It’s no secret, Gwendolyn LOVES to swing on the swings. We can’t even think about walking past the park near our house these days without taking her on the swings. And at her preschool, she’s on the swings every single day. She loves it. And we love it.
Most of the time we hold Gwendolyn in our lap on bipap and we swing with her. While we love every second of that — and she does as well — we know that she’d love to swing without mom and dad sometimes We’ve tried a few different adapted swings and some work better than others — this one that you can get from SMASupply.com is pretty good. At Gwendolyn’s summer preschool program they have an adapted swing called the AeroSling Swing that is just awesome. It’s like a small hammock chair that attaches to the normal swing chains. We then put her Tumble Form feeder seat inside the swing. And she can sit securely inside the AeroSling Swing in her Tumble Form feeder seat on bipap — we use this Go-Anywhere Head Support to hold her head securely in place. And she can swing independently with all of the other kids in her class.
She ABSOLUTELY loves it. And our little daredevil loves to go as high as we’ll push her
