picking out a top-of-the-line model, check that it meets the AAP’s safety regulations. Young infants under 4 months should always use the most reclined swing position, and if the seat adjusts to a 50-degree angle or more, use shoulder straps to keep your baby secure.
While rocking, the seat should remain fairly flat to ensure that she doesn’t fall out. Check the swing carefully to make sure that it doesn’t tip over easily, and make sure that your baby can’t pull off any toys or mobiles on the swing that could pose a choking risk. Also, remember that you can’t just put your baby in a swing and leave him. Keep your baby within your line of vision or do frequent checks if he happens to fall asleep.
