Rocking Chair / April 27, 2018 / Emma Maxwell
The origin of the rocking chair is unknown but the first ones we do know of originated in England in the early 1700's and were made near Windsor Castle in Berkshire (which lies about a 20 minute drive away from Heathrow Airport) hence the name 'Windsor Rocker'. In all probability it came about through watching the therapeutic effect of gently rocking a baby in it's cradle, so why not do the same for adults? England was not the only country to have the rocker at that time, Sweden had another form around 1740 called the 'Gungstol', which just means rocking chair. These originally had 6 legs and were traditionally painted black with gold outlines. A four legged version became popular in the 1800's
Nowadays, parents do have a lot of choices where they can pick the best rocking chair for babies, either they want traditional baby nursing chairs which are usually made of woods and does not move or they can stick with modern baby rocking chairs which usually has a glider and more stylish in its design. Attractive and cute nursing chairs for babies are surely available. Aside from the lovely appearance of our babies' rocking chair, parents should never forget to check the nursing gliding chairs for nursery over all structure. Safety of our babies' is really very necessary. So moms and dads should see and check and be sure that the nursing chair has no any sharp corners or edges. For gliding rocking chairs, be aware of the squeaking sound it creates. If you can hear something, then do not pick it, for sure it will not let your baby fall asleep well. All we want for our babies is for them to be comfortable. Since they are not able to talk yet and say what they feel, it is very important for the parents to be very sensitive with a baby's feelings. Giving them anything that would help them achieve more comfort is our priority. So have your own rocking chairs for nursery now and give your babies extra love and care.
