Benefits of Swinging

from 9 months to 1 year 6 months

Let your toddler swing!

The little one can swing on their belly, twist and turn, swing slow or fast, swing high or low.

Swinging is important for kids:


  • Swinging strengthens your child’s core and helps with the development of balance.
  • The rocking motion of swinging stimulates the cerebral cortex, the part of the brain that helps you focus.
  • Swinging offers help with sensory integration, which is how your brain organizes and interprets information. Sensory Integration provides a foundation for later, more complex learning and behavior.
  • Swinging is calming!
  • Swinging encourages social interaction and development.
  • The movement of swinging helps develop perceptual skills.
  • Swinging increases spatial awareness.
  • Swinging helps develop gross motor skills – pumping legs, running, jumping, etc.
  • Swinging helps develop fine motor skills – grip strength, hand, arm, and finger coordination.
  • Twisting and untwisting on the swing has additional benefits! According to research, the act of spinning stimulates different parts of a child’s brain simultaneously, which promotes the development of interconnected pathways in the brain. These connections are important for learning skills such as spatial awareness, rhythm, balance, muscle control, etc.
