When Is It Time To Retire the Baby Swing?

How Did You Know It Was Time to Retire Your Baby Swing?

The swing has swung! While women swear by the baby swing because it gives a new mama a bit of freedom — she can hop in the shower or just rest her hands for a few moments — no piece of baby gear can be all together trusted (even under a parent's close watch) for too long. Well before he reached the weight capacity, my older son reached out of his swing and extended a long arm toward the floor. The gesture almost sent him out of his seat. Fast forward a few years and my lil guy made like Houdini the other day and freed himself from the harness. Then, he attempted to slither free from the moving chair. How did you know it was time to put the old swing away?

I just sent mine off to my sister because it only has a seat harness, not 5 point, and he leans forward and nearly falls out. He doesnt even like it anyway, it just worked a few times in a pinch so I could get dishes done.
