Benefits of swinging
The most obvious benefit is that swinging is fun and exciting. The feeling of being weightless for a split second at each end of the pendulum, feeling the wind as you accelerate down, hitting the bottom of the pendulum in full speed with the extra g-force on your body is exciting. To laugh and be happy is most beneficial to both our physical and mental health.
Most babies children would benefit from having plenty of opportunities to swing. If you don't have your own swing go to the playground often. Swinging is a suitable exercise from the time the neck is strong enough (approximately 6 months). Swing your baby gently in the beginning to get them used to swinging and not frighten them. If you start your baby young be gentle in your swinging for quite some time. Swinging can also be very soothing and relaxing for your baby.
There are some hidden benefits that the children won't know about but we as parents can appreciate;
(focusing): The development of changing the depth of focus has already started at 6 months and is basically completed during the baby's second year. Swinging is one of the most excellent ways of helping to develop this ability and exercise it as the baby is moving back and forth constantly changing the depth of focus. (This is a period when watching TV should be at the absolute minimum, preferably not at all.) So don't wait to long before you start your baby swinging.
Eyes and ears are major organs when it comes to balance. When swinging it is not only the eyes that are trained and exercised but also the fluid in the inner ear is constantly swirling back and forth, which is great for the development of balance. When swinging your baby is not only leaning front wards and back wards she/he is also moving back and forth and up and down.
To get oneself swinging only by moving ones body is harder than it looks. At the age of about 4 years old a child can swing by themselves and swinging is super for learning and training full body coordination.
