At what age should I put me son in the baby swings? I have one that cranks up and he loves it, but I am scared that I put him in it to early. Any advice?

I think that as long as his head and back are supported properly, any age is okay to put him in the swing. I know people who put their babies in swings within the first couple of weeks, others wait a while longer. If your baby is comfortable, I wouldn't worry about age.

I put Pierce in his swing when he was like 2 weeks old. He calmed down and slept. As long as you buckle him in!!!

As long as the babys head is supported and he is secured in the seat, and the swing doesn't jerk him around it's fine. I started using mine right away because it helps them sleep. I have seen swings that have two attachments: a regular seat and a bed attachment. Go with your instincts, thats the best answer.
Good luck!

I also used mine from an early age -- they both loved it! Alot of the newer swings actually recline way back so that they are basically lying down.

I never had one that fancy, so I used to prop their head and necks up with rolled up blankets/burp cloths or with Cody, I bought one of those tiny boppy-looking pillows that fit around his neck to hold it up.

Those swings are a Godsend, aren't they?
