Close-Swing / Baby sling or Swing


Parents’ accompanying is the best gift for children. When a family of three went out for a walk, parents' hands often become the child's swing. Close-Swing can achieve the function of swing through parents' cooperative carrying for parent-child interaction, so as to increase mutual trust between children and parents and let children feel the love from both parents. Through simple transformation, it can also achieve the function of cuddling in front or carrying on the back, freeing more and more parents from cuddling a baby with both hands and making it much easier to go out with a baby.
