Eco-conscious and Montessori-curious parents look to baby swings made of wood for a natural alternative to plastic — to swing your baby to sleep just as Mother Nature intended.
Baby Safe Swing Shopper’s Checklist
Recommended for any baby — a minimum 50-pound weight limit. Especially for ceiling-hanging models, it’s important to install securely with care and test with 3 to 5 times the weight of your baby before use.
Pick a safe space for baby swing playtime and naptime without sharp things or ouchy obstacles (avoid head injuries).
Most baby swings are intended for indoor use — if you plan to hang it outdoors, first make sure the model you pick is explicitly listed as an outdoor swing (able to weather extreme temperatures and humidities). For babies, swing ropes fair better than chains (soft to touch).
Pick the right seat style for your infant-to-baby-to-toddler development stage (big-enough, leg-openings, back-height, etc) — do you want a seat swing, bucket swing, or hammock swing? If the particular model comes with a belt — “For Pete’s Sake” please adjust it according to the directions.
After that, it’s all lullabies and giggles — and plenty of Zzzzz’s for baby!
Best Indoor & Outdoor Wooden Baby Swing
The wooden baby swing (vs plastic and other synthetics) is a popular choice indeed! Some made to hang from the ceiling (installation required), some include standalone frames (simple assemply required). Take your pick and it’s counting sheep to Cloud Nine.
