How much is too much to spend on a nursery rocker?
what if you really really really love it?
what if it comes with real legs to put on after its done being a rocker for living room use?
what if you just really really love it? haha….
talk me in or out of buying this beautiful chair 🙂

ooo i love that! Gliders are super expensive and I refuse to pay full price for one. I saw a great one on craigslist the other day for 50 that looks similar to this but has an ottoman.
That being said if you can swing it get it! its a beautiful chair and will probably last through many babies and beyond.

I think it’s all how much you can afford and how much sue you will get out of it. I plan on having more than one child so I know I’ll get use of ours and I bought a chair that could later be moved into the living room. It was on sale for $650.

haha oh it’s way more than $250.. It’s about $1100.
To be honest I just don’t like the look of wooden gliders very much and I dont liek the way gliding “feels” if that makes any sense? I much prefer the rocking motion to gliding… and you can buy real legs for this one to make it look like a real living room chair later down the line.
Is it silly to spend thismuch on a chair that will be used to rock babies? i can’t decide.

It’s lovely. I would say if it is on par with what you spend on other large ticket home items, then, no, it’s not too much but if most of the rest of your stuff is Target or Ikea, yes it would be.

I love that chair! Gorgeous!
I think if you can afford it and will love it, go for it!

I’m almost always in the “if you can afford it comfortably and you want it” then get it camp. If it would cause financial hardship, I would say no, but if it’s a luxury item you can afford, why not?

I like it, and I think $1100 is pretty reasonable for a really solid piece of furniture that you’ll use for years and years.
That fabric looks like it will show absolutely everything a baby can throw at it. White may be the worst possible choice. There is poop! And pee! And vomit! And they will be happening all over the place. A print would be more practical, or a darker color.

I LOVE our glider, but you really want the gliding ottoman too. Our son is 2 and we use it every single night. Love it. We got one that was cushy, with a high back (for those early months when I was tired and wanted to rest my head) and a roomy seat so we still have plenty of room for us and a toddler to read stories before bedtime.
If you plan to keep it post baby then it is worth investing in a quality piece of furniture.

i’m in the same spot right now with a glider/rocker. every time i start liking a chair, it’s ALWAYS the one that is $1K. and we definitely don’t spend that kind of money on furniture.

I’m terrible, and I’m sure that when I start shopping I’ll probably change my mind…but I would be afraid to get something super nice because I could just see it with like, baby puke or something on the side…lol

I agree with the ‘too much’ is what you can’t comfortably afford. But here’s my story about whether it’s silly to spend that much on a chair that will be used to rock babies: A rocking chair was the only thing my mom desperately wanted when she was pregnant with me and they absolutely could not afford it. A couple months before they had me, my parents won the lottery (not a ton but when you’re poor…). The rocking chair they bought rocked me, rocked my sister, and is waiting for me to claim it to rock mine someday. Rocking babies is important!
