Now that you are aware of the age and weight that you shouldn’t go over when placing your baby in the swing, there are steps to follow to further answer your question about when should you stop using a baby swing. At 3 months, it’s better to place the infant in a swing to take a nap. From birth to three months, if your baby were to fall asleep for a nap, your baby would be at a risk for SIDS. Babies that are around 11 months or older are not suitable for baby swings. It also depends on your baby’s body. If you can tell that your baby is bigger than the swing can hold, it’s time to either sell it or give it to someone who needs it. When going shopping, it’s best to purchase a swing that your baby can grow into. Another factor that plays into the question, of how long babies use swings, is recalls. You’ll find out about recalls through the news or through other moms and dads that have heard about recalls. If the swing that you purchased is under a recall, then you need to stop using it immediately.
