Swings

 

The Best Baby Swings

A swing is a nice item to have for your new baby. It is a place for them to be soothed, play, relax, and develop motor skills. Baby will gain their first bit of independence while you get two free hands. Most times swings take up a bit of space, so be sure to keep that in mind when considering one. I wouldn’t name it an essential but it is nice to have especially if you don’t have a bouncer.

We have six of the best swings for you to take a look at:

Based on real reviews, here are some of the said pros and cons

Pros: Comfortable, Soothes Baby, Functions/Features

Cons: Noise While Swinging

Personal Review: My sister bought this swing for my little princess Layla when she was “fat mama” (her nickname as a baby). Layla loved this swing and I did as well. It is very soft and plush and gives you variety of different swinging speeds. She was content a lot of the time and I was definitely able to take advantage of my free hands to get stuff done. It was a nice place for her to sit, play, and nap. What I didn’t like about the Little Snugapuppy is that it is big and bulky. The legs stick out further then I would like and it takes up a good amount of floor space. Overall, I loved this swing. It is made of great quality and I would recommend it
