Infant Rocker – Things You Must Consider

Infant Rocker - things that need to be considered

There are a lot of baby accessories that parents buy to give comfort to their babies and to themselves as well. Some of these baby accessories are crib, walker, stroller and carrier. Now there is also what you call an infant rocker or an infant swing. As the name implies, an Infant Rocker is a device that you can use to rock your baby.

What are the things that you must look for or consider when buying an infant rocker for your baby? Here are some suggestions.

First, check for the swing's sturdiness. Usually, an infant rocker with a wider base is sturdier. A wider base will lessen the chances for the swing to topple over. Also consider the center of gravity. The lower the center of gravity is, the sturdier the infant rocker  becomes.

Look at the safety straps. Is it made of strong materials? It must be strong enough to give ample protection for your baby. Make sure though that the material is not too hard so it will not be uncomfortable. When looking at the straps you must also find out if it will give your baby protection at different angles. The strap must secure the waist, the shoulders and the crotch area so that the baby will not slide down or fall on the side.

Examine the seat. It must allow for different reclining positions. It must be able to take an upright position, fully reclined position and several levels in between. Check also if it has removable seat covers. It is important that the covers can be easily removed from the infant rocker so you can easily clean it.

Check if the headrest can be adjusted to different levels. It is important that you can adjust it so that as the baby grows taller you can still use the infant rocker.

If you are sure that you are going to bring the swing outdoors a lot, look for one that has a canopy to protect it from too much sunlight.

Lastly, check for added features like speed control and timer. The speed control will let you adjust how fast or how slow the swing will rock your baby while the timer will let you control the amount of time the Infant Rocker will swing for.
