Carpenter & Kin "The Daydreamer" Baby swing review
Do you have childhood memories of playing at the park on the swings? Do you remember the feeling of the wind blowing past your ears, or twisting the metal chains up as high as they can go then letting them go to twirl around as fast as you could?
Sadly with OH&S and school liability many playgrounds are now scrapping swing sets, but what does this mean for our children's development?
It means more children are not getting the sensory play that they NEED! From 6 months or when baby can sit independently is the time to start swinging! Start with a gentle, rhythmical swing while sitting eye to eye with your babe. They will be looking at you for reassurance so give them a smile, sing them a song, tickle their toes, whatever you like to let them know they are safe.
Siblings can often feel neglected when a new baby comes into the house, constant feeding and settling means parents are often held up caring for the baby. Creating a special task for older siblings to help with can not only help them feel included but also build that special bond between them which will be lifelong. Here is Tara, aged 7 singing "You are my sunshine" to baby Brody before his nap time, you can see how tired he is but still manages a little smile to show he is enjoying her time with him. This also gives mum a quick minute to fold the washing while watching on.
