Trying to decide if you need a nursery chair? Or, what the best nursery chairs are? This is your guide to finding the perfect chair for the baby's room.
Nursery chair shopping is one of the biggest struggles when it comes to designing a nursery. So today, we'll help you find the perfect nursery chair that's both functional and stylish.
We get asked often if a nursery chair is an essential item for a nursery? Absolutely! Moms will tell you that a nursery chair is where they spent the better part of baby's first few months in. It's where you'll try to get the baby to latch on properly, feed the baby countless times a day and where you'll calm and soothe a tired baby.
Therefore, investing in a nursery chair is really a no brainer. When you are tired and sore, especially during late night feeding sessions, there’s nothing quite like a comfortable nursery chair to help create a cozy environment in the nursery.
In this guide, we'll look at the different types of nursery chairs, what to look for when choosing a nursery chair and we've also rounded up 10 best nursery chairs that's got both form and function.
GLIDER VS ROCKER
Though you could use any armchair in the nursery, nursery chairs are made specifically for a baby's room. You could go with a rocking chair which has arched legs and a stronger back and forth motion. Or, you could opt for a glider which has a stationary base and a more gentle sway.
HOW TO CHOOSE A NURSERY CHAIR
With so many different nursery gliders and rocking chairs, choosing a nursery chair can be difficult, especially if you are buying online. Here are some important things to consider when picking a nursery chair for the baby's room.
Would you personally prefer the movement of a rocking chair or a glider? This is important when you want to soothe a fussy baby!
Consider the width of the armrest and if they are padded or not. Keep in mind, you'll want comfortable armrests to rest those tired arms as you hold the baby. Armrests also come into play when you are trying to position the baby for breastfeeding.
3. LUMBAR SUPPORT
Sitting for long periods while breastfeeding can cause problems with posture. Look for a nursery chair that provides support.
As the baby gets older, a locking mechanism ensures safety by preventing baby's fingers from getting pinched.
