Life with a newborn can be pretty demanding. You’re up and down all day feeding bub, changing them, soothing them to sleep, comforting them when they wake – and repeat.
A good nursing chair for those hours spent holding your cherub can make all the difference.
The modern range of recliners and gliders from Design Kids tick all the boxes. Designed with comfort in mind, their range of nursing chairs are the helping hand mums need to keep bubs content and calm while they adjust to life with a newborn. And they add serious style to any nursery – you won’t want to stand up.
Nurseryworks Sleepytime Rocker
With traditional-style rocking legs, the Sleepytime Rocker ($849) gently sways back and forth to maintain that all-important soothing motion to send your sweetpea off to sleep. An extra-wide seat means there’s plenty of room for you both to fit, so you can settle in for a bedtime story or nestle into the night-time feeds with ease.
And when those late-night nursing nibbles attack, getting up and down without stirring your sleepy bear is a breeze.
Because comfort is key, the solid and durable frame provides firm support to the lower back. Need a little more cushioning? The removable lumbar pillow can be repositioned as needed throughout the night to either support babies head or simply lighten the load under your elbow.
This beauty has literally got your back.
Babyletto Kiwi Electronic Recliner
The Babyletto Kiwi Recliner ($1099) is an absolute dream if your little one likes taking their time to feed or settle.
Featuring a built-in USB port, smooth back-and-forth gliding and an elevated footrest, there’s no need to rush – just rest and recharge. Whether you’re blissfully feeding or cuddling your sweet bundle of joy, lean back and enjoy it all at the simple touch of a button.
The reclining mechanism is smooth and quiet, so you don’t have to worry about it disturbing bub. And the electric control panel is cleverly hidden within the armrest, keeping buttons and controls out of baby’s reach.
DaVinci Swivel Gliders
When it comes to supporting both you and your bambino, the DaVinci Olive Glider with Ottoman ($699) is a work of art. The high back offers optimum head and neck support while the ottoman is the perfect place to rest those weary feet. And for extra lower back support, the lumbar pillow included is just the ticket. There is also a recliner option available in this style – the Piper Glider Recliner ($749).
For those times when life gets messy, it’s made from fabrics that can be wiped clean, so you can be confident it’s ready for anything life throws at it – milk, spit-up and more – and still look stunning.
Even better, they’re designed to last well beyond the baby years, with a neutral colour palette that blends seamlessly into any room in your home when those baby days are no more.
The DaVinci, Kiwi and Nurseryworks nursing chairs are available online from Design Kids.
