We have started shopping for the key pieces for baby already and today was devoted to finding a rocker. I really want a comfortable one that can someday be used in another area of our house. I loved the shape and feel of this one (we would do green cording) but the back wasn't high enough for it comfortable to rest in while rocking or feeding.
We also loved the next one but it was much more expensive because it was a recliner and I don't see myself using the extra feature enough to justify the extra money.
I think we settled on the following one because it has almost everything we are looking for.
We will order in the the following fabric though so it will have a feel much more like the first one than the way it looks now in the current fabric.
If anyone had a best chair I'd love to hear what you think or if you've found a great brand of rockers like these that are under $1,000 I'd love to hear about them. We are trying to stay away from the babies r us ones though because the reviews are so bad (if you've loved yours though and had no problems let me know).
One thing we already bought was our stroller. So many of our friends have the bob and love it so it was a no brainer when we realized we could use our once yearly REI 20% off coupon to buy it. We even got to try it out with our goddaughter today at the park.
My husband decided it needed to be able to handle anything including bouldering.
