Rocking Chair / April 27, 2018 / Jasmine Oliver
It wasn't until we were expecting our first little one that I thought about rocking chairs again. Sure I had sat in many a chair since I was a child, but never thought about buying one for our household. Having a newborn means sleepless nights and tired Mommies and Daddies. Anything you can do to help soothe that new little baby and get him to sleep is a blessing. Having a chair that helped us rock our child to sleep during that time made our job so much easier. I can remember spending hours upon hours rocking my little one to sleep, only to be back in the same chair an hour or two later. This time was special and I look back on that time like it was yesterday. I'm glad I had that one-on-one time to bond with my baby and just watch him fall asleep with the rocking motion. Even today, as my kids are older, they still will crawl up into my lap for a snuggle in our favorite chair. They never tire of the way it makes them feel, and this chair is always a favorite place for story time before bed.
A rocking chair is one of those things that has become a timeless piece of artwork that just outshines most other kinds of chairs. You don't see people fighting over which chair they get to sit in, unless of course the chair in question is a rocking chair. They are just so comfortable that everyone wants to be able to sit in one if it's available.
