When you’re not using it, storing your baby swing can be a little confusing. You might not know where to put it or how to keep it from taking up too much space. Here are some tips on how to store your baby swing properly.

First, remove the mobile and keep it in a safe place. If you buy a new mobile for storage purposes, don’t forget to take that into account when you calculate your total baby swing cost . This way, when you get around to using the swing again (it does get old for parents after 5-6 months), you’ll have a mobile ready to go!

If you don’t remove the mobile and store it separately, keep in mind that it will be hard to find. It might even get lost and never used again if you leave it attached while storing your swing. You can hang the mobile on a wall or put it in a separate drawer.

Next, in order to store your swing in a small space and not damage it (or anything around it), bring the seat down to an almost-flat position. To lock it in this position, turn the knob on the side so it locks into place. If you want to keep baby’s toys attached during storage, you can roll them up and store them in the pockets of the seat.

Lastly, if you have a swing that plugs in with an AC adapter, remember where you’ve plugged it in so you can easily find it when you want to use it again. To keep your baby swing safe during storage, unplug it after all these steps are complete.

how to pack away a baby swing

When you’re getting ready to move, not only will box packing be necessary, but swing packing might also be. To pack your baby swing away safely for the big move, keep the following tips in mind:

If you have a non-plug baby swing with batteries inside, remove them before boxing up the swing. Keeping the swing plugged in while moving can cause battery acid to leak inside your baby swing, which can damage it.

Do not break apart the frame if you are packing it into a smaller box. It will effectively ruin the swing and make it difficult for you to set up when you get to your new home. If you have a cloth mobile that was not removed, remember to pack it with the frame.

If you have a swing-operated mobile, store it in a safe place so that you can find it easily when you get to your new home. Remember to take the batteries out of the baby swing if this is an option on your model, too.

How to hang a baby swing

When you’re taking your swing down, keep these tips in mind:

Make sure to remove the mobile. Letting the mobile stay attached while you take down the swing can make it hard to find once you set up at your new house. Keep it where you’ll be able to see and use it upon setting up.

Hang the swing where you’ll want it to go again when you get settled into your new home. As long as there are no overhead beams or pipes, finding a spot for your baby swing should not be difficult. Think about what kind of wall space is available that won’t cause any problems during playtime with baby.

If you will be hanging the baby swing somewhere other than on a wall, use the hooks that come with the baby swing to hang it securely and safely.

Don’t forget to reattach any toys or mobiles if they were removed for storage purposes! Your baby might enjoy new toys again when they get older and ready for playtime.

What are the best places to store a swing?

There are several different places where you can store your baby swing, including:

A wardrobe or clothes dresser drawer A kitchen pantry An empty corner of a room An empty closet shelf A toy chest in your child’s bedroom

Different swings come with different types of storage options. If you have a battery-powered swing, for example, the mobile might be able to detach so it can be stored separately. However, there are also swings that come with AC adapters that must stay plugged in during storage, so this is something to check before putting the swing away.

To store a Graco baby swing, first disconnect the AC power adapter from your outlet and then detach any other M components. Next, bring down the seat to a flat position and lock it into place by turning the knob on the side. You can then roll up or store your baby’s toys in the pockets of the seat if you don’t have a baby swing with detachable toys.

If you have a Graco baby swing that does not have detachable toys, remember to keep the mobile in a safe and accessible place so you can find it easily upon setting up at your new home. If you use batteries for your baby swing and plan to store it long-term away from home, remember to remove them before putting it away.

How do I store a Fisher-Price baby swing?

Remove the mobile toy and store it in an accessible place. If the toys are too bulky for storage inside of your baby swing, you can also use netting that comes with Fisher-Price swings to keep the toys together.

Lift up on the seat to remove it from your Fisher-Price baby swing’s frame, and then turn the power switch off. The AC adapter should be removed as well.
