Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Childcare

You need a baby swing if your baby tends to get cranky if you are not rocking it back and forth yourself all the time it can’t fall asleep easily yet you just need some hands-free time knowing the baby is safe and happy. All this of course given that your child is a couple months old and isn’t constantly moving around or pushing itself up yet trying to explore the world.

Even though the maximum recommended weight of most swings might be up to 25 pounds or more, we recommend you stop using it between 15 and 20 pounds or as soon as your baby simply gets too active to enjoy the swing.

On My Cutie Baby, they we’ll offer you best baby swing reviews and guides, useful advice on what to look for in a baby swing and which baby swing is the right one for your child because that’s not always so easy given the huge choice of products available.

Batteries or plug-in

A swing doesn’t move if you don’t push it, obviously this is true for baby swings as well. If you don’t mind giving up one arm in order to keep your baby’s swing in motion, keep up the good work and stick to a regular swing.

Since the electric motor does make a little bit of noise, you should let your baby try a friend’s electric swing if possible. The sound can be either soothing or startling depending on your child and after all it has to be silent enough to not disturb you.

In this article we provide some guidelines which will help you know what to look for when it comes to purchasing these kinds of gates for your home.  If you keep what is suggested below in mind then purchasing the one that will keep your child safe will become a lot easier.

1.  Firstly you need to decide whether to purchase the baby safety gates that are permanently or pressure mounted.  The main advantage to going for the gates that are permanently fixed in position is that they are a lot stronger.  This will then help to ensure that at your child gets older and stronger they won’t actually be able to force them out of position.

Plus when it comes to those gates that are in a fixed position they are fitted with mechanisms that should the central part (the gate) need to be removed it can.  So there is no need to undo the whole system.

2.  Next you need to make a decision on what sort of system comes with the gate to allow it to be opened if necessary.  Today there are two kinds of latch system that baby safety gates employ.  One of these is where it is fitted with dual latch so all you need is one hand to operate it. Whilst the other kinds of gates tend to include a pedal at the base of the gate which when pressed allows the gate to open automatically and is ideal when your hands are full.
