How long can a baby stay in a swing chair

Most experts recommend limiting your baby’s time in an automatic swing to 60 minutes or less a day.

Sitting in a swing can avert your baby to develop the motor skills that will eventually lead to crawling, pulling up to stand, and cruising. It’s also important to hold and communicate with your baby as she matures physically and emotionally.

So it’s okay to use the swing to soothe your little one, but the best way is old-fashioned and the most natural holding or swaddling.

My baby loves sleeping in swing chair. Is it ok?

It is fine if  the rhythmic rocking motion helps your baby to fall asleep for a nap, but swings are not intended for sleep and is not meant to replace the child’s bed.

It’s understandable: Your baby falls asleep in the swinging chair, and the last thing you want to do is risk waking him or her up with a move. But in its new recommendations to combat SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome), the American Academy of Pediatrics warns – sleeping too long in a sitting position may make it hard for a baby to breathe and get enough oxygen.

Finally, carefully read the instruction manual for your baby’s swing before doing anything, and follow the manufacturer recommends.

How to the baby swing correctly?

Not only the safety of the chosen model plays an important role, but also how you use the baby swing. First of all, it is vital to set up the swing on a firm surface so that it has the necessary support to intercept wilder movements of your baby safely. For this reason, the baby swing should only be set up on the floor and not on a table, stool, or chair, especially if you do some tasks in time and take your child out of your sight for a few minutes. Because if your offspring has a lot of fun, it may also start romping in the swing, which may cause it to shift a little. Nevertheless, the swing is not meant to park a child and leave it to itself simply. Sure, for some activities, you need both hands and a little more attention. As soon as possible, take your child out of the swing and continue to deal with it. The most beautiful play is still that with mom or dad.

Can children suffer damage to their posture from the baby swing? 

High-quality baby swings are ergonomically designed so that your child’s spine is not adversely affected. As a result, postural damage is generally not to be expected. But especially with babies, it is important to ensure that they spend a maximum of 30 minutes a day in the swing. The older your child gets, the more you can increase the time. If you are unsure, you can always contact the pediatrician with this question. 

Why do children calm down while rocking?

Rocking movements are thought to remind toddlers of the pre-birth period when they felt safe in the womb. In pregnancy, children balance the movements of the mother and get used to the rocking movements. It is believed that this is the reason why they react so positively to the movement after birth and gently rocking that some tears dry faster or let your child fall asleep faster. The feeling of security and security has a positive effect on the wellbeing of the baby.
