We have a two month old. We are big believers of using the 5 S's to sooth her ( swaddling, side, shush, swing , suck ) We usually swing/rock her in our arms. Recently we started to use the swinger seat because she's getting heavier and it's getting harder to hold her for long periods of tme while rocking her.
My big question is if we rock her to soothe her or to get her to sleep, will she be dependent on the rocking/swinging motion so much that she'll still need this when she gets older?
Eventually she will not fit in the rocker and will also be too heavy for us to rock her in our arms.
