Rocking a baby to sleep is even more enjoyable when you've got a great nursery chair. Hayneedle carries a wide selection of nursery rocker chairs and nursery gliders that are perfect for the job. With (shhhh!) whisper-quiet operation, you'll be singing a lullaby in no time in your new nursery chair.
Gliders vs. Rocking Chairs
You'll find two common styles for nursery chairs, and the best one for you depends on your personal needs. Rockers tilt forward and back in an arc motion, while gliders slide forward and back and may also swivel.
Gliders tend to have more cushioning, have a smoother ride, and are a safer choice for avoiding toes trapped underneath when you're taking care of baby in the middle of the night. A locking mechanism on gliders also makes it easier to get in and out of the seat without losing your balance.
Our Favorite Features
If you haven't shopped for a nursery glider before, you may be surprised at the design choices. You'll find chairs in styles to match any nursery décor. No matter what style you select, you'll want a chair with a sturdy frame and wide armrests to support you while holding your baby. Wood nursery rockers can be made in a variety of natural or painted finishes.
For upholstered nursery glider chairs and recliners, select a coordinating fabric color or pattern to create the perfect addition to your baby's room. Look for removable cushion covers in durable fabric for easy cleaning, supportive cushioning, and a wide seat that can accommodate your need to move while caring for baby. Also consider a matching ottoman to let you put your feet up and relax as much as you can during sleepless nights.
Offering comfort, style, and affordability, our nursery rockers will quickly become your favorite chair, and when you select the right features, your new chair can easily work double duty in a guest room or living room long after you need a nursery. From polka dots to piping and swivel chairs to recliners, you'll find the ideal nursery chair to match your room no matter your budget.
