Nursery Gliders: The must-haves

By: jim mint

Nursery Gliders are considered a necessity for nurseries for the prime reason that both the babies and the parents find the back-and-forth motion in soothing and putting a baby to sleep. The gliders that we see today have taken the basic idea of traditional ones and expanded upon them.

They are able to provide the space to perform the similar functions of cuddling, feeding and rocking the baby, as well as featuring plenty of padding to increased comfort. Many come with ottomans, on which you can rest your feet.

There is a wide variety of nursery gliders available, from traditional heavy ones to sleek and modern ones. Some gliders can easily be converted into chairs, thus they are usable even after your baby has grown out of the glider stage. The innovative glider movement back and forth is extremely soothing for a crying baby and an equally cranky parent at 3 a.m in the morning. The gliders are a safer option for nurseries because they have a flat bottom, thus no edges are likely to pinch a crawling toddler’s toes.

It won’t be wrong to say that nursery gliders cost quite a bit of money. However they are extremely useful during the early days of your newborn. Some people continue to use them for the next five or six years as well as they sit down, telling bed-time stories to their children. Moreover after the glider has fulfilled your purpose, you can easily pass it on to the family.

Let’s have a look at some of the things that one should look for in a Nursery glider:

Comfort: The glider should be comfortable no matter what position you use it in. It should be of the right size with plenty of back support for an average sized person. While trying out a glider, sit in it and make sure there is enough space in it so you can change your position easily. In an ideal glider, your feet should be able to reach the floor at a comfortable angle.
Padded armrests: Wide arm rests are extremely important because arms need support while you hold the baby. You are bound to suffer from numbness and discomfort if your arm rest is not enough padded. Mostly mothers use a nursery pillow that helps them feed their child, thus the armrest should be such that the pillow or cushion fits over the arm rest nicely.
Tough Frame:
You would want the frame of the nursery glider to hold up for years. The frame shouldn’t have any sharp edges that may pose danger to a crawling toddler.
Washable fabric: The fabric and the frame of the glider should be easily cleanable because things like spit ups, diaper over flow and spilled milk can all easily make their way to it. If you have a seat cover that is removable as well as washable, you are in for a jackpot at saving time in maintaining the glider.
Locking mechanism: To stop the glider from moving when it is not required, it is advisable to have a locking mechanism. Moreover with an active toddler in house, the glider need to be locked at all times when not in use to avoid any mishaps.

Happy Gliding with your new born!
