Q: Why do I need a nursery chair specified? Can’t I just feed my baby in a regular chair?

Yes, you may, but there are some drawbacks of using a regular chair for breastfeeding. First one - back pain. Feeding your baby is neither simple nor easy. It might take up to an hour per session, and 8 to 12 times per day. This can lead to back pain if you don’t get the proper support from a non-nursing chair. Many new moms developed severe back problems during breastfeeding and ended up spending more money on medical bills. Thus a nursery chair like a nursery rocking chair or a nursery glider is specially designed for breastfeeding, can give the proper support to your back, neck and arms during breastfeeding. And because a nursery chair is specially designed for nursing moms and babies, it is usually safer and built with materials that are easy to clean.

Q: What other time do I need a nursing chair except feeding my baby?

A nursery chair is not just for breastfeeding. It also makes it easier for parents to put their baby to sleep thanks to the built-in rocking or gliding motions. These gentle rocking or gliding movements can help calm and soothe the baby. It saves your energy on walking around the room and imitating the rocking or gliding motions to calm your baby.

Q: Alright, that’s great, but is there more reason?

Yes, there is one more important reason that makes buying a nursery chair a good investment - That is precious skin-to-skin bonding time. It's true that babies need to sleep a lot - 12 to 16 hours a day, but they also need some "social" time. And that's when a nursery chair plays its role. A nursery chair provides a perfect spot for you to snuggle with your little one. Hold them closely to you and enjoy the rocking or gliding motion together. This will make your baby feel happy, calm, and secured.

Q: What can I do with the nursery chair after my baby grows up?

There are many options. The easiest is just leave it in your kids room as a playful spot. You kids can use it to read books, relax or take a short nap. Or you can move it to your living room as an extra living room seat. Here are some other ways people deal with a nursery chair after their babies grow up.

    • A place to bond with your precious angel

        When your baby grows, you can still use this chair to spend bonding moments together. You can sit on it with your baby on your lap and read some bedtime stories. Or you can watch the kids play in the nursery while you yourself read a light novel would be great too.

        • Your own relaxing place

          While your baby is sleeping on the bed or baby cot, you can take a breather and relax yourself on this chair. Close your eyes, rock yourself back and forth, and take a nap. Even if your kids are all grown up, you can still spend some relaxing moments on this chair. After a long and tiring day, a comfortable chair is what you need. It would even be nicer if you had the recliner or glider type.

          • The elderly would love it too!

          At times, your parents or grandparents might come to visit for a couple of days. They complain of back pain after a long journey. Why not let them sit and relax on the nursery chair? It sure helps ease the pain a bit. Before you know it, the chair will become their favorite spot to sit every time they come over.

          • Your kids might want to have it in their room!

          You can just place it in your kids’ room. They will love it, for sure. They can sit on it while reading or maybe taking a nap in it. This way, you don’t have to buy a new chair for your kid. Just remember to remind them not to jump or cling to the chair so as not to topple it over.

          • A sentimental piece with thousands of memories

          As time flies, you no longer have a nursery in your house, but somehow the nursery chair will stay. It might not look as shiny as it used to, or perhaps the fabric is torn a bit here and there. But when you look at it, all those precious moments you spent with your child will flood your memories. And you realize you miss your kids even though they are just having a class at a middle school not far from your house.

          Q: I’m not a sentimental person and I don’t think I have the space for one when it is no longer needed.

          If that's the case then don’t worry, it will still not go to waste. You can resell it on places like Facebook Marketplace or donate it to someone who needs it more than you do right now. But make sure you take care of it nicely.
