If you are a mother-to-be, you may not be aware of the differences between a Nursery Glider and rocking chair. In fact, you may think they are same thing so it doesn’t really matter when you go to make your purchase. Although they can sometimes look very similar, they are actually very different.
A glider has moving parts that allow the chair to glide—hence its name—silently and safely back and forth to rock baby to sleep. Rocking chairs are considered timeless, but have been known to allow injury to occur and often make noise as they rock.
When you are ready to pick out your Nursery Glider, you want to first determine the color of chair you are interested in. You may want to match your room. You at least want to complement it. Some gliders are very cushioned. Others show the wood color and finish. Determine which type of nursery glider you would like. Some of them look very much like a padded arm chair. They come in a wide array of colors. So color should be one the first things you consider. Maybe you have decided to go with brown and pink in your new baby girl’s room. There will be many brown and pink nursery gliders from which to choose.
If you had your heart set on a blue nursery, you will certainly be able to find a wide selection of gliders in many shades of blue as well. Any color you can find nursery bedding in, you can likely find a complementary glider in as well.
Once you sit in a Nursery Glider, you will see how comfortable it is and you will definitely want more than one. Many people buy a nursery glider for grandmother’s house as well. Baby will love being rocked in the glider and you will enjoy sitting it in. Unlike hard, cold rocking chairs, gliders are padded and comfortable. They ooze warmth and home. They are a great addition to a nursery, but really they warm up any space in the house. An investment in a quality nursery glider is a smart one because it is a chair you will use throughout the lifetime of the glider.
