How to choose a baby swing

We're all looking for the ideal swing, the one that combines all the best features: safety, practicality, functionality, comfort... Baby swings have now become a must-have item to replace and/or complement bouncers. This highly fashionable piece of childcare equipment appeals as much to children for its comfort and playfulness as it does to parents, who can take a breather for a few minutes. Bébé2Luxe explains how to choose the right swing for your newborn.

What criteria should I take into account when choosing a baby swing?

These days, baby swings come in a wide range of models, with different features (music, lighting, swing modes, etc.), quality and design. Here are a few criteria to consider when choosing your baby swing.


If there's one thing you shouldn't skimp on, it's safety. Your child's health and well-being must be your priority. Before you buy the first swing you come across, make sure it's stable and has an effective attachment system. Does it meet European and French standards? Is it CE marked? Does it have straps? A safety harness? Is it made using a substance that is dangerous and/or controversial for baby's health? All these factors should be taken into consideration before buying your head-down swing.


Comfort is also an important factor to consider. The swing must be equipped with a seat that is comfortable for baby. The firmness of the foam, the softness of the covering and the presence of headrests all contribute to a good level of ergonomics.The comfort of parents should also be taken into consideration. Why not opt for an electric swing? It will be able to put your baby to sleep with ease, leaving you free to rest or attend to other tasks nearby.



Baby swings come in different shapes (size/dimensions/weight...). So if you're going to be using your swing a lot and taking it with you every weekend, it's advisable to opt for a lightweight, space-saving model to avoid backache, among other things, and make it easier to move around.

Power supply

If you decide to buy an electric swing, you'll need to factor in additional costs, particularly for batteries. Swings that can be plugged into a mains socket are preferable.


So you don't have to spend all your free time cleaning it, try to choose a swing that's easy to clean, with a removable cover that can be quickly machine-washed, for example.

Features and accessories

You can invest in a classic or ultra-functional swing. In fact, many additional options can make everyday life easier and more enjoyable for parents and children alike. These include programmable functions, music, light effects, a nightlight, rattles and other early-learning games.

In addition, each electric swing has its own degree of swing. They offer different speeds and can even be controlled remotely, from the next room for example. We recommend that you choose a swing with a gentle side-to-side movement.
