How to choose a feeding chair for your nursery

One of the big decisions new parents will need to make is what furniture to place in the baby nursery. A nursery chair is a fantastic investment as it provides a safe and comfortable spot for breastfeeding that supports mums and soothes babies for a relaxing experience. Before you buy one, consider these factors:

  • Comfort - You’ll be spending a lot of time feeding your baby so comfort is paramount. Look for a nursery chair with excellent cushioning, armrests, a footrest and padded back.
  • Support - A high back, armrests and a foot rest will give you proper support while nursing. Make sure the chair is firm enough to stand up easily without waking the baby.
  • Safety - Make sure recliners have an easy-to-find lever or button for a smooth recline. Some gliders will have a stop-lock mechanism to stop them from rocking when not in use.
  • Practicality - Look for a nursery chair that will be easy to clean and maintain. Decide on whether you want to recline, glide, swivel or rock.
  • Style - Choose a nursery chair that matches your existing nursery decor for a beautiful interior, from modern and minimal to elegant and luxe.

What to look for when shopping for a nursery chair

Keep an eye out for these features in a nursery chair:

  • High back for ample back, neck and shoulder support.
  • Armrests to rest tired arms when holding newborns.
  • Footrest to put your feet up and stretch your legs.
  • Footstool for storing baby essentials like nappies, toys and more.
  • Cushioning for maximum comfort when sitting for long periods.
  • Safety-lock mechanisms in recliners and gliders to prevent accidents.

Different types of nursing chairs

Glide, swivel, rock or recline - nursing chairs give you plenty of options to find one that is perfect for your needs. Take a closer look at the different types:

  • Recliners - A reclining chair leans back to give you more comfort. They can usually be operated using a lever or button on the side which raises a footrest for leg support.
  • Nursery rocking chairs & rockers - These chairs rock back and forth to soothe both mum and bub. Some may also be reclined as they rock.
  • Glider chair - A glider chair rocks back and forth on a platform. The rocking movement is more subtle than a rocking chair. You can also find reclining gliders.
  • Swivel chair - Like swivel chairs for the office, these nursing chairs can swivel around to help you reach for nearby items more easily. A swivel glider can also glide smoothly.

Back and neck support

This is where nursery chairs really shine. They’re lower and wider than regular armchairs with a high back that provides greater support for your back, shoulders and neck. This is hugely important as it reduces aches and pains during and after feeding. Add a matching ottoman to put your feet up as well and support your legs.

Where to position your nursery chair

One of the best spots in the nursery to position the nursery chair is in a corner. It provides a nice, cosy space for you and bub to relax and feed. Make sure you position it far enough out of the corner to recline or rock comfortably. Being near a window with a view can also enhance the experience. Place the cot nearby for easy access to your child.
