A friend of mine came over the other day with her 3 month old and, as babies do, she started to fuss. My friend removed herself from dinner and went into Max’s nursery and came out 5 minutes later (without baby – who was snoozing happily in Max’s crib) proclaiming “I need to get one of those rockers!” Absolutely she does – without a doubt having a great glider or rocking chair is a MUST. We spend so much time breast feeding, reading to our little ones, snuggling and rocking that is absolutely a nursery essential for both you and baby! I confess I still rock max to sleep and its one of my favorite pieces of furniture in the house. While pregnant (and going through my nesting phase) I searched high and low for a glider or rocking chair that wouldn’t just serve purpose but in the long run was a beautiful piece of furniture. My Monte glider will be with us for the long haul – Max will now climb onto it himself when he’s tired and just snuggle up happily. The glider or rocking chair has come a long way in recent years – they’re not the old fashioned style from days of yore – they’re chic, modern and incredibly comfortable! Check out some of my top picks for a glider or rocking chair that will transform your child’s nursery and your life helping you soothe them to sleep in stylish comfort.
