Rocking Chair / April 30, 2018 / Ashlee Meyers
Although the rocking chair provides benefits like comfort and relaxation, it may also cause some trouble. It may be unsafe for children because the chair is at contact with floor by only two points. If children stay too close to the chair, there is a possibility that their feet may be squeezed by the rocker. However, this problem is already given a solution. Many rocking chairs are created with springs or platforms that will prevent any form of feet squashing in the future.
First and foremost, you will need to know how tall your child is. If you are buying this as a gift, you can make a simple phone call to get that information. The child's height is important because you want them to be able to get in and out of the chair without assistance. Having their own chair builds their identity and independence, and being able to get in and out of it by themselves only fosters this. Generally speaking, mini rocking chairs are geared for 1 to 3 year olds and the seat height is around 10 inches. The next step up is a child size chair for 3 to 8 year olds, which usually has a height around 10.5-12.5 inches. If your child is on the taller side for his age, you might want to purchase the child size chair so they won't grow out of it too quickly.
