One of the most important parts of any nursery is the glider. Whether you need somewhere to feed the baby, rock the baby, or just want to sit down and pump, a glider is a great way to do it. There are a lot of different options out there so we researched some of the best ones available and put together this review to help you decide which one is the right one for you. Let’s look at some key features first.
Material: Some of these chairs are completely upholstered while others have a wooden base with a fabric covered back, seat cushion and arms. Both are comfortable and stylish but each style definitely creates a different look.
Swivel: Some of these chairs have a nice swivel, which means they can spin around. Most of the time, they can actually swivel 360 degrees. This is most common with upholstered chairs rather than wooden ones.
Color: Colors vary a lot from one item to the next. Some of them come in a few neutral colors while one of the chairs we included has more than 50 different combinations of wood finish and fabric.
Ottoman: An ottoman isn’t necessary but can really make you more comfortable on those nights when you can’t get your little one to sleep. It’s nice to get your feet up. It’s nicer to do it on a matching ottoman.
Size: If you don’t have a lot of space in your nursery or if you were hoping to use this chair elsewhere, make sure you pay attention to the dimensions. Remember to leave yourself a little room for movement.
Warranty: Most (but not all) of these items come with a 1-year warranty. A chair like this gets a lot of use over the first year of your baby’s life so make sure you know what’s covered and what isn’t.
