nice but only occasionally
We did this too for a few weeks around a month old. It was so nice to have him sleep but our Chiropractor noticed it made his neck very tight. The swing forces the head forward and teaches the neck to develop the wrong curve in the spine.
I agree Sarah, it can also be a safety issue, falling out or getting caught up in the straps.
I think that as along as the baby is safe and you're right there, that some nights, you jus gotta do what you gotta do..
I agree, Jessica. It shouldn't be a long term or regular thing, but some nights it's the only thing that works!
The only time I let Charlie sleep in the swing is if I'm in the same room. I've heard some moms say that the angle helps with reflux but personally I'm not comfortable with it.
