  • I see nothing wrong with a secondhand one.... most of the furniture stores are having Labor day sales on their merchandise though!

  • Never had one. I wanted an Eames Shell Rocker but that was out of my price range ($500) and HATE the typical nursery glider so I just didn't get any.

    I do always see them in second hand baby stores around here in really good condition for $40-50. At that price you can always make slipcovers for the cushions and really integrate it into the decor of the nursery.

  • I got my rocker from my husband's grandma's basement. My MIL remembers it from her grandma's house. It was free.

  • We found one at Walmart for $100. It's called the Dorel Glider Rocker (we opted out of getting the foot stool since we did not have a lot of room). We looked at all the high end ones and did not see that big of a difference (We had already spent over $1,000 on our son's crib so we did not want to spend another $300-$600 on a glider). Our son will be 5 months old on Thursday and the chair is holding up great... I rock him at every nap, every night, and used to nurse on it every 2 hours. The cushions have not worn at all and its a very comfy chair.
