Baby swings, ever!

A baby swing is a seat de­signed to soothe your baby with gen­tle move­ment and mu­sic, es­sen­tial for those mo­ments when you need both hands free, or if she’s got colic and you need to pop to the loo.

…if you don’t want to spend a for­tune

Swings are ex­pen­sive, and this is a bril­liant buy if your baby is pretty chilled and you don’t need an all-singing, all-danc­ing seat to keep her happy. It has a re­mov­able toy bar and con­verts to a tod­dler chair, too. Fisher-Price In­fant-to-Tod­dler Rocker, £44.99, smyth­stoys.com

…if your baby hates you putting her down

Wheels on the frame makes this easy to move, and the seat lifts off, too, so you can take your baby from room to room with you. It has lul­laby and na­ture sounds, and swings and vi­brates at mul­ti­ple speed set­tings – ex­per­i­ment to find ex­actly what soothes her. Se­rina 2in1, £149.99, uk.joiebaby.com

…if you’re a so­cial but­ter­fly

If you’re for­ever stay­ing over at your mum’s or hang­ing out at a friend’s house for the af­ter­noon, you’ll be able to take this swing with you. It folds com­pactly and has an in­te­grated carry han­dle. Graco Move With Me, £179.99, graco.co.uk

…if you’ve reached sen­sory over­load If you’re over­run with bright, noisy baby stuff, this will pull the bal­ance back. It doesn’t need bat­ter­ies or make noise, and a gen­tle push makes it sway like a leaf in the breeze. Nuna Leaf, £170, shop­nuna.co.uk …if you’ve got a Tod­dler, too

With an older sib­ling de­mand­ing at­ten­tion, it’s not al­ways pos­si­ble to pick your baby up the mo­ment she cries. This swing has a sound sen­sor, so it’ll move gen­tly when she makes a sound. And it ro­tates 360 de­grees. SwoonMo­tionBabySwing,£169.99, baby­moov.co.uk
