Baby swings and infant rockers are great for almost any baby. The motion of an infant swing or rocker is very comforting to baby. As your baby gets older many find the swing great fun. Some swings such as the Baby Einstein swing and Graco baby swing have attached toys for added fun.
Most baby swings are battery powered and feature automatic or timed shutoff. Three or five point safety harness is standard. Removable trays and toys are a nice bonus. The typical weight limit for baby swings and rockers is 25-30 pounds, check the manufacturer's guidelines.
Some baby swings are smaller and more portable. If space is short or you plan on bringing it between houses look for a travel baby swing or compact baby swing.
Infant rockers are preferred by some babies and parents. A rocker will sit low on the ground and provides a simple, gentle rocking motion. Many rockers will have a vibrating feature that many babies find soothing. Both the rocking motion and vibration may be timed or controlled by on/off button. Like the baby swing, some infant rockers will have accessory toy bars and weight limits are typically 25-30 pounds. Check manufacturers label for the specific weight limit of a baby rocker or baby swing.
