Nothing beats a reliable and comfortable nursery glider in helping parents feed, pacify, or simply bond with their little ones. Nursery gliders are the contemporary recreations of the traditional rocking chairs, and are fast becoming the new staples in nursery furniture. While traditional rocking chairs tip you forward and backward as you lean back and forth, nursery gliders allow you to slide from back to front in a smoother gliding motion. This mechanism is allowed by the springs and ball bearings on which a nursery glider is mounted, which make for a more even gliding movement perfect for soothing your baby, breastfeeding, bottle-feeding, or spending some quiet time to help baby transition from activity to peaceful sleep.
Nursery gliders, with the latest trend in design involving more and more options for the padded or upholstered type, are also generally considered to be more comfortable than the old-fashioned rocking chairs of the past years. Upholstered chairs incorporated into well-crafted nursery gliders make for a soft and cozy seating that will provide you optimum comfort even in extended periods of sitting. There are also nursery gliders that can be customized according to your personal preferences, so you can match your glider’s fabric type and color to your nursery room’s theme. Extra features such as locking mechanisms can help keep the nursery glider safer, while reclining and 360°-swivel mechanisms offer even more versatility and comfort options for you and your baby. High-quality modern gliders with clean-lined designs and stain-resistant fabric can even be moved out of the nursery room later on, to be enjoyed by you and your family well beyond your baby’s nursery years.
