Rocking Chair / April 27, 2018 / Emma Maxwell
Moving outside, by choosing the proper plans and weather treated lumber, you can create beautiful outdoor furniture which could last for a decade or more. Often outdoor furniture purchased at the local super center is made from plastic, cheap fabrics, and metal supports. While it may stand up to the weather, it does not look great doing it. A classic looking two seat Adirondack rocking chair sitting on your deck or front porch will look fabulous. Instead of settling for cheap looking furniture and paying a bundle, grab your tools, a few materials, and build your own classic outdoor chair.
Now, prepare your sitting area with amenities for yourself and some sort of white-noise maker for your baby. You may be in your rocking chair for a while, so be sure you have something to eat and drink at hand, and something to do like watch television or read a book or newspaper set up on a stand. A quietly playing TV, or the hum of a fan or air-conditioner are soothing sounds that your newborn will be comforted by. Finally, get to rocking! Cradle your baby on your shoulder or chest and maintain a nice and gentle rocking motion. You are going to find out two things here. The first is that your infant will fall asleep quickly, and rest soundly and happily. And the second is that you yourself will fall in love with your new rocking chair. Adults can be comforted by the sway of a rocking chair too! You'll find yourself relaxing and enjoying the company of your baby like never before.
