|My father likes to play quite roughly with my one year old,
and their favorite game is when grandpa swings baby through
the air by his arms. I just worry about all the force on those
little joints. Am I being an over protective mother?
This game actually does have the risk of dislocated shoulders.
The same applies to the game where the child walks between
two adults and they swing the child along. Dislocated shoulders
are painful but easy to fix.
