MOMMA LOVES… glider or rocking chair – nursery essential!


First week of Max’s life and I’m not sure if the glider was rocking him or my poor sleep deprived husband to sleep!

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.
