Rocking chairs and gliders offer several benefits for mothers of infants and toddlers. The gentle, rhythmic motion can help soothe fussy babies. They provide a comfortable place for nursing, feeding, and rocking babies to sleep. The additional back support makes it easier for mothers to sit for long periods while caring for an infant.
Mothers should look for padded and cushioned rockers for comfort during long periods of sitting. An ottoman or footrest allows the chair to fully recline. Locking mechanisms can keep the chair steady when not in use. More durable wood choices, such as oak, offer increased longevity. Cup holders and storage pockets can hold items mothers need while caring for their baby.
Many mothers find rocking chairs and gliders useful from infancy through the toddler years. During the first 6-12 months, babies need the chair for soothing and feeding. But as toddlers, children still enjoy sitting in their mother's lap in the chair for story time and conversations. Some mothers report using their glider or rocker for five years or more as their primary sitting chair while caring for young children.
