Rocking Chair For Baby Room

Slipcovered and Upholstered ChairsThe nursery is prepared and ready for your baby but have you considered your needs in the room? You’ll be spending a lot of time in the nursery and need somewhere comfortable to sit and rest while nursing and rocking your baby gently to sleep. At Pottery Barn Kids, we know just what you need and has a vast range of cozy slipcovered and upholstered chairs that combine comfort and style for a truly relaxing experience.A rocker is synonymous with a nursery, and the hardwood runners instantly give a feeling of warmth to the room. Choose from different wood stains, such as espresso or driftwood, to match wooden furniture or accents in the nursery. The quiet and smooth motion of the runners ensures that you rock your baby to sleep gently without fear of sudden jerking movements that wake sleepy eyes up. Knobs are conveniently fitted on the back and front of the runners so that the chair remains stable when you stand up or keep rocking. When you no longer have use for a rocking chair, a convertible design lets you replace the runners with stationary feet and convert your rocker into a comfortable armchair. In keeping with the traditional style, a wingback design is inviting. The padding on the back and arms is extra thick so as to provide extra comfort when sitting for long periods of time. A tufted back with slighter wingback design makes for a more modern look, and more elbow room and shoulder space is given with the smaller armrests. A nursery with contemporary styling needs a modern rocker, so go for an urban design made from recycled materials with craftsman-style runners and straight armrests.A swivel rocker is a twist on the original design. Instead of runners, a round swivel base is concealed underneath the chair, allowing you to swivel in 360 degrees. The soft, durable slipcover is easy to clean as it is simply removed and popped into the washing machine. Update the look of your swivel rocker with a new slipcover in a different color to match the nursery bedding or curtains. Where space is limited, a compact version of the swivel rocker is available that offers the same comfort and style without so much of the size.The gentle movement of an upholstered glider lets your baby feel calm during a bonding or feeding session. For a timeless design, go with rounded arms and a winged back. Long-lasting endurance is ensured thanks to the tongue and groove joinery. When you no longer need the glider in the nursery, change the slipcover to a new one and move the glider into your living room as an extra armchair.As if these chairs aren’t comfortable enough, combine them with a reclining feature so that you can stretch out and doze off in comfort. So that you don’t have to move and disturb your baby, the reclining mechanism is within easy reach. Choose between a manual and power option but be rest assured that both have silent operation.All these chairs are rigorously tested to ensure they are safe for continuous use by you and your baby. The rocking mechanisms are deliberately designed to make sure the motion is silent and soothing, first sending your baby to sleep and then you if it’s been a long night.For a spacious room, a settee is another great way to stretch out. Place it next to your baby’s crib so you can drift off to sleep together and wake up close to each other. Add decorative pillows and a throw for even more comfort as you sink into the deep cushioning of the settee. Go a step further with a twin sleeper that opens out from a settee into a bed with armrests and a supportive headrest.Put your feet up on an ottoman. Whether it’s a one-off piece with a tufted design to add a touch of luxury to the nursery or a matching ottoman to your chosen chair, you may want to linger in the relaxation. A gliding ottoman provides the same gentle rocking motion as the chair, which is ideal when using it as an additional seat. And when your feet are fine but your arms are weighed down, there’s nothing wrong with using it as an accent table in your child’s nursery.

Gliders, rocking chairs, and rugs just missed our nursery essentials threshold. 49% of expecting parents purchased a glider and a rocking chair, while 45% chose to own a rug. If you're on the fence about including these items in your nursery, think about your budget. Are you under budget? If so, you can use the extra money on them. If you are over, maybe you hold off a little bit longer. It could also depend on the dimensions of your nursery. If the room is small, you can keep the room looking less cluttered by not including a rocking chair or glider. In that case, you can rock your baby to sleep in the living room or kitchen.

No true surprise here. Bedding is very much a personal item and most choose to buy new than get used. Décor and rugs are very much a taste and preference decision. It could be hard to fit hand-me-down décor into the specific style nursery you are trying to build. It appears new parents try to find a handed down bassinet, which makes sense given the short length of time a baby uses it. Also, it was interesting that some new parents are willing to try and track down a hand-me-down rocking chair.
