Relatives are certain that baby being in swinging position for too long can cause them to be disorrintated ect sad

Perhaps indirectly if you stick baby in swing and never interact with it?

ItsAllGoingToBeFine Not in that way, it was more of a - having a baby sleeping in rocking electric swing for an hour or two - is that bad in anyway for baby kinda question

If you are letting baby sleep in the swing you need to closely supervise I think

No. If they are asleep, how can they be disorientated? Would they also be disorientated when being pushed in a pram while asleep?

Sounds like baseless worrying to me.

That said I think I would turn off the swinging motion once they are asleep if you can, would save electricity!

Also have been told that it jiggles about their brain membranes and is bad for their brain confused

No. My DD practically lived in her swing chair. Only way I could eat dinner / she would fall asleep grin

How old is baby? May be bad for spine to spend too long in there.

Who is telling you this stuff and what's their source? "Brain membranes" that "jiggle" aren't even a thing!
