What age do you stop using an infant swing?

I'm asking b/c DS will be 5 mos on the 10th... but I am having a garage sale tomorrow. Wasn't sure if it's worth keeping it or if I should sell it while I have the chance. TIA for the FB.

Re: What age do you stop using an infant swing?

I honestly dont remember when. I think it was somewhere when she started becoming more mobile and liked floor time. The swing was a lifesaver when she was crabby, but then she got happier. I'd say if he's getting close to the weight limit or if he's just as happy other places, it's time to get rid of it. We honestly got to the point she liked her jumper alot better and would swing herself in that. I do remember that much.

We stopped around 7 months, because that was when DS learned to stick his arm out, really concentrate, and then grab the leg of the swing as he swung near it.

Mine all did the same thing so we stopped using them around the same age. A friend of mine kept her 12month old in hers because that was the only way the baby would sleep, she was a fat baby the swing hardly moved.lol

If you use it, keep it. If you don't sell it.

We stopped at 7mos with DD, she was also reaching out and grabbing the bar on the swing!

DS hated his swing so we never used it with him at all.

Yup, that's why we stopped using it. DD would stop the swing by hanging on to the leg rail, then let go and be swinging on again.

I thought she was gonna' rip her little arm out of the socket the first few times I saw it. Can't handle that, sooooo we put the swing away for baby #2.

INFANT hahaha...TRY TODDLER! My son was addicted to the swing..(more of the sensory integration swinging sooths him) so he was in a swing even slept in the swing most of the time from brith to 21 months!! he was able to turn it on climb in strap himself in put the tray down and have a swing! haha...but this also led to trips to the park where he fell asleep on the swings there hahaha...I say if your child isn't too fond of it and doesn't get very much enjoyment its a huge item if you don't need it let it be sold..but if he is soothed by it and it does allow you to get thigns done with him in it I say keep it around...

Re: What age do you stop using an infant swing?

My boy is turning 6 months tomorrow.
Yesterday, as I was on the computer and he was relaxing in his swing ... I had a look at him and he was ...
Suspended by the straps, his head on the floor . He had leaned toward the front far enough to fall ! I picked him up and he was smiling like crazy ! The first thing he tried to do was to repeat the experience again ! lol . I think we`re done with the swing.
