12 Stylish Chairs To Rock a Baby In

These aren’t your granny’s rockers.

Once the baby arrives a vast majority of a mama’s time will be spent rocking and nursing, so having a comfortable place to do so is absolutely essential.

I know that the word “rocking chair” may conjure up images of little old grannys knitting by the fire, but I’ve put together a little round up of stylish rocking chairs that will change your mind.  These modern rocking chairs are perfect for rocking a little one now, and for using in other rooms of your house later.

Have a look after the jump!

    I've heard from multiple mamas that gliders are where it's at since you end up spending a large amount of time in them nursing during the first few months, but usually they're not the most stylish. Thankfully, this one looks like the best of both worlds - comfort and style.
