When you’re expecting a new baby, one major thing on your to-do list it to decorate the nursery. This is where you’ll be bringing your bundle of joy home to after the hospital, where everyone visiting will see, and where you will be spending a lot of time over the next year. Most nurseries tend to have a rocking chair in the corner but this isn’t purely for decorative purposes. You may spend several nights sleeping in this chair rather than your own bed and it’s where you’ll rock your little one to sleep most nights. Becuase of this, you’ll want to pick the best one for your needs.
Of course, not all rocking chairs are the same. Here are a few ideas we love for nurseries:
A Glider. Today’s rocking chairs don’t necessarily need to “rock.” Some parents and even some babies prefer a gliding motion instead. This motion makes it easier to get the baby to sleep and keep them asleep. Don’t forget the matching ottoman to put your feet on when the long hours catch up to you!
Bright Colors. Babies love bright colors; looking at them helps their eyes develop and adjust to life. It is a fun and pretty decorating idea to place a bright-colored rocking chair in their room to look at all of the time. And you’ll appreciate the extra place to sit.
Wood. Of course, you can’t go wrong with neutral colors and a solid wood rocking chair is the best way to go neutral. Today’s parents are moving away from pink for girls and blue for boys. As well, if this is your first baby and you plan to have more, sticking with neutral colors means you can use the same nursery for all of your children.
