Until very recently, I thought all nursery rockers were the same. Then I discovered the BodyRest by Best Chairs: the rocker that has the ability to recline completely flat.
This might sound like a frivolous addition to your nursery necessities, but for parents with a newborn it's completely brilliant. Late night feedings and sick kiddos both mean leaving your bed and trudging to the nursery, only to spend the wee hours of your morning uncomfortably nodding off in an upright glider. While I think most moms are undeniably resilient, I'm sure we can all agree that catching your Zs in a nursery chair, night after night, is far from restful. Enter BodyRest. Not only does it recline into a full horizontal position, it offers the comfort and support of a bed mattress. It's like having an extra bed in your baby's nursery, but without demanding so much space.
Amazingly, this isn't its only perk. Whether you're fully reclined, sitting upright or posing somewhere in between, the kick-out ottoman can be pushed out or in, depending on your preference. For swollen mommy ankles, this is a nice detail. Plus, since it's a part of Best Chairs' Storytime Series, you can pick from a variety of adorable fabrics, leather and vinyl to create the perfect chair for your space. You may want to consider something a little more grown up, though, because the BodyRest's sturdy build and cozy arrangements aren't going to leave you wanting to kick it to the curb when your babe outgrows his nursery! Recliner by day, bed by night… the BodyRest recliner is more than a chair: it's a superhero.
