Does anyone else's LO like to be in their swing all the time?

My son will cry and nothing else works to soothe him lately except the swing. I feel bad putting him in it for a good part of the day, but the crying constantly is pretty hard to take.

  • Do whatever works for you. Obviously it sooths him & he likes it so go with it. MY son LOVED his swing too. They are the greatest thing ever made for a baby!

  • Mine liked her bouncer... facing the world, or the tv. :-) If they are happy, no need to worry.

    mommylisar- you can never spoil a baby by soothing them in your arms... ever.
