My son is colic and I put him in his swing and he actually stopped crying. He fell asleep in there and I'm afraid to take him out only to have him have a crying fit again. Is it safe for me to leave him napping in his swing ???

My dd did. Some say it is not safe. Some people say everything is not safe. My dd had zero issues.

She didn't nap all the time in there. Majority of the time in her crib.

Mine would all nap in their swing from time to time.  As long as you are there in the room to make sure you hear if she cries or anything then I would say you will be fine.

We did on occasion. If you're there and baby is happy why not.

My DD did when she was an infant, but I always made sure she was securely strapped in.  She loved her swing, put her in one first at about 4 days old.  She just turned 5 yesterday and is just fine.

My son slept in a swing for the first month.

Also do you own a wrap? They are awesome for colic and keeping your hands free.

sure .... Why not ? I can't think of any reason it wouldn't be safe, unless he's old enough to sit up and could possibly tip it over?
