Baby swings are excellent for little toddlers. Your baby would surely have enjoyed a self-propelled indoor bouncer when young. They would certainly be soothed by its continuous movement. But, babies quickly outgrow these devices and a baby swing usually is the next choice. All children love swinging. There are quite a few options when it comes to baby swings but it is only proper research which will ensure you choose the right one. The internet is obviously the best place for you to start. Just remember to read various baby swing reviews before you make any decisions.
There are three types of baby swings available today, full bucket swings, half bucket swings and high back swings. All of them are slightly different from each and have their own distinct advantages.
Bucket swings are made for children between the ages of 1 and 3. They are made from durable polymer. The bucket wraps around the child in full bucket swings. In half bucket swings, there is just a back but no front. The half bucket lets the child learn how to swing on his/her own which can be helpful while transitioning to regular swings.
The high back swing comes with a high back seat that can be adjusted. It also has molded bar supports which usually have a piece which can fit in between the legs of the child. It is most suitable for infants.
When buying a swing, always go for the ones where the chains are coated with plastic. This greatly reduces the chance of your child getting pinched. It even makes it easier on your hands to hold the chains. Remember never to leave your children unattended in swings though. And always check your swings and its chains to ensure they are safe to use. (more…)
