4 Tips to Choose the Best Nursery Recliner Chair

By: aBaby

Glider Recliners are an important part of the nursery set up. They allow mommy a space to bond with the baby in the room itself, and should the baby fall asleep, it makes it that much easier for mommy to put him into the crib without much disturbance.

When selecting a recliner chair for your baby’s nursery, there are some things you should keep in mind if you want to get the most out of it. Of course, color, cost, and size would be the key things on your mind, but you must go a little deeper in order to get the best glider chair in your budget.

So, here are a few tips that will make choosing a recliner chair for your nursery a little easier:


1. Versatility


Most nursery gliders today will come built with a rocking and reclining system. However, while these are a necessity, it is important to think about what other purposes the chair could serve.


For instance, would it be a comfortable space to feed the baby? Would it be large enough to read to the baby even when he/she gets older? And after the nursery is no longer a nursery, would the glider fit into another room in the house and be just as useful? You would be shelling out a couple of hundred dollars on a glider recliner and so the idea is to get your money’s worth.



2. Easy to clean

This may sound like a silly selection criterion now, but trust me, once your child starts school, you will be thanking your stars that you bought the chair that is easy to clean!

Look for a nursery glider recliner that comes with removable, washable seat covers. Also, this may be just a decorating tip but try to pick out a color that won’t show dirt or stains easily This soft, padded glider chair available at aBaby has a slip-on cover than can be easily washed in the machine or by hand.

3. Safety 


glider rocking chair is going to be your baby’s chair for a long time. It is important to consider the safety of everyone who will be using it before you invest in one. Ensure that there are no sharp or pointed edges. Only go for gliders that have rounded ends. It is also important to see that there are no moving parts that are exposed or that can pinch the child. There should be no opportunity for your baby to get his/her fingers caught anywhere. Thoroughly inspect the glider for any safety hazards before you decide on buying it

4. Ottoman


Ottomans are a good investment because they are extremely comfortable for moms. However, it is important to get a matching ottoman because it is built to match the glider not only aesthetically but also mechanically (meaning that it moves with the same gliding motion as the glider) and is, therefore, safer and more comfortable.


No matter which glider you choose, safety and comfort should be your top priority. It won’t be long before you have added a new family heirloom to your home.
