How many of you got a lot of use out of your glider?

I'm contemplating whether to get one. I will be breastfeeding so I think it will come in handy. Any advice?

  • Not sure, I do see a lot of them at second hand stores and such! I actually bought mine from a children's resale shop. It was in great condition. I only sit it in when I read though.

  • We got TONS of use out of ours. My sister-in-law got it for us when we found out we were pregnant. It was the most comfortable place in the house for me while pregnant and after our baby was born we moved it into her room,used it with our second child too. When they woke in the night we would use it, then after it went back into the living room and we still use it. I think its better than a regular recliner, ours reclines, rocks, swivles and has a matching otoman and its so comfortable.

  • I had rocking chairs. I loved my rocking chairs. We didn't do the glider because my grandmother gave me my great grandmother's (I named after her) rocking chair.
