The best baby swings

When baby is very young, i.e. less than 3 months old, the baby swing is the most suitable. But when he grows up, the swing seat takes over. Of course, it is not indispensable, but when the child is settled inside, his smile melts his parents’ hearts. But what are the main selection criteria when buying an indoor baby swing?

Criteria to consider

The first criterion to consider is safety. The infant seat chosen must have a protective belt or harness attached to the seat and a safety bar at the front. These two accessories are designed to prevent the child from falling when bending over or wiggling while playing. The rounded edges limit the risk of injury if the child rubs against them.

Comfort is the second criterion. Even if the seat of a baby swing is not padded, the softness of the material absorbs the impact. In addition, the seat must be wide enough to allow baby to move around in it comfortably. Compliance with the maximum weight indicated by the manufacturer is important so as not to weaken the outdoor swing.

The materials the swing is made of are also an important criterion. Outdoor playground equipment manufactured in the European Union often complies with the standards and regulations in force, both in terms of quality and safety. The presence of the CE or NF label is very reassuring. Good quality blown plastic, beech wood, nylon swing rope, etc. guarantee the longevity and resistance of this playground for toddlers.

The price is also important when buying, but you should not focus on it, especially when the quality is not there. The goal is to acquire a first-rate, inexpensive playground without spending a fortune.

The different types of baby swing

Several models of baby swings are currently available on the market. First of all, there is the swing frame, a self-supporting model with a single seat. It can accommodate the child from the age of 6 months if the seat is baby-proof, i.e. made of a rigid shell, equipped with a belt and safety bar.

The second model is a wooden baby gate. It has a swing with at least one slide. A small hut can be attached to this outdoor playground. It stands out from the others because of its authentic design. In addition, it is a space that can accommodate several children at the same time.

The third model is a children’s portico with several play activities: baby swing seat, slide with hut, sandbox, opposite, small swimming pool, rope ladder, climbing wall, etc. It is suitable not only for small children but also for older children. To make your toddler happy, don’t hesitate to add other play stations such as a baby trampoline for example.

Some advice on choosing and installing a baby swing

A baby swing must be strong and well attached with strong ropes. Choose a seat with a high backrest and a belt or harness. There is no problem even if it is part of a swing.

Don’t hesitate to invest in an evolutionary model even if it costs more. Indeed, baby will be able to use it over several years when the seat transforms into a classic swing. Don’t forget to test the baby’s playground by roughing it up a few times before using it. Make sure that all the support accessories: screws, carabiners, etc. are in place and, above all, tightened.

Most models on the market can be installed inside the house and suspended from the ceiling. But they can also be installed outside in the garden, especially when they are sold with wooden gantries. A plastic baby swing will not be affected by rainwater, strong wind or sunlight. It will be able to stay outside all year round without its resistance and solidity being put to the test.

As an accident can happen so quickly, baby should never be left alone in his swing seat. He will have to be constantly supervised by placing this play accessory in a place where he can be seen.
