6 of the Best Nursing and Rocking Chairs in Australia in 2022

We all know that the fourth trimester is a notorious Baptism of Fire for new parents. The fourth trimester is described as the first 12 weeks of a baby's life outside the womb. It can be crazy, with feeds all around the clock - as for some reason your baby doesn't understand night from day. Crazy, eh?

During this period - and beyond - it's important to have the right rools around you to make the transition into parenthood easier. It's about survival after all! That's where a great rocking chair comes into play. Women spend enough time feeling uncomfortable during pregnancy, there's no need for that to continue during the early months.

In fact, there's no need for either parent to be uncomfortable, as well as sleep deprived. The right nursing chair can put baby and parent at ease during feeding time, which can subsequently soothe a stressful period.

What to look for in a rocking chair:

When choosing a nursing chair for your home, it's important to look for a product that works in your home and for your family.

- Size:

Is your nursery quite compact or is there room to move? This is something to take into consideration before choosing between a rocking chair, which is generally just one chair that rocks from front to back, or a glider chair, which often comes in two pieces; the chair and the footrest (both of which glide) and takes up a little more room.

- Longevity:

Does your nursing chair look like a nursing chair, or is it possible to incorporate it into your home furniture set up after you no longer need to use it as a feeding chair for your baby? If the chair won't fit within your home furniture, you have to decide how you'll use it down the track, and whether you'll need to sell it, place it in storage or pass it on to a friend.

- Comfort:

Does the chair you're considering feel comfortable for long periods of time? You may be stuck there underneath a beautiful baby for quite a while, so you want to make sure your butt won't go to sleep! Look for plush cushioning and a fabric that will see you through all the seasons. For example, if your home tends to get warm, then leather may not be the right option for you.

- Stability:

It's very important to consider the structure of the nursing chair you're considering, to ensure it can hold everyone who intends to use it, is well made and comes with a good warranty.

If the fabric has been fire treated, this is also a big plus!
