Buying of nursery furniture is nearly complete. We have a crib ordered and we have the changing table/dresser ordered. The last major piece of needed furniture is something for me to sit in while I nurse Roo.
We had been looking at gliders including the one that I shared with you on my last nursery update:
But then I decided to look at the PBK ones a little closer. I went to the store the other afternoon and sat in both the glider that I like (see image below) and the wing backed rocker:
To throw a further wrench in my decision process, I also have added the PBK Sleigh Glider into the mix (it matches our crib):
And now I can’t decide. I really like the rocker but will it be as useful and comfortable as a glider? Gliders seem to be the preferred seating option by parents these days. All of these options (except the sleigh glider) convert to fixed pieces of furniture once we are done using it in the nursery, so all three are potentials. I’ve only had the chance to sit in the first two PBK pieces, so I can only speak to their comfort. The other two are unknowns.
I’m kind of leaning towards the sleigh glider because I know it’ll match the other pieces of furniture. It is also the least expensive – under $500.
I’d love your thoughts: what do you prefer? A glider or a rocker? If a glider, which of the three gliders do you like the best? First poshtots.com glider, PBK comfort glider or the sleigh glider? As a reminder, I’m getting a nursing stool instead of an ottoman to start to save on money and space.
Eventually, though perhaps sooner than later, I’ll add a nightstand and a book shelf to Roo’s room.
