Question:
My infant often falls asleep in her swing. Is it OK to let her stay there?


Answer:

It’s easy to see why a swing may lull your baby to sleep: That rhythmic rocking can soothe even the fussiest of sleepers. But if your baby does happen to fall asleep in her swing, it’s best to gently move her into her crib.

It’s a matter of safety. Infants are at their safest when they are placed on their backs to sleep in their cribs. Doing so can help protect them from sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).

A swing may soothe your fussy baby, but when it comes to baby safety, it’s not the best choice for sleep. Find out more about swinging and snoozing.

My 6-week-old son fights sleep. Everyone has told me to put him in the swing for his naps. Is it safe for him to always sleep in his swing?
