Do you use the buckles on the bouncer, swing, ect when you put your baby in it??

We use them most of the time but sometimes if Jacob falls asleep in my arms and I don't want to wake up, I will just put him in the bouncer and not strap him in.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

Not yet. She goes in her swing, bouncer and rock and play sleeper without buckles. Once she starts moving around a bit more then we will start using them.

She hates the buckles on her carseat, so I can only imagine how much she will love the buckles on the other stuff...

*Thank you AlexKatieAidenMommy for my awesome siggie*

Yes, just because I don't want my two year old to remove him. I know baby can't get out himself.

Thank you Jaidynsmum for my beautiful siggy!

We use the straps- I'm a paranoid mommy! It would be my luck that the one time I didn't use them he would learn to roll and fall out!

Thanks to Claire1979 for the terrific siggy!

Not yet, but all we use is the bouncer inside the pnp, she slides down a little bit but we're right there watching her. When we set up the swing we'll use the buckles in that.

We use the straps on the bouncer because she tends to fall over to the side, especially when it's vibrating. We don't yet use the straps in the rock and play or her swing.

I have a swing for Tucker and I always strap him in. Safety first.

I actually just started using the straps on the swing.
The other weekend DH said that I could go to bed while he would watch Logan. I remember telling DH right b4 leaving the room "DO NOT fall asleep with the baby in the swing." At about 5am I hear a THUNK!! followed by Logan screaming and DH screaming! Apparently logan had fallen to the floor and hit his head on the metal bar/leg of the swing. DH felt Terrible! I was pissed! and now we use the straps!

I always strap Grant in. He can roll both ways now and I can just see him getting bored on his back and decide to roll onto his belly and fall right out of the bouncer or other item.

I sometimes do on his vibrating chair. But he hates being strapped in. So we dont use any much.

Thanks PrincessMom08 for my wonderful siggy!
