Swing Safety Tips for Infants
The mamaRoo 4 perfectly fits the American Academy of Pediatrics list of recommendations for swing safety, making it our top pick for out of this world parenting solutions.
Swing Safety Tip 1: Proper Recline
Infants under the age of 4 months should be seated in a reclined position to ensure proper positioning of their airways. Without the ability to properly hold their head and neck on their own, infants left unsupervised may restrict their own airways. A reclined position ensures that your baby is safely able to breath as they sway. The mamaRoo 4 provides an adjustable recline, allowing you to properly position your baby as they grow.
The Little Lunar Newborn Insert helps ensure that even the smallest babies are properly supported and comfortable!
Swing Safety Tip 2: Secure Base
The AAP recommends only products that can not tip over or fold up easily. With a solid base and secure safety straps, your little one will be safe and sound in the mamaRoo 4 for countless hours of play.
Swing Safety Tip 3: Toy Safety
Toys should be securely fastened and out of reach from babies. The mamaRoo 4 features a toy mobile that inspires baby to reach for the stars. Securely attached to the base the mobile will draw the baby’s eye, while ensuring swing safety by not touching or being able to be pulled down to or upon the infant.
Swing Safety Tip 4: Not for sleeping
The updated AAP sleep safety recommendations specifically advise parents to avoid allowing babies to sleep in a swing. If baby falls asleep while in their mamaRoo 4 they should be moved to a firm sleep surface as soon as possible. Avoiding sleeping in the mamaRoo 4 helps promote good sleep behavior and encourages babies to sleep on stable surfaces, not while in motion.
No matter how much you read about baby safety, the most important thing you can do is make the safest choices for your family. We recommend staying in tune with the AAP for their recommendations throughout the newborn years and beyond.
