Nursery rockers and gliders provide a convenient, comfortable place for you to hold your baby to feed or soothe them. Their gentle motion can help calm your baby or put them to sleep.
Rockers, or rocking chairs, have a traditional back-and-forth rocking motion, while gliders glide back and forth. You'll also find glider rockers, which both rock and glide. Many gliders and glider rockers come with an ottoman, which may also glide. You can also purchase an ottoman separately.
When shopping for a nursery rocking chair or glider, consider the material of the frame and the upholstery. Most nursery chairs have wood frames. The type of wood will affect the weight and durability of the chair as well as its appearance.
Since babies often spit up and may have diaper leaks, it's important to buy a chair with upholstery made from a material that's durable and easy to clean, such as damask, microsuede or canvas. Polyester is another good choice, since it's stain resistant. The material should also be soft and comfortable.
