Rocking out

Like with so many things in life, I have changed my mind again...

I decided against the glider I had picked out for our nursery- in fact I decided against a glider at all.
I was so set on one like the picture I shared before:

After buying this one and returning it because it was damaged and not exactly what I expected, I thought I would look around a bit more before buying a new one.

We used our office chair in the nursery for a while which actually worked alright but wasn't at all practical. I'm sure not all babies spit up as much as our little one, but that chair really took a beating. I had to spray and scrub it clean a lot from spit up somehow managing to make its way onto the cushion and arms of the chair. Thankfully the chair was black so if there are small stains I can't see them. To be clear I always use a receiving blanket when burping and do what I can to contain any spit up but Elias manages to sneak some by me a LOT.

After a few weeks in our new place with the office chair as an experiment I decided that I didn't want anything with any kind of upholstery for our nursery. It just wouldn't work for Elias and I.

That's why when I saw the following rocker at a store near us called Wheatons I just had to have it. Of course it was also on sale- Bonus!

It's pretty close to an exact match for the crib, it's easy to wipe down and it's comfy!

I think it's made for outdoor use, but love it! What do you think?


  1. I love it and think it looks perfect :)

  2. I love it!
    It's not at all what I thought you'd go for - but I think it's absolutely perfect :o)
    I can't wait to see what else you do to little Eli's room!
