While a feeding chair may not immediately come to mind as an essential part of a new baby room setup, with the cot, compactum and other elements often considered first, few pieces of baby furniture will offer the comfort and practicality that a rocker chair does.
Your baby will spend a great deal of time feeding, cuddling and sleeping on mom and dad, and all of these wonderful activities can be conducted peacefully and comfortably for baby on a rocker chair that also aids in keeping baby calm and preparing the little one for bed.
Factor in the comfort for tired parents who are adjusting to the needs of a newborn, and you have yourself a winner!
In fact, in a recent poll of new parents who considered their favourite pieces of baby furniture, the majority pointed out their feeding chairs as must-haves, while many of these mentioned the ability for the chair to rock baby to a blissful sleep as benefit number one. While other feeding chairs such as the one below are wonderfully comfortable and plush, adding the element of rocking brings it to the next level.
As a cradling device for mother and child, or dad for that matter, the rocker chair provides a wonderful place in which parents are able to bond with their children. The chair is also known for its ability to calm the spirit, soothe a stressed body and focus the mind.
The benefits for mom go well beyond de-stressing and bonding, it seems. According to an article in the "Physical Therapy Review", a study of women who had caesarean sections showed a faster recovery if they spent an hour a day rocking, with these same mothers experiencing less gas pains, walking faster, and leaving the hospital one day sooner than non-rocking mothers.
So while the other baby furniture pieces are fundamental for baby in one way or another, the rocker chair is a little slice of luxury that will soon become the most loved part of the baby room for all concerned. Trust us when we tell you that this is a must-have which both you and baby will fully enjoy.
Whatever your style might be, we have a wide range of quality rocker chairs that will soon become a family favourite for both parents and baby. Visit Dream Furniture's website and showroom to experience the beauty of baby and kids furniture.
