Baby swings can be a new mother's best friend. They are a great way to keep an infant happy and entertained, allowing the mother some free time for whatever she needs to do. Today, there are a variety of swings available, some with more features than others.
Baby swings are generally sold in two basic varieties; battery operated and wind-up. Wind-up swings are the traditional style and have been used by parents for decades. Battery operated swings do not need to be “wound up” but they do require battery changes periodically.
Baby swings that come with a range of swinging speeds are generally considered the best option. Because different babies are soothed by different rocking speeds, having multiple speeds can be an advantage. Many of the top-of-the-line swings even come with music players.
