Just started looking at purchasing furniture for the baby's room and I have always thought that a glider / rocking chair

I ALWAYS use my glider -- so much so that when DS1 was a year old, I actually bought another one second-hand.

I was very hesitant to get one as well thinking I wouldn't use it and I have ended up using mine a bunch.

I didn't use it much when dd was a baby, but we use it all the time for reading books, esp at bed time now.

I didn't use mine with any of them, I found them to be so uncomfortable. If we get another nursery chair it will be something like this, not this exact one but something similar.

We used ours and like pp enjoyed it so much that one is in tv room and one in nursery. When we have company over

they always take the glider. The only part that doesn't get used is the footstool.

With my first, I had a huge upholstered rocking/reclining chair in the nursery and I used it constantly. I liked that sometimes I could rock and also just recline back and I'd usually fall asleep! I used the chair for nursing my son and then later we'd sit there together every night with story books.
If you are considering chairs, look into something with padded arms. I've sat in some of those gliders that just have wooden arms and they are pretty uncomfortable.

I really like it and got it on sale even cheaper than that.

We have that same one for the same reason, Allison!

I like it pretty well and we've definitely gotten are money's worth out of it.

The one Sarah posted looks really comfy too. I may need to go check that out.

Allison, did the seat and arm cussions hold up pretty well? The ones I have had they go flat so quickly and thats what seems to make them so uncomfortable. I might try this one if it holds up well.
